i think there might be too many sweets in our days.
Little A skipped the last half day of school and the boys headed out in the snow before 7am. they spent 4 hours straight building snowmen, snow forts, snowballs, sledding, eating snow… After drying off and refueling they headed out again to the tobaggan hill. Small dramas aside, i wore my pjs ALL day (out with my 1993 sorels shoveling snow), got the littlest A to sleep in the teepee and spent some cozy time knitting last minute gifts;
oblivious to the slushy snow that has fallen down his neck, totally immersed in snow play;
It was so awesome and magical. Every year i think i will skip the market and just wander around to take more of it in. Sorry no photos! i can’t believe it. I also can’t believe that i haven’t been outside yet today! It’s gorgeous and yet i have been in the land of photo editing and listing for the shop and there is still much more to come. For now, amongst other items, i have put together a little playscape for the upcoming first week of Advent when we will celebrate the creation of minerals, stones, crystals and bones;
yes! the wind has blown the clouds over and it looks like we’re going to have some sunny days through the weekend. it has been freezing and i wish i had layers and puffy coats like these little ones to keep me warm. fun times just in the back yard;
a pile of leaves can be such a mood changer. i highly recommend it. it’s especially nice to have a heap in our own back yard and to know that there’s no nasty in it. people in the neighborhood are mostly good about picking up after their dogs but it seems now, as in years past, when the fallen leaves are abundant there’s a lot more “out of sight out of mind” attitudes. I’m contemplating a small sign out front to let dog owners know that children play here. Anyhow, last week yellow leaves, this week red;
