Just as I suspected, the pond has begun to thaw already. It’s really lovely, even if the kiddos are seriously disappointed. Daniel had his ice skates all picked out and couldn’t understand why I wouldn’t buy them. Poor fellow.
On the bright side, the weather is wonderful and I’ve even had my bedroom window open for a little while. I love the fresh, brisk air. It’s a good day for sewing and dreaming up my 2010 garden.
