Go Play in the Snow!

We’re having a real winter for a change here in southern New England.

I keep trying to get my friends to get outside and play in the snow for a bit. They look at me like I have a screw loose. Why not though?

The novelty of living somewhere where you get a decent amount of snow has long since worn off. Having to literally shovel snow off your car to start the day will do that to you. As will having to clear off your driveway.

That doesn’t mean to say I don’t enjoy the snow, especially when I don’t have to be anywhere, and right now the only place I have to be is at home.

Taking time, even if it’s as little as five minutes, to go outside and play in the snow is a guaranteed way to lift my mood.

How about you? What do you do to stay connected to ‘childish’ pleasures?
