One of the things I've been inspired to do this winter is to submit an essay about my experiences with Ramses and Agnes to the Globe & Mail's Facts & Arguments section. I wrote it at the end of January and hit submit on the email to the editor with fingers crossed that my little story about sheep might be amusing enough to be accepted. A few weeks later, I got a reply and as of now, my essay's been published!
As you can imagine, I'm pretty excited about this. And have been shamelessly self-promoting as a result ;P I just had a lot of fun writing the piece and thinking about all the great things about having Ramses and Agnes around, that it was just such a thrill to be accepted. Definitely a good energy boost for a rather lackluster 'winter' so far. There hasn't been enough snow for any snow shoeing yet this year :(
