Cosmic Convergence

Today was one of those days when all the elements came together for a perfect afternoon.

2 inches of fresh, wet, packing snow.
Mild temperatures just around freezing.
No wind or other weather issues.
Mid afternoon daylight.
A freshly napped toddler.
2 energetic parents.
A clean muck-bucket and somewhat clean flowerpot.
A few shovels.
A make-your-own snowman kit.
Mommy's hat and scarf.

Add in a little bit of sledding down the "hill" (the raised earth around the roots of the big black walnut tree - maybe 2 feet, tops...) and some driveway shoveling, and it was a great time.

Until it had to end...
...first by us having to go in and get warm and dry
...and then by the rains coming - I wonder how our snowpeople will look by morning? We forgot to give them umbrellas. Who knew???
