From the sublime to the ridiculous

Robins were made for winter and this little beauty really made us smile.
 So did this fella, though not for the same reason. Some might say living on a narrow boat was incomprehensible, obviously not us. But I’ll never fathom why anyone would want to kayak through frozen water just for fun. It took him about an hour to break through about half a mile of ice between the two bridges then he went back and forth several times.

Now the other way to make us smile on days like this is hearty homemade soup.
