What a good day it’s been. An old friend came through town last night unexpectedly and stayed over, so we got to have waffles and coffee with him this morning. Later we went out to cross-country ski on our gorgeous new snow, under bluebird skies. We had homemade naan and black bean soup for supper. We got to be on national TV– twice in one day!– and had the pleasure of reading a whole bunch of comments from people doing similar (in many cases, more impressive and inspiring) things. Now it’s 13ºF outside, and the cats are circling for bedtime.
