Snow Day

dsc_0373-2

There’s something pretty special about a snow day.

Whisper of disbelief:  It’s a … Snow Day.

Like all of the very best of good fortune, a snow day is really sort of magical.

Dream-like and unexpected.

And, of course, I had all the very best intentions to use this sudden abundance of time so wisely, so well.

But magic simply won’t permit such practicality. Or allow itself to be managed.

Because magic is … well, magic.

With a spirit all its very own.

And so, I wasn’t all that productive … but here’s a list of my very favorite picture books about snow… because the spirit and magic of a snow day never grows old.

  1. Gosh, I do love coming here. Always. It’s peaceful and lifegiving ’round these parts. I breathe deep, I smile, my soul is often stirred.

    You give me a haven, friend. I am grateful our paths cross often.
