It has been below freezing here — for days. Yesterday, there was a sheet of ice INSIDE our famiy room window. My children were excited by the ice and its beauty. In a stroke of “Little House on the Prairie” genius, I handed them three magical thimbles (thanx, Julie! Great timing, eh?) and let them press designs into the ice.
They amused themselves for half an hour — enchanted by the ice crystals.
I drank loads of hot coffee and watched them, bundled up. I was not enchanted by the ice — not at all, my children and their endless imaginations however, enchanted me greatly.
