I almost lost my grip and fell! Once I had a good hold of the tree again, I looked down.
"What are you doing up in the tree?" she called.
"Climbing it!" I laughed. "I like doing things like this."
"That is okay. I like it too."
"Great!" I climbed down carefully.
"I felt like to have some fun."
"Oh, okay. That's the same reason I came out."
We started walking up the path together.
"That is a good idea! I saw it is dry earlier, so it is a good place to go."
"I love all things outside," Anna sighed, in a day-dreaming sort of tone.
She turned around, then said, "Oh, look! The flowers are starting to come out!"
"Yay! That means it's spring!" I smiled, looking at the pretty little purple buds behind us.
"Ow!" said Anna, suddenly.
"What is it?"
She laughed at herself as she carefully pulled a dry bramble stalk off her arm.
"This is all thorny!" she said.
As I turned to look at the plant, something tugged at my hair. I squeaked, and then realized what it was. The dry bush behind me was full of thorns, too!
"My hair is caught in this bush!" I said, half-laughing.
"Oh! Let me help you." Anna reached over and got my hair off the bush.
"Let's get up."
"Yes, let's," Anna said quickly.
"Shall we go inside now?" she asked.
"That's probably a good idea!" I laughed. "This is about the only dry place to sit down."
"Oh, it's so warm!" I said.
"Yes!" said Anna, as we took off our shoes.
"Shall we make some hot chocolate?" Anna asked.
I smiled widely at that idea!:)
I had lots of fun, but I think I've had my taste of winter for the year!;)
