hike to the frozen lake/cold weather potluck/games
dear friends-- one day in the last Millennium, there was a big first snow, and our children were excited and spent a long time getting themselves into snow clothes, and gathering snow toys, and finally, after much preparation, they ventured out into the yard. they were back in the house again within 15 minutes, and i asked our older daughter, "girls, why are you in so soon?" she replied, "we fought with winter, and winter won." that's how i'm feeling about this time in the winter of 2018--but i'm not just going to roll over and play dead, so i invite you to a winter event with a little outdoor adventure, and a lot of indoor comfort. we will take a short hike to the frozen lake--if it's still frozen, visit the amazing Derby Ditch ice bridge--if it hasn't melted, then head back to my house. once there, we will have a winter comfort food potluck. bring a hearty winter dish to warm us up-- or just bring whatever contribution you want to a potluck lunch. i had originally planned to do a soup cookoff--but i think a critical mass for that sort of event is probably at least 15-20 people, and it looks like we won't have that today, so i'll save it for another day. after that, we will enjoy our lunch, hang out and play some games, and help each other drive the winter blues and blahs away. hope to see you there, Rick more details and parking directions will follow.
