Slow Snow Day

I'm not even venturing outside to take a photo of our beautiful snow. (well, I might later...)
Public schools are closed, and we are just home from a weekend in Michigan for a family Christmas gathering. It's 9:30 am, and I feel like a sLow sNow day.

Blackeyed Susan and Alvin Fernald are still in bed. When they get up, I think I'll tell them that the only chores they have today are to free Charming's car (he took mine to work) and do dishes (we were REALLY lazy after returning home yesterday afternoon...). Maybe we can watch a Christmas movie or two. Maybe throw in a load or two of laundry. An easy supper of beef-and-noodles.

I've been trying to Slow Down this holiday. Maybe, just maybe, the Lord sent a snow day so we can get quiet, stay home, and just enjoy ourselves...

Maybe. But I sure am glad there are still a few days before Christmas to get-all-of-that-other-stuff-done. OR...maybe I'll learn a lesson today. All-that-other-stuff-doesn't-need-to-get-done. Maybe the world won't fall apart if it doesn't.

Is this my year to finally learn that? Gee, I hope so.

So wonderful to "get quiet, stay home, and just enjoy ourselves". I'm so grateful that we're "retired" and are listening to our hearts this Season. The "things to do" that warm us spiritually and the "things to do" that share love with others--these are on our "To Do List"...
Warm greetings,

Hooray for staying in! You should hear the Jars of Clay song, Hibernation Day. It's so cute and the perfect soundtrack for a staying in day! :^D
