When Seasons Collide

The dining room was unusually bright at 5:30 this morning.

The words “Westside schools delayed two hours” could only have made me happier if they had read: “Schools closed.”

When Cole woke up, I told him to look out his window. He's been longing for snow - and March snowstorms are rare here. He radiated joy.

After a quick breakfast, we made our way to the park, where other snow-charmed people were sledding and pelting one another with snowballs.

After an hour or so, we trudged home to get ready for work and school.

“This is a day to remember, isn’t it?” said Cole.

Aaaah, it wasn't important!

I always get up early, whether I want to or not. I used to have to get to work at 7:30 a.m. Now I don't get there until 8:30 because I take my son to school, but I still wake up early. Almost the only time I can get any writing done is before everyone else wakes up. Unfortunately, my son must have missed that memo, because he continues to be a shockingly early riser.

When I was trying to finish my WIP by the end of the year, I would get up at ungodly hours to write. Minutes after I sat down ... I would be greeted by his cute but awake self.

Here's a particularly frustrated entry from that period:

What a lovely sentiment -- a day to remember indeed.

I saw those pictures and reacted with horror, as we are having a warm, springish day and I could not be happier.

I'm glad you guys had a good time & were able to enjoy it. :)
