Yay for snow!

January 19

We had snow! Not a lot, but enough to count! Yay! The fourth graders at Hilltop School in Mendham were thrilled to see a couple of flakes drift down. Meanwhile, I've got my first full unscheduled day at home in what seems like six weeks-- don't know if it's precisely true. Andy took off for a day in the country, because he loves to drive and have a change of scenery.

Here’s an interesting factoid–that we all use the phrase “more honored in the breach than in the observance” wrong– we use it to refer to rules that are given lip service to, but that people usuall break. But it was used by Hamlet to mean the King’s rules were so bad they were better broken! See the note here: .
