river date

there is a river by our house that will soon be frozen,
the other day we poured warm red wine into old mugs

and walked down the banks to watch it flow

/another fun thing is the outdoor chess tables with built in boards, you just need to bring the pieces. (i've never won once and we've been playing together for 4 years):).

ps. i grew up on this river (my parent's house backs onto it), but it still surprises me each year when it freezes: what was moving is turned still.
