After a day of skiing, though the kids were exhausted. Done. Ready to curl up and play Minecraft, and write THE book! and the weekend was just beginning. And it was so nice. We sat around eating thick crusty slices of hot olive bread toast with cheese and dipping chocolate into our steaming coffees. We laughed about learning to play Canasta. We watched Oscar nominated films and walked out on the frozen lake to see if the fish were biting underneath all of that ice.
OK, it was a little bleak. I didn't enjoy it that much when it started sleeting. But I did enjoy watching the boys have an adventure, sliding around, discovering trees eaten by beavers, beaver lodges, frozen swimming holes, and exploring under bridges and downed trees. And afterwards we were definitely ready to visit the bakery for more fresh bread and strawberry rhubarb pie.
