Carved In Snow
This last week when we finally got the snow storm that Mrs. Mac has been wishing on us for the last two months, I thought I had better go out and make that snow ball that I have been promising her.
THE snowball that I have been planning to throw at her!
No such luck though.
The snow was dry and fluffy, and way too dry.
It was just the same texture as the snow that used to fall in my beloved Manitoba.
It was a rare snowball or snowman that we could make THERE!
Well with a forgiving spirit, I decided that what I would do for Mrs. Mac was to carve her name on the snow laden back yard of the palace and here in the first picture, you can see it.
One thing about being at my client's place, there are no neighbors... Nobody around to see a crazy white haired lady playing in the snow!
Playing in the snow with no boots on!
Only the squirrels, chipmunks and birds could see and they are quite used to me by now!
Besides I had told them ahead of time, that if they let out the secret, there would be NO MORE seeds, and peanuts for THEM!!
So Mrs. Mac, you can stop singing that song that you love so much, "Let It Snow, Let it Snow"!!
Your wish has been granted.
Tomorrow morning when I go to the palace, I am going to bring the pillow that my good Kentucky friend, Morgan Denise[Splash of Color] sent to me last year, a pillow that says, "Let it Melt"!!
I have added some other photos that I took and really even though it is very cold now, winter does make a lovely scene.
These pictures are what as Saija[Through a Glass Darkly] would say have surely been painted by God!
