What a Wonderful Day


Friday was not a very good day. I still wasn’t feeling well and after work I took things easy and went to bed early again. I wanted to be well-rested for a very fun day today (well, now yesterday). My goal was to go outside and enjoy a nice winter day.

What a great winter day it was. The sun was shining and the temps were in the low 30s. My husband was busy shoveling snow off of the roof and my son and I worked on a snow fort. There was a pile of snow just waiting to be dug into.

We both ended up giving up about three feet into it, because a brief thaw during the winter left a layer of ice that was difficult to dig into. So my son grabbed his sled and had some fun sledding down the pile. Our dog also joined in on the fun.

We even fit in a nap and after the sun went down we played some games together.

It was a very wonderful day 🙂

    Isn’t it wonderful when you can just focus on the kids and enjoy the day/moment?? We all need to make sure we do this a lot. I love doing those kinds of things, but we don’t have snow to shovel in South Texas….although sometimes we could shovel the humidity! LOL

    Its amazing how the simple days are often the best ones? A fun day out in the snow can be more fun than spending a mountain of money on stuff. I bed your son had a blast!

    What an unexpected but lovely post. Here I was looking for debt-related stuff and I find your musing on the beauty of a winter’s day. I live in snow-less Southern California, but I grew up in Detroit, so I both miss and appreciate the winter season (believe it or not :-). A nice diversion, indeed, from my financial woes.

So, what do you think ?
