Wintery Mix

by Hannah

Everything soggy cold, freezing then thawing then freezing again. Got the car stuck off the side of the drive. Can’t wait to use the brand new winch we got for Christmas tomorrow!! Shoveling tires out of sleet ruts, wrapping webbing around tree stems, tugging at the winch lever…sounds like a fabulous Saturday morning to me. (Actually, I’m not being sarcastic.) Lamb and lentils on the menu. Contemplating this Mother Jones article and also this blog by a coworker – both pieces on food, money, and creating challenges. The wind is whipping past my curtains; my nose tickles because the snot is solidifying. But the light is soft and the roof above is sound. I really am so lucky and rarely allow myself to know it.
