thursday

today was much more sensible in terms of temperature.  the frost clung to the trees, but it gave up its mid-air suspension, also, it seems, its hold on noses and mittens and spider webs (though perhaps i didn't look closely enough to know for sure about that last one.  they did not, however, stand out to me today, like they did yesterday).  

from inside the house this morning.  already the day was clearer... 


greg and i both deemed the morning 'picturesque,' taking our own photos capturing the snow-covered landscape.  here are his, taken on his run to work...





and mine, after dropping the guys off at school...





 and in the afternoon, when we came home, henry and i did some sledding in the backyard...




i pulled him...


and then he pulled me... kind of.


later they all acted like monkeys...


what a wonderful thursday, winter and all.

wow, that must be a cold bike ride, for the person who pedals and the ones that must just sit.

laughed at an earlier post describing trying to get henry to sit down in the burley, then sympathized and un-laughed, because of how hard it is to get grace into her car seat much of the time. rice cakes worked for a while.

no wonder you hope for more mild weather! we in this driving culture, with actual heat in our cars, are perhaps soft. i rode my bike 6 minutes to school today, in maybe 20 degree weather, and complained about how hard it was. i will not complain any more. and when my kids fling their mittens and hats aside on the way to the car, i will not mind as much, knowing that i will turn on the heat soon.

the winter is beautiful though, yes?
