An unexpected chance for a visit from friends turned our afternoon from regular to fun! We got outside into the glorious sunshine, wrapped up against the chill wind and basked in the beauty of it all. From small and inquisitive to large and fluffy, we all found reason to rejoice in the crisp white world around us.
The snow was fluffy, the wind sharp and the sun bright. We could have stayed out for twice as long but I think my toes would have succumbed to frostbite; almost worth it to watch the kids revel in the fun of the snow with their friends. We came inside refreshed, cleaned out and satisfied. Tomorrow we are set for a snowy afternoon, perhaps the last big fall of the season? Who knows. But we enjoyed our freedom while we could and look forward to more of the same another day.
