Doesn't our bench look cozy? It is a still day out, the silence only occasionally broken by large sheets of snow sliding off the roof - ker-thump! - to the ground.
Yesterday we went sledding. It was perfect - no wind, not too cold, lots of snow, and no sun to blind us on the way down. Today Safiya and Mr. S went again. On the way out I heard Safiya excitedly say to her favourite toy, who is a red stretchy plastic dragon named "Draggy" who has been dragged with her everywhere but apparently has never been sledding:
"Draggy, do you want to go out and see the world, Draggy?"
