Ahhh. This is a rare moment in time when one girl baby is napping and one boy child is out playing in the snow with his daddy. Even the canine is otherwise engaged in a snowball fight so I have nobody to corral, guide, or clean. It feels good. So good. I'm trying to embrace this sweet chunk of life and breathe. They say the Bigger Snow is rounding the corner so I'm sure this house will be alive with chaos and noise in short order but for now I listen to the nothing, recharge and daydream of farms,
and great food.
You can take the stress out of the mom but you can never make her leave her kitchen.
P.S. That mouthwatering lovely above is Chicken Parm from Pioneer Woman's site. It's what's for dinner tonight. I will shovel more snow in atonement tomorrow.
