What fun we had today! Haven’t heard Elihu giggle and laugh like that in ages. And the best packing snow I remember in a long time… yay! Here’s a mini album of our afternoon outdoors. (The way I’m making such a big deal about it you’d think we don’t play outdoors much. Yes, sadly, that’s actually true. !) I’ve included a few extra shots in order to give folks a more complete vision of our property. In an unintentional nod to ‘Where’s Waldo?’ our goose Maximus makes a cameo in more than a few shots.

a closer look
Elihu, fittingly, is using a goose quill in place of a plastic stylus with his DS
the sledding hill is just beyond the pine trees to the SE
here’s our grand Beech tree
and here’s the king of the hill
and who’s this?
he can’t be all bad, he’s wearing red sunglasses and an aviator’s cap
the run has been made, now to enjoy
picking up speed
and it’s a fine finish just shy of the pricker bushes!
it’s a long, long walk back up
the most enjoyable exercise I’ve had in years
going in now
coming around the South side of the house

around the corner now on the West side of the house
on the front porch (facing North now), eating snow

We love our little corner of Greenfield. And it’s just so pretty in the snow.
