GOD's my island hideaway, keeps danger far from the shore,
throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.

snow much fun!

today's weather: warm (a whopping 40F--that's ABOVE zero for a change), but windy.

this afternoon, bubba and i spent an hour and a half playing outside in the snow while cj was napping. i find it difficult to do much with our snow though. when i was a kid (in central wisconsin), we had the most wonderful sticky snows all winter long...snowmen, snow forts, snow balls were all easy to make. not so up here in the northern parts of minnesota. the top layer where the snow had begun to melt a little packs okay, but under that it's just powdery. like dry sand--only colder. it doesn't make very good snowmen, unless you're determined and don't mind them being a tad on the small side. i was determined this afternoon.

here's my snow art. i call it snow waltz. doesn't it look like this lovely couple could be dancing?

it's hard to get a good picture of snowmen. especially since these guys have a snow backdrop too. here's another photo. you can see how they're "dancing" in a little hollow i had dug out of the snow.

and here's bubba with his own snowman.


  1. Cute snowmen! I haven't built one this year. But I did make a big snow angel in the backyard a couple of weeks ago. We haven't had much snow recently, so it's still there.

    Somehow playing in the snow was more fun as a kid. I think it's because I had snow pants that kept my legs warm and dry (jeans just don't accomplish that). I know it was much easier to stand back up from making snow angels when I was little and had less distance to travel to get up :)

  2. i got myself snowpants at the end of last winter. yesterday was the first time i actually wore them. i'm just not too thrilled about playing outside in the snow now that i know i could stay inside and snuggle up with my knitting instead! lol!
