I know you are all getting tired of snow photos but indulge me a bit longer. We got out for a bit last evening and walking up the driveway our house looked so warm in all the frosty weather I had to post a pic.This morning the sun is finally shining. This is the fourth day off school this week! We finally managed to dig the cars out yesterday afternoon. My son's girlfriend has been snowed in with us since Monday night. We were all out with shovels and kitty litter trying to push her car out of the spot she was stuck in. Hilarious! She finally got to go home last evening but called to say travel was still not so good.
Today the ice is really glistening. I am going to take a walk later with fresh camera batteries. ( I hear you groaning) Just like spring, this beauty is so fleeting I feel the need to capture it. To get a better feel of the icy majesty don't forget to click on the pics to enlarge them. (I always forget this). I haven't been idle while snowed in although I haven't accomplished what needs to be done either. I made another bottle a la' City Farmer for Sadie's art teacher. (I'll tell you why in the next post, Big News) The quote at the bottom from Hans Hofmann says "A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops."
I have read two Carol O'Connell books "Find Me" and "Winter House" and am beginning "Bone by Bone" thanks to one of you sweet bloggers out here who posted about it. I cannot remember who (senior moment, and I don't mean high school!) If it was you please comment so I can add a link. I also read "Ghost Radio" by Leapoldo Gout but it was lost on me, started out Ok but...
I am an avid reader but just so you don't think I've been sitting on my considerable A** I have been reading while on the treadmill for an hour a day! I am going to stick with the program because my son is signing us up for a fun run. (Thank goodness it's not until October.) It is sponsored by a local rock station, WEBN. It is called the "Run Like Hell" and takes place in a graveyard. That's my kinda run!
I'm off to capture some icicles with my camera (stop groaning, spring will be here soon enough).
Have a glacial Friday, P.
O.K. I am editing this post to say that I got hooked on Carol O'Connell this past week because of Bella Shabby's post about the new book Bone by Bone. I started reading it on the treadmill this morning and I don't think I'll be able to stop 'til I finish. (Reading not walking, I can stop that anytime.) Thanks for the reading suggestion.
