Just got in from a walk with the little boy next door. He told me he’d written to Santa, but that he hadn’t heard back yet. I asked what he told Santa, and he said that he told Santa he’d like to visit the North Pole. We talked about what it was probably like—snow as deep as 10 inches, says the boy, with lots of Christmas trees around, all decorated.
Then we looked at ice patterns on the streets and sidewalks and found some icicles to take home and put in our freezers. I hope I always live near little kids who will help me enjoy the fun things in life.
