smile
For real, you ask?

Yep! Here he is again.

Now that's what I call a snowman.
And nature made him!
Just the way the rocks are and the wind has blown.


Also, due to special request, here is a photo of me all "rosy cheeked and healthy out there in the cold air".


And this is what I was looking at after I got the camera out of my face.
Yes, it is that grey. So grey.
Grey grey.
But being outside helps absolutely.
When I'm inside
(which is more than I care to admit)
on days like these
(which is most days these days)
it is extra, extra grey.
Grey².

indigo
The good thing about a grey day
is that when the sun sets
(about 3:30 pm these days)
the sky goes all indigo-y
and in turn so does the snow.
Phew.
Reprieve.

Phooey to grey days.

Looks like you've been getting out a fair amount, still, judging from all the photos. Wish I could say the same--I feel so guilty about how many days I only set foot out the door to walk to the van and back--exit building, shuffle shuffle, enter van. Exit van, shuffle shuffle, enter building. Like that.

Scrapnqueen, can we have that again? Shuffle shuffle.

Yes, there is an awful lot of snow in your photos Colleen. I adore the one of you, you are rosy cheeked and healthy and it's great to see a picture of you! Do you close your eyes and listen to the silence? Have you ever wondered why it's so quiet when there is a lot of snow? I only found out recently it's because snow absorbs sound.

And THAT, my friends, was for free.

Yup, little nuggets of science and wisdom coming your way.

Love nature's snowman! Way cuter than any man-made snowman.

Seeing that picture of you out in the snow made me wish I was there with you; making snow angels, having a snowball fight, just being silly.

Grey is no good after too much of it. That's why I always make frequent trips to my local tanning establishment during the grey days of winter. :)
