A day well spent

I missed out le Petit’s first sledding experience of the year last week because I was ensconced at the public library reading about place and consumption.

So it was great to be able to go out today to a local park, just a walk away from our house, with a number of slopes that were really well suited for our crazy carpet. At first we were the only ones, but within an hour, there were 10 or so teenagers and later a few younger kids all out doing the same thing: enjoying sliding down the soft white snow on a perfect winter’s day.

Today fulfilled the meaning of winter holiday for me.
