A Friday in Lent
The snow is falling lazily outside. Tortilla soup is simmering in the crock pot. The dog is asking for a walk. And I am feeling very Lent-y on this day off of mine. I'm thinking of new life... of buds and sun and not having to bundle up every time I go outside. I want to wear shorts and t-shirts and sunglasses. I'm ready for Alleluias and empty tombs... all the good things that come at the end of these forty days. I'm ready for spring. But for now I don my purple parka and snow boots to take Nicky for a walk and enjoy this season of waiting.
