It's not chocolate, but still.
I will send you books,
bound like a schoolgirl's hair
with radiant ribbons,
a tribute to the stillness of your soul,
entwined, breathing in the silence
into the heart of darkness
or whatever else we might find there
new thoughts encroach as,
our fingers touching, we turn the page
verso, yours, and

OK, so the last day won't really be until Sunday, but it's the last day of the work week. I felt really aimless all day. I cleaned the kitchen and made the beans. I went for a walk, listening to the snow crunch under my feet, and sniffing at the frosty tang in the air that you only feel and smell when it has snowed. Some kids were playing in the snow. They had made wall out of blocks of snow and I do believe they were working on making some snowballs. Good times.
I haven't seen snow

So we are out a third day, all because the temperature is below freezing. What luck!
I painted this afternoon; I would really like to post my stuff, but I don't know how. Maybe I can get someone to help me tomorrow.

I hope people realize that this is tongue-in-cheek, but just in case I'll go ahead and tell you.
I survived the night. I wore my bathrobe to bed and slept under a comforter, a down blanket

Yippee! I'm at home today. No school, now work. Home. All because of sleet and maybe an inch of snow. Life is awesome.
I plan to drink tea, paint, maybe watch a movie. Life is good. Not so good maybe for the 18 wheelers that persist in trying to drive around here. Lots of accidents.
And it's snowing! Tiny little flakes, but here, nevertheless. I'm going to go watch it.
We are going to be closed on Wednesday,
