My daughter's friend arrived promptly at 8, pulling her sled behind her, and the two of them set off for school. Nothing makes the "morning commute" more entertaining than being pulled along by your friend with nothing but laughter and the crunching of boots on the snow ringing in your ears. We live at the top of a "hill" of which they took full advantage. What a way to start the day! I am almost jealous I have to be a grown-up.
The cat refuses to go outside, which is understandable considering what a softee she has become. I think I may scrape up all that is on our deck to make a snow man. Or leave it as it is and make a snow angel. That fresh patch of smooth white is coaxing me to come out and play.
I love how the ground is brighter than the sky. It makes the world seem topsy-turvy....
And do you see that? Right there on the pond? Tracks of some animal! My guess is it's either: a cat, a fox, or one very cold duck. Brrrrr.
I love how the water and sky are nearly the same shade of gray. The only thing that separates the two is a line of white, made by a snow-covered dike. Don't forget you can click on the pictures to see a larger view!
