One of my favourite winter activities is to light a bonfire in the late afternoon. Toasting our fingers (and perhaps some marshmallows) in front of that radiant warmth. The kids usually go nuts throwing sticks into the fire, and after a while run away and invent their own little games. Country Boy and I enjoy a rare time to just sit and shoot the breeze. We talk about plans for the garden and house, and our future. Of course we never solve anything, but it is still good to just sit together and chat. A winters afternoon, on a long weekend. Perfectly spent.
