13 February 2014


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?

I'd be excited about getting snow, too! We don't even get rain where I live...

As a Brooklynite, I am so tired of snow. We have had 53 inches so far this year and it is not over yet. More snow coming tomorrow. It is beautiful to watch falling, but not so beautiful the next day. Here in the city it becomes a dirty, icy mess.

Even though we are absolutely loaded with snow I still see the magic/beauty in it.

that was such a piece of snow-fun. We have a lot of snow right now, but we had freezing rain that has left the snow frozen and beautiful, but it's not a common sight. that's a good thing because often when we get rain after snow we lose electricity and warmth. Looks pretty though.
