No, I did not build this snowman, but it was huge and had a lovely grin. The sad thing is that some teens came by shortly after Jean took this photo and smashed it down. I was not thrilled.
There is a field on the outskirts of the village where everyone goes to toboggan when it snows, and there were loads of people there today.
The village centre is in a dip. All roads out of the centre are up hill, so early on, none of the cars could get traction up the hills.
The great thing about today was that everyone was out walking, heading for the field to toboggan. Snowball fights all over the place, old and young and everyone chatting and best of all, everyone SMILING! Lots of laughter echoing around. I knocked on the doors of a couple of elderly neighbours to check if they needed anything from the shops, and everyone was looking out for everyone else. This is the best thing about living in a village like this.
Pretty, isn't it?
So there you are. We have snow. There may be more, but it has been a lovely day for everyone, I think. I bumped in to Jean as I hobbled slowly past her road, and went in to her house to have some soup and toast. Perfect. Then I set off home. And all my neighbours were outside, and it is great. But i do believe I am seizing up. The walk took the place of physio, and I think I have had an equivalent work out!
Now I am heading for the coffee......
