Anyway, I decided since I was going to go out and play in the snow, I might as well get seriously snow-clad and cold. I did...and I had fun at it--until my snow-packed ankles started to hurt. Every time I'd step into the snow, it pushed my pant legs up and thereby dumped a new load into the top of my boots (which by the way kept my toes warm the whole time.)
I really wanted to make snow-balls...but like I said the snow wasn't right. Now yesterday on the other hand--as it started to melt--I made a couple of real nice ones (barehanded)...but anyway. The snow is melting very fast, so I'm glad we went and goofed around the other day. :)
Yesterday I got a surprise--no...two surprises in the mail...the first came in a big box all by itself and the second came in a smaller box with two other books. The smaller gift was Guns of Thunder by Douglas Bond (the first of the Faith and Freedom Trilogy--which follows up on the Crown and Kirk Trilogy. Ducan's War is the first of that one...)
The second gift was something I had been told I would get for my birthday...then for Christmas...and believe it or not, I had actually forgotten about it. That's right...it was my new boots! And they are red!!
Aren't they pretty??
I love 'em!
