Snow days and Mochi ice cream recipe.

"Snow was falling, so much like stars filling the dark trees that one could easily imagine its reason for being was nothing more than prettiness.”  ―  Mary Oliver Today the sun is finally out. --It's been out the last few days, but it has been staying hidden behind the clouds.
