The neighborhood we live in is full of fantastic neighbors. Living near these folks makes me actually reconsider my dream of a bit of land some day. Sure we all live squished up next to each other like sardines in a can but we all get along and we are surrounded by green space and trails aplenty. Truthfully I would like a place with some space some day but this is just great for right now. I was talking to one of the older gals in our neighborhood while we were out playing in the snow. She is a wealth of great ideas and I've gotten more than a few from her. She told us she used to make snow ice cream with her kiddos when they were young. We just had to give it a try. We scooped up some clean snow (Yes i know it's probably not really clean but please don't tell me about it. I just don't want to know) and stirred it up with apricot juice. That was it: instant sorbet! The kids were in heaven. Thanks Carol!
