Today ended up being a quiet work day in the house. The kids played nicely and helped me out with the tasks I asked for help with. I love those Saturdays when you can dedicate an entire day to a project, on home things, like gathering the Christmas decorations and remnants, and getting the pile of accumulating homeschool books to a bookshelf.
The snow started falling in the later afternoon. I do love the snow on a warm day like this. The floor along my bedroom wall is clear again, my bedroom closet is clean again, and the lights shine on from the living room corner. I’m not really feeling that lasting post-Christmas joy this year, but I’m admittedly not ready to take the dang thing down.
