During our holiday, we spent a few days in a rented cottage near the mountain. I was there with a handful of my family, and had the pleasure of enjoying some of those holiday traditions that really only occur when you are all completely out of your comfort zones.
Reminiscent of school holidays, where structure and routine disappear and you have a bunch of unscheduled time on your hands. We found a puzzle in one of the cupboards. Someone started it, and over the course of the weekend, every family member contributed their skills. Even the little guys. How tolerant of us.
It's easy to forget the simple pleasure that can be found when completing a meaningless activity like this. And really, not so meaningless if you account for the conversations, giggles, and even faux arguments that ensue. *Bonding*.
