Homemade Sled, On the Cheap

On his way home from work yesterday, before the snow started falling, Jamey stopped a thrift store and bought two pairs of old skis for $1 a pair.  He and the girls used scrap wood to fashion sleds after dinner, as the snow began to fall.  Their test run last night was successful but right now the snow is too deep and fluffy to make them go.  They are waiting patiently to be run again.

Today is and will be full of shoveling, making houses in the snow (it's deep enough already to dig out paths and rooms), hot chocolate, board games with neighbor children, and grilled cheese and tomato soup for lunch.  I love snow.  We have drifts of three feet and a good foot and a half everywhere else.  And the fact that it's still falling, makes me one happy girl.

Just a friendly reminder, if you know me personally please try to refrain from using my name. There are those who may try to locate me, break into my pantry and steal my pickled beets. Thanks:-).
