And I was on my game! I did my "day before a snow storm" grocery shopping, which our local weatherman referred to as the "Bread and Milk Day" :) By the time the snow blew in, the cinnamon rolls were raising, the cookies were in the oven, clam chowder on the stove and sour dough bread ready to be prepped for soup bowls. I would walk to the window with my nonfat cappuccino in hand and watch the snow fall and accumulate. I love that snowed in, warm and cozy feel...

That speedy rabbit who falls asleep versus that pokey turtle who keeps his nose to the grindstone. Then there's that Grapes of Wrath turtle who doesn't give up seeking self-survival. Slowly working his way to his self-determined finish line. That must be the key. Slow, steady work toward a goal. Something is better than nothing. Wed, 13 Feb 2013 11:48:45 EST
