  • The first day of this year, I packed lunch for the family in a back-pack, and went to the beach.
    The temperature had dropped rapidly the last couple of days, leaving the soaked ground frozen. The boy and the dog found it equally fascinating. None of them wanted to have lunch outside. They thought it was too cold.

    We went home and had picnic on the living room floor.
