A Rare Stay at Home Day

Stay at home days have become rare treasures in our life, but Monday was one of those, a beautiful gift from God.

The outside world was piled high with fluffy snow.  School children had a snow day, but we did a wee bit of math and spelling beside the cozy fire.

Then dozens and dozens of starlings dotted our road, pecking at the salt.  Occasionally they flew off to huddle on the hydro wires or decorate the bare maple across the way, but as we watched they always swooped back down to peck at the salty asphalt.

Our curious rabbit Bunbun got her fourth bath.  When she dipped her inquisitive nose into the water she sneezed, but other than that and having her tummy towelled dry, she enjoyed her spa.

The girls decorated our house for Christmas.  Our home is too small—or too full of people and books—for a tree, but that constraint encourages us to be creative.  Most years the result is pleasant, and this year we may actually have attained elegance, at least in the windows.

I wish you many happy moments during the Christmas celebrations.  May you have the time and energy to notice them, enjoy them, and thank God for them!

And another window.

And another window.
