Honestly, I hesitated over the word fun in my blog title. Like lots of people (who aren’t kids) I’m kind of done with winter.
But we’ve got another snow day here in central Virginia.
And just as nature teased us with some thaw.
I decided not to wear my boots this day. Soaked my sneakers and socks. I was just a tad too optimistic.
But I have been finding some fun (I am, a kid at heart, I suppose).
A winter scene by Cold Fingers (aka me)
A walk at the mall. The frozen fountain was kind of awesome.
Finding a sunny spot to read.
I wish. This was me reading at the beach in 2013. #ThrowbackThursday
(I like to keep my fiction skills simmering.)
This cookie truffle has nothing to do with winter. I just like how it turned out.
And it’s kind of snowball-ish.
No caption necessary.
Me sledding last week.
In my own backyard.
What happens when a writer and an engineer are home for a snow day?
Check out the video!
What’s your favorite thing to do on a snow day? And if it’s summer where you are, tell me something warm. 🙂
“Winter lingered so long in the lap of Spring
that it occasioned a great deal of talk.”
Today is shiny and warm. YAY! I’m going out to soak up the sun. I promise I won’t take it all. 🙂
What are you grateful for today?
**Photos taken at Meadow Farm, the Virginia Aquarium, and my neighborhood. The last photo is NOT in fact an alien, but a dogwood bud encased in Polar Vortex ice (or what I imagine my fingers, toes, and nose to look like lately).
Anything you’re taking a closer look at lately? What are your thoughts on selfies?
Is it spring yet?
Okay, maybe not. But after historically cold temperatures for the last two weeks here in central Virginia (and six and 1/3 snow days that
shut down the city cancelled school), I got a tad excited when I saw the ice melting on the ponds at Byrd Park.
(probably not their scientific name)
…the stuff I brought home on my shoes.
Or, if there are TONS of birds, feel free to dance like a mystic.
Spring is coming (eventually)!
What inspiring things are happening in your neighborhood? Also, do you think birds’ feet get cold on that ice? ( This last question is from my husband.) We’d love to know what you think. 🙂
