New century

JANUARY 1, 2000

At the cabin. It's snowing. The dogs - Dexter & Violet - pulled us in the sled.
Played football until Isabelle's boot filled with snow and we came in.
Van Morrison's 'Astral Weeks' is playing.
Now Isabelle is acting out a drawing: "Daddy mouse, where are you?"
Erica is reclining on the couch with a book.
Eden won scrabble with 'fatigue', using her remaining six tiles.

It's the first day of a new century. So far, so good.
