i always have a tickle of excitement during these quasi-emergencies....when life as we know it shifts to something a little more basic. more human really. tom tells me not to cook everything we have in the house. it's hard for me not to. but i didn't boil the whole dozen, just 6 of them. and only one bag of perogies. i am a person that goes all in. with pretty much everything i love, i love it all the way. so, tom is sometimes that necessary voice of moderation.
so the house is warm and sweet with the smells of food. and the world i know is covered in a coat of ice and it keeps falling from the sky in it's own pretty way, pretending it's a song instead of a storm.
