The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.
Happy Family Day*
* For those outside of certain Canadian Provinces – yes, that is a real holiday, apparently we "needed" a break so they threw one in.
I'm not complainng mind you, especially since work threw in an extra day! I get a 4 Day Weekend! Huzzah! Hallelujah! The laundry might actually get done. Ahahahaha no, just kidding!
Our plans are weather dependant – if it is a blustery feels like -27C (that’s a balmy -17F for you USAers) we’ll probably opt for indoor activities like eating, drinking, and arguing about music and politics. If it’s warmer we’ll venture out into the snow - maybe look for animal tracks in the woods.
The deer were pretty active last night; we’ve got little hoofy prints everywhere! Did either my ferocious were-beast, or vicious couch-cougar, alert me to their presence? No, no they did not, however they did make sure I got up in time for breakfast (no they did not start the coffee…)
To whoever invented fantasy, redwood trees, and apple pie for breakfast: well done.
