It’s been snowing allot, about every three days another storm rolls in. Last Saturday the snow was sticky and Faythe talked Jerel and I into building a GIANT SNOW-WOMAN. Jerel says it’s about seven feet tall but I think it’s closer to eight feet. Anyways it froze solid overnight and the weight of the ice caused it to settle. The settling has made it lean to one side a bit. Our snowman needs a V-8! I also built a snow burm in the back yard that gets taller every time it snows. It’s great for sledding down. You can see videos in the gallery.
School has started up again, I feel more ready for this semester than the last. I was able to work out study strategies last semester that should help me do well. At any rate school will keep my mind off of the headaches I get in the cold, and make the time move more quickly toward the warm weather.
The seed catalogs are coming in the mail. I love this time of year. It seems like just when the winter is the bitterest cold and I have begun to long for the fresh produce of summer, they come. Each page filled with bright and colorful plants so beautiful I can easy imagine the smell and taste of each one. It’s like getting a book of warm sunshine in the mail. I can’t wait to take naps in the hammock out in the garden in the warm summer sun.
