If the snow won’t come to you…

… then get in the car and go to the snow.

It was just a half hour drive to the Dublin mountains (hills for anyone else on the planet).
The snow was there. The hesitant drivers who should never be allowed near a road with 1 inch of snow were there.
The kids complained that it was bitterly cold (it was).
But they had fun.
Especially when I sank to my knees in snow and ice and icy cold wet turf.

This morning I had a happy surprise. So near yet so far. But more about that weird feeling of being-half-a-grand-richer-and-yet-feeling-poor sometime soon.

I haven’t quite digested it yet.

Gap

Not the pricey garment place.
Sally’s gap.
On a very full day.
Full of athletics, cat feeding, birthday partying, blackberries gorging, Sally Gapping, cat retrieving, Italian cooking, pinot noir sampling, knee capping, pain killing.
