atlanta has been experiencing some serious winter wonderland-ness. i love it. all of it. things i am grateful for, in no particular order...
...i love that atlanta is wildly unprepared for any sort of snowpocalypse and most schools were closed all week long.
...i love that ed didn't have to go to work for half the week.
...i love walking our beagles in the snow(even though i slipped and fell flat on my back).
...i love numb noses and sloshy bean boots.
...i love walking to the grocery store for silly things like paper towels.
... i love hunkering down in my home and giving each neglected room the care it needed.
... i love making various soups for days on end(beef tenderloin, cauliflower, chicken & almond, and a hearty chicken and vegetable).
... i love curling up in my weathered leather club chair wrapped in a wool blanket, beagle in lap, book in hand.
i love being snowed in, because it gave me time to be extremely introspective and calm. it gave me incredible time to tend to the parts of my home that i had ignored. and it gave me time to be with my family in a warm and happy home, with burning cedar incense to pretend a fire was blazing. and lots and lots of soup.
