Her parents had forgotten to empty the rain barrels on the east side of the house, so we went skating on the frozen ice formed in the barrel. I admit it's a little eerie skating on three-foot-deep-black ice (you can see the leaves on the bottom of the barrel), but we had a lot of fun.
We were very cold afterward, so we took a hot bath in water Elizabeth warmed up for us and are now munching on a few cranberries Basil snatched from the bag on the counter.
The pies smell lovely.
I hope everyone else had as nice a day!
