I would just like to share that while you all were shoveling your driveways, we spent our Saturday morning doing this:
And yes, I know that seasons are lovely, as is a white Christmas. And frankly, I’m not sure how I’m going to explain the concept of “Fall” to my son when there aren’t really … um … leaves that fall. That being said, this was the sort of perfect-temperature sunny day when the whole neighborhood was out with dogs and children, birds were twittering, and all of nature rejoiced, including the coyote that crossed our path on one of the wilder streets, happily hunting wabbits. If you’re not going to enjoy living in Arizona in the middle of January, you’re just an ungrateful wretch.
