Storm Prepping III

“What’s that?” Piper asked, gazing over my shoulder at the computer screen.

“That’s Sandy,” I explained.  “She’s the big storm headed our way. That’s why you don’t have school today.”

“It looks like cotton candy. Yum.”

Go Climb a Tree

The cherry blossoms are in full bloom in our neighborhood.  They’re losing their petals fast, though, and shower us with pink snow on our walk to the park. Piper says they look like cotton candy trees. She’d like me to raise her up so she can lick one, but I won’t.  A girls got to learn to climb her own tree and claim what she wants. Sorry, Piper. I will cheer you on, though, and I promise to clean up your knees if you fall.
