A Book By the Fire on a Long Snowy Weekend

I’m making my way through Richard Rhodes’ charming biography of E. O. Wilson, Scientist today. It is the middle of a long holiday weekend. Everyone is home. The snow predicted for the weekend has started. There is no reason to go out to the store or run errands. I’ve got a fire in the fireplace and am sitting in front of it on the couch with my book in my hand.

There is something delightfully comforting in all of this. It is the middle of a long weekend, so although today is Sunday, we don’t have work tomorrow and the kids don’t have school. We’ve got dinner cooking in the slow-cooker. I can feel the warmth of the fire from where I sit, even as I can see the snow falling. I’ve still got half of the book to finish before the day is out. It is wonderful, and yet another reason why I love living in a place that has four seasons.
