This is how it looked at 6:30 am this morning. So peaceful and quiet. The tree limbs are laden with perfect, white snow.
My power came back on at 8:30 am, so the house is beginning to warm up again. (Electric heat.) I'm snuggled here at the computer with my robe and slippers; but I'm venturing downstairs soon for hot tea and buttery toast with Peach Belini jam -- a Xmas market item -- and some good, old cheddar. Yum!
My friend was right about last weekend's de-construction of the Xmas tree: I do love the "new" look. And I now have a very clean, tidy house ... upstairs. (Can I stress upstairs? Don't look in the basement rec room!). Well, there are still these guys who visited the manger & decided to stick around.
So today can be a relaxing snow day full of reading and lounging and perhaps some of this as well:
|Homemade soup and steamed red bean buns. I always have these in my winter freezer because they're a perfect snow day food -- warm and gooey and nutritious.|
