This has been a good week and the weekend is still full of fun and possibilities,
On Sunday: I attempted to get some photos of the "under the sea" tent in Julia's room,
but wound up being captivated by the sun flare instead.
This was my favorite shot because the sun flare filled the frame.
On Monday: I attempted to embrace winter by creating a centerpiece out of the dried branches
that I found in the yard.
In the right light, it looks gorgeous,
but most of the day, it just looks like a bunch of sticks in a vase.
On Tuesday it warmed up to a balmy 40 degrees.
It felt wonderful and we made the most of it by going for a bit of a walk
where I found this messy little cattail.
Wednesday was a snow day!
there was no snow!
All day long all it did was rain and I wondered why on earth they canceled school for a little rain.
But... at exactly 2:15 (just when the high school students would be heading home)
it began to sleet like you've never seen sleet before.
Imagine one of the worst rains you've ever seen and replace the rain drops with those little sleet pellets. We had a couple of inches on the ground in a matter of minutes.
Soon after that, the snow began and it was almost as fast and as furious as the sleet.
Not many hours and eight inches of snow later...
We finally got our winter wonderland.
So, on Thursday we had yet another snow day, but this time it was legit!
(I kind of have a thing about posting a picture twice in my blog.
I really don't like to do it.
Don't know why exactly, it just bugs me,
but it's hard to avoid when I'm doing these 365 wrap ups each week.
However, doing the collages like I have been has made it "okay" for me.
Somehow, if they're smaller and grouped with a bunch of other pictures
it's easier for me to overlook the fact that I've already posted the picture.
Anyhow... I knew that this photo might be my only chance to find something robins egg blue for the week
And I knew that I wouldn't be home on Saturday and wouldn't have access to my photos in order to make a collage.... so fine!
I'm reposting this one.)
Friday we drove miles and miles through lots of snow to get to see those little toes.
I have great plans to take pictures of more than just her toes, but that's your sneak peek for now.
