Snow Days

To say its cold is a hellish understatement.  The kitchen pipes are frozen.  My lovely little cricket car made one weak attempt to turn over yesterday, and then gave up.  She’s left word she’ll be back when she can see black road again.  The grandgirls are going on day four of no school.  Send sunshine you warm weather folks!  Or valium…whichever is cheaper to ship.

I should be working on THE BOOK.  But I’ve stared at the screen for two days, and while the scene is rattling around in my head like a handful of marbles in a shoebox, I just can’t get the words onto the screen.  So I went outside to play instead.  I can’t remember having a winter full of snow like this since I was a kid.  The grandgirls had never seen one, so it was my absolute duty to teach them the fastest way to get down a hill on a sled, how to make snow angels without getting your butt totally wet and how to test the pond to see if the ice was thick enough to skate (it wasn’t).

 Its quiet in the house now, Papa Bear has taken the grandgirls to visit with his parents.  I’m sore, and chapped but Ben Harper is in the background, singing about morning yearning.  Through the window  by my desk I can see its snowing again, but the space heater is keeping me toasty warm.  I should be writing Philip’s story…

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
