the snowy weather returned after a mushy January thaw,
leaving an inviting layer of white over
PERFECT for a little lawlessness.
the downhills were exhilarating, and the back-up-the-hills were grounding.
not only is it lunar new year,
and celebration of our friend John's birthday,
but also serves as the anniversary of our hard working wooden toboggan.
it was gifted to us, by John, 4 years ago.
I don't know how many years of service it provided to his family before then...
but we have certainly put it to good use!
cheers to John,
to more adventures at the arboretum
and to the year of the cockerel!
