We knew the cold front had arrived before our toes touched the floor.
It had settled in our sinuses.
Today was a good day for wiping noses,
burrowing in blankets,
holding babies close,
over-replenishing and cozying up with a stack of library books,
tucking into steaming bowls of homemade soup with muffins,
and sneaking peeks at the powdered sugar perfection being dusted outside our windows.
