Snow days are fun

We’ve been getting a lot of wet, heavy snow over the last day, and more is on the way. I even got my car stuck in the driveway on top of the snow. /sigh

I decided to take a day off to spend with NatureBoy during his winter vacation. We had a quick morning errand, and had to dig out my car. This gave us an opportunity to exchange volleys of snowballs.

Much of the rest of the day was spent playing BattleLore, which we hadn’t played in a long time. We played three games, and NatureBoy won all of them.

It’s a fun combination of strategy board game and miniatures.

I also roasted a chicken with carrots, leeks and turnips in my dutch oven. It was very moist and flavorful. Have I mentioned that I love cooking with my dutch oven?

    Hi Geoff,

    My son also loves to play BattleLore. When I have the time I always make sure to play with him so he stays off the video games. ha

    Best,

    Gary

      Yeah. It’s actually been a while since we played a boardgame. Last game was either Ticket to Ride or Small World. Either way, I’m sure he beat the pants off me, fair and square. He’s got a better mind for strategy than I.
