This past weekend, we had 2 bright sunny days which made me feel like spring is really in the air. But what greeted me this morning was this.
Looks like winter is not going anywhere.
After 5 months with this kind of weather, it is starting to wear me down. Don’t get me wrong. It is such a pretty sight. It’s nice when you don’t need to go anywhere, but it sucks when you have to (which is my case).
My son is now sick. I think it’s my fault. I must’ve overindulged him in too much snow. I did get what I wished for. We had a good amount of snow these past few days.
After seeing this much snow from my son’s bedroom window, it was only natural for him to want to go outside and play.
So last Friday, I took him out for a long walk in the woods.
It was -4C that day, but the cold did not seem to bother us. We were having fun! We crossed the woods to get to the other part of town. Everytime we find a little inclined space, we take advantage in sliding downhill on his sled.
By the time we got home, he was literally spent. He didn’t even wait to get to his room. He just crashed on the sofa.
This past weekend, we went skating with some friends. Because he is still too young to skate, we placed my son on a sled so he can still enjoy the ice with us. It was very cool. Unfortunately, that didn’t do him well. He got cold. And because he was also tired, getting sick was inevitable.
Now I am nursing him back to health. Hopefully, we can cut the “down time” so we can enjoy the snow all over again.
