dismissing early from school for teacher planning day. walking in the rain. well, some of us scooting. cutting through the lonely park. lunching on toasted cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. cuddling up on the couch for a reading lesson during the little one's nap. (more about this tomorrow.) watching the end of "Chicken Little" while the dough rises. snacking on warm soft pretzels. with dip. still to come, dinner with good friends.
