Sunshine and temperatures just below zero enticed us to spend large chunks of our day outside today, a welcome development after far too many deeply cold and unfriendly days this winter. We strapped on our skis (cross-country) for a little downhill action behind the house and to play ball with Reggie.
Our youngest carefully created a small jump partway down the hill, inspired by previous winter fun on this same hill and by the Olympic events that we’ve been viewing in our downtime.
We even managed to get our teenager out for a few runs after he had put in a long shift at work.
Trying to make the fun last as long as possible, my husband grilled our supper outside on the barbecue – lamb chops, fries and onions, followed by s’mores, of course!
Wishing everyone fair weather, wherever you are – goodness knows everyone needs it.
