The sun rose this morning on a winter wonderland here. Three inches of snow lay glistening on the ground and more continued to fall throughout the morning.
My inner child was jumping for joy.
So after lunch I pulled on layers of clothing (“I CAN’T MOVE MY ARMS NOW!!!”), grabbed my sled (Yes, I am an adult who owns a sled. Don’t judge.), and drove to the sledding hill at Ohiopyle State Park. Apparently nobody else nearby had the time or inclination to go sledding. Go figure. So I had the fresh snow and hill to myself. This later proved to be a good thing.
This is the hill, looking up from the bottom.
I trudged up the hill, and….
Apparently it’s difficult to steer in general, but holding one’s cell phone makes things much more challenging.
Sans video, I made it a few times without wiping out, but certainly had fun in the process. Just an hour or so playing around was enough. I came home wet, cold, and content.
Wishing you childlike wonder, simple joys, and laughter.
