The Awesome Day began with 8 inches of snow and a jaunt through the yard with my 11 year old Black and Tan Coonhound, Ferd .
As usual, the barn shines in its contrast from the snowy-gray Grindstone Mountain.
We had to make our own sled run: How?
Step 1: Find the fall line and “path of least resistance” usually by sledding yourself.
Step 2: Have a person sit on the sled and drag that person to make a slick run.
Step 3: Keep trying to use the same run to over and over. After several runs, you can see and feel the track.
After sledding, Ammon and Carter had school: Math, Social Studies, and Handwriting. When lunch was over, Carter, Ammon, & Daddy S went up on the base of Grindstone Mountain while I cut small trees with the chain saw and made sure our tractor was running in the freezing weather.
We finished the day with an awesome Dinner: Baked Honey Ham, Creamed Corn, Baked Beans, Stuffing, and Cranberry Sauce.
