Snow Days and Sled Fails

Well…I jinxed myself. I shouldn’t have made a crack about the cold on Monday. Now, I have snow. It’s up to my shins and if there’s a drift my corgi, Freya, becomes submerged. I don’t dislike snow.

Here is the final part of the story… 6’ish… I wasn’t paying to much attention to time… Cold. Blissful cold. If youContinue reading “Return to the Rim”
