But it is far too cold to enjoy the view for long. It will be nice in the spring and summer when it's warm enough to be able to sit for an hour and watch the sun set (perfectly framed by the large window).
The perfect remedy for today's activities was a hot shower and delicious dinner. Using my family's homegrown grassfed beef, my friends and I made meatballs (ground beef, sauteed onions, eggs, oatmeal, salt and nutmeg), with boiled potatoes and cream gravy, and broccoli on the side. Nothing beats a hearty meal made with beef this good. Yes, I think I'll take a day of fort-building and meatball-eating over a college party any day!
