Looking Ahead

What do you do when a storm's a-comin? Hunker down, of course: lay in supplies and prepare for some time at home.

But, this unexpected, late (late, LATE) winter storm has re-calibrated my nesting instincts. Tonight I don't want to prepare soup, stew, or cocoa. In fact, I'm making ratatouille-- a warm reminder of sunny days with summer vegetables. And if school is called off tomorrow? I won't be playing in the snow; I'll busy myself starting seeds.

Oh, I'm ready for a break... it's just not quite the one we may have tomorrow.


  1. I hope you get your day off and are able to start many seedlings that will grow in the spring.

  2. I like your brave look towards Spring with what you are cooking and you will do if snow calls a day off.

  3. I'm with you! I won't be heading out to the store, but I think I will raid the fridge, freezer and garage to make a nice summer recipe. Good idea!

  4. This storm should miss us. A good thing since we already have to add days to the end of our school year.
