Sleet came during the night and packed down the snow. When I woke it wasn't quite as pretty as when I went to bed.
Still, it is lovely. Those of you that live with snow like this all winter are probably shaking your heads at me. I'm a winter girl living in the south. Snowfalls like this are pretty rare around here. I can't help but be excited by it.
We are still getting snow. It died off for a while late this morning and in the last two hours has picked up pretty heavily. I did go out and shovel my walk for our mail carrier. (Although I'd rather they let the mail carriers stay home where it is safe. The mail can wait a day or two.)
I also took some time to have a little fun.
Fake flower stems for arms, acorns for eyes, a twig for mouth, carrot for nose and little paper glitter heart I'd made for a project that didn't get used. I didn't have a hat for her. I almost used my witches hat but I didn't want it to get messed up. So I wrapped her in a scarf that I never use.
I'm naming her Emmie, in honor of a new friend. :-)
I took another leap today, submitting a piece of art for a publication. I hope they like it. I'm pretty pleased with it.
Remember that soup I mentioned the other day? Well...it is delicious!
I'm off to cuddle with the kitty and watch the snow fall.
How are you staying happy today?
