It's cold here. The kids came back in after one trip down the hill. It reminds me of how cold I used to get when I was young and actually had to go outside. This picture isn't that different from the suburbs I grew up in. Fewer trees, but the same cul-de-sacs and fifties ramblers, a mazelike pattern that would look good on wallpaper. Now I live in an old city neighborhood with old trees and two lakes.
