I love the country. I really do. I don't love it when our neighbors burn plastic in their outdoor furnace but that is for another time. I do love the abundance of activities that can be done outside. I was feeling as though we kind of suck at this country living stuff. We don't own a snowmobile, ATV, above ground pool or cross country skis. In fact, we don't have much equipment at all. Some day...Some day we will be 'living the dream', or my dream anyway.
For now we must appreciate and feel blessed to have neighbors that offer the use of THEIR gigantic ice rink created in their yard. Have I mentioned that it was gigantic? Pretty cool.
So...I guess if the energy/time/money to do something like this for our kids is not here yet we can appreciate being surrounded by those who can. So for today...this was our rink...our life and it was a great life....IS a great life.
