Candles in the Snow!


I told you that I love snow!! It provides me with a huge blank canvas, that I love to sculpt. I shoveled a maze of paths out to the back garden area for Abbey the Cat to run through just as dusk was settling in. The lights from the back windows illuminated the tarmac, and I wasn't ready to go in, so I began to shuffle through the snow. Spirals began to appear before me.


When my husband, Don, got home he suggested the candles, and Abbey came out to play with me. She cheated a lot, and stepped out of the spirals to get to me, but I forgive her!

Walking the spirals is very calming - come on over and walk with me!

Paul, who plows the snow for us, will be by sometime tonight and all will be gone by the morning. I hear that more snow is coming on Tuesday. Yippee!
