  5. Love the poem - a tumble of words, just like your day was a tumble of doing. My 'days off' are the same.

  7. I always love, love, love your poems. In this one, I especially appreciated the first and last lines, as well as the snow intermixed. You captured it well, and it was easy to connect to.

  8. Such fun, watching your poem move through the day, Michelle. And I love that the girls are learning to skate. We lived on a lake when the kids were young, and my son was skating well by the time we moved. Just have to get them moving!

  13. Love this snapshot of your day, especially the snuggling and napping, and the poetic way you showed us the snowfall! Swimming lessons do lead to sound sleep and shhh at the end of a busy day.

  14. Love how you showed the full busy-ness of a "day off", Michelle! The "snow fall" was my favorite! Sounds like you had a wonderful day, even though it was busy. Sometimes, those snow days are the gifts we need to live the rest of our lives outside of school!
