It was still a good day. We went for a walk in the woods. A very short one, where we turned around at the second fork in the path and Moira insisted on taking off her gloves and then was angry that it was so cold.
But we both got to stop and listen to the birds and airplanes and crunchy frozen leaves. We got to look at the ice forming in the moss and around the mushrooms. We got to hold branches and lichen. We got to laugh and wonder at the world.
We spent half of today fighting against each other. Eat/don't eat. Upside down/right side up. Sing/don't sing. And yet, this is a day I will remember for a long time. It was magic.
On a side note, I have ordered pictures recently no less then 8 times, because I keep forgetting things, or miscalculating the number we need. But I want to order a copy of this one. It is far and away my favorite picture right now.
