We went to visit our neighbour's orchard on Saturday afternoon as he hosted a sliding party as a community event.
It was a gorgeous sunny January day and even though the temperature was -13C, if you were dressed warmly it was bearable. There was no wind, thankfully. A perfect afternoon.
Some of the sledders walking over to the hill.
People waiting to go down the hill. I didn't join them. I was there to take photos and get some fresh air in the sunshine as I hadn't been out anywhere other than the grocery store on New Year's Eve and our friend's yesterday as it was just. too. cold!
When you were done and came back up the hill on the wagon, you could walk up to the barn, get warm by the fire and enjoy hot chocolate, apple cider and hot dogs.
A nice hot fire of apple wood.

I'm so glad we got outdoors to enjoy the sunshine on this cold January day.
I'm joining Karen at "My Little Home and Garden" for Sunlit Sunday.
Karen runs this meme every year to bring a little sunshine into our long winter months from January to March. If you'd like to join in just go to her link above for her instructions. I hope you will either join in or just pop over and visit the other participants.
I hope you're enjoying the weekend.
You can get out and enjoy the sunshine even when it's well below freezing!
Thanks for stopping by and I'd like to welcome to my new followers.
