Winter Snow & Snowmen...
Today did not let us forget it is after all Winter. This is around 9 am when it began snowing with sincerity.
I just had to get my camera and try the "snow" feature it has. I love my camera so much I have already had it for several years. It is a Canon Power Shot SD880 IS Digital ELPH. I know how old fashioned I am because I don't have a smart phone or an iPhone, iPod, iPad or anything else i really want. Wanting them and knowing what to do with them are why I don't have such technically advanced toys.
I didn't take any later in the day photos but it finally measured just about 6 inches of snow. Not bad. Mr. C did have to shovel the driveway though as it will ice overnight and he has an early morning meeting of the "car guys" to attend. They meet once a week for breakfast at Penny's Diner and it is a good group of guys. I know because I had to "crash" their party one morning. Lots of Testosterone in that group!
So because I am fortunate and do not have to go to work or anyplace else I was able to stay home and cozy. I spent a little time in the studio. My little "keeper" was storing some beading supplies and how appropriate that I work on them today.
Pretty cute if I do say so myself. Little beaded snowmen. I made some as lanyard charms and some as earrings. I will be putting these into my Christmas stash of gifts for giving. I usually do work on Christmas all year long so I am better prepared when the time comes and life is hectic and busy. It is such a relief to have some gifts already prepared.
The rest of our week is merely supposed to be cold. I thought for a while we might lose power as the lights blipped pretty badly but alas we were spared that Winter "camping" experience. In past years when it snows a lot more than this we would lose power for up to five days. Not very fun when you have your own well for water. So I am happy and thankful we have some added water table moisture.
I am seeing so much Easter crafting yet I haven't even thought about it yet. I did do some fussy cutting of Shamrock themed St. Patrick's day items.
Silence and Beauty of the Snowflakes Dancing to Earth was amazing today. Blissfully ethereal...
