Shh ...

Shh ... everyone's sleeping. It's cold outside, the furnace is humming a soft lullaby, can you hear it? The mountains are tucked in under a blanket of clouds this morning, so Abby and I crawled under our quilts and watched Shrek. The world may have been moving by busily on the other side of our front door, but inside, we were cozy, sleepy, wistful. 
The sound of metal spoons hitting the sides of ceramic tea mugs as they stir.
The smell of herb bread baking.
Goober's soft, rhythmic purring at the end of the bed.
Soft wool socks slipped over cold feet.
A tall stretch when I finally get up after the movie.
Today is a perfect Saturday.
