Spring is coming

Spring is coming

Spring is on its way! It’s hard to believe, isn’t it? March already! And April is quickly on its way. Spring is coming, and there’s no way to stop it. Well, I’m sure we could think of a way to stop it, but then where would we be? Still in winter, and a lot of people don’t seem to like winter all that much (I rather enjoy it, really). But with winter almost over, think of all the winter activities that we missed this year (Or at least that I missed, anyway); skiing (And snowboarding too, if that’s your bag), sledding, skating, building snowforts (we built one, but that’s singular, we needed at least one more so that we could have snow fights and snow siege. Nothing beats siege!), getting our tongues stuck to things (Don’t tell me that never happens to you, I get my tongue stuck to ice all the time, I’m not denying it), and most importantly of all, making snowmen. I don’t think I’ve made a snowman in years, and I really miss doing it.

Honestly, I’m still hoping that we get one good snow before spring comes. Then we’ll be able to get some of the things that we missed done, especially going sledding. That’s the one thing I miss the most. Nothing beats going sledding on a sunny winter day. What could be better? You get to bundle up in tonnes of layers of clothes (That makes it nice and padded when you hit the tree), and wear a silly hat. No matter how much of a goof you look like while wearing a snowsuit it’s guaranteed there’s at least 2 other people who look just as bad or worse than you. And it’s just an excuse to wear the most ridiculous hat you can possibly find, in fact I think it’s a requirement.

Climbing to the top of the hill. It builds anticipation. And it’s usually hard too, if you’ve got a good hill anyways. It’s so satisfying to make it to the top. And look how far you can see! And then you get to slide down. The rush of snow and ice beneath you, the wind on your face. Lets out a cry of joy! Exhilarating! But, you’ll eventually come to a stop. And look how far you’ve gone! Ultimately, someone will try and go farther than you, but isn’t that the whole idea? And back to the top we’ll go.

I didn’t get to go sledding this year. I’m a bit sad because of it. But I hear it may snow again soon, which I’m looking forward to. And it means that we’ll get to have Sarah come sledding, and perhaps Tabi as well. The more the merrier! And afterwards comes the best part. Hot chocolate. Well, I’ll be having Milo, but you get the idea. I don’t think there’s anything better you can do during the winter. At least nothing better that I’ve ever done. so I say let it snow! Just don’t start singing about it. Haha. Catch you next time!

I lost The Game

You Lose The Game

Well, it’s official. I just lost the game. I can’t say I’m not surprised, but it was a little unexpected really. Although, I will say it’s a rather fun game to play, and quite challenging. I think we should all try and play, really. C’mon, give it a go! Here, I’ll even give you the rules;

RULE 1: You are playing The Game.
RULE 2: Whenever you think about The Game, you lose.
RULE 3: Loss must be announced.

See, it’s easy to play. Now lets all go out and try to play together!

And if anyone is wondering, I just lost the game. Again. But I’m going for another round. Catch you next time!
