Sliding Around in the Snow: Sunday Afternoon Snow

Sunday Afternoon Snow

Patricia, 77

On a lazy Sunday afternoon in the winter, after a really good snow, my sister Judy and I dressed in what seemed like a zillion layers of clothes and went out to explore the beautiful shimmering world, jumping in drifts and sliding down the clay bank in the side yard.  Alma would sometimes escape her boring surroundings and join us.  

One Sunday I recall we went in the side yard between the rectory and the school.  We made a really big circle in the snow with a path through the middle.  Alma taught us the game "Run, Fox, Run."  The object was to catch the fox.  We took turns being the fox. What fun we had.
