Last Sunday morning (21st Jan.), we woke up to find a pure white world around the house - it was the first snow this year, and in this winter season. It had been really a mild, warm winter, but it seems the winter finally caught up with the passing of the season.
Amar shovelled snow, while I "fluffed around" (a favourite term of Amar's to tease me) trying in vain to make a snow man. Some kids in the neighborhood ran to our garden, aiming at using one of the trees in our front yard as a "fort" for throwing snow balls around (in Japanese, we literally call the game "snow ball battles").
I was smiling at these innocent kids, thinking that kids are the same everywhere, when I suddenly felt something hit me by back ... it was Amar's snow ball! Yes, I do already have a kid in our house, thank goodness ;-)
