Snow

 We Have a Little Snow Here
I took these pictures at 8:30 this morning  -  the street lights are still on!  I was fussing about the snowplow on its tenth trip by to dump snow behind my car.  My husband asked if I HAVE to get out, and I told him I don't, but I don't want to be that little old lady who DOESN'T.  He suggested I just enjoy spending the day getting things ready for Christmas instead of shoveling my car out.  So here I am, blogging, drinking coffee, and eating chex mix for breakfast.

To any of my students who are reading this  -  this is the time to get some great snow photographs.  We will work on snow paintings when classes resume after the holidays.

Now I'm going to go refine my menus and shopping lists, and watch the snow fall.

If you are in the middle of a snow storm, I hope you can just relax and enjoy it. Maybe you could get some good photographs and maybe a couple of quick watercolor studies.

Laurie - I'm sure you have a wonderful sight from your vantage point. Merry Christmas to you too!

BJR - It isn't too cold - in the low 30s, but windy. I wish you were close enough to take a class too. A very blessed Christmas to you also.

Great photos, Catherine. If your students take photos, as you suggest, you will all have a wonderful set of pictures to paint.

I think you are enjoying the morning the best way. I celebrate us putting our feet up, a cup of tea or coffee or hot chocolate in our hands, toasting the beauty around us this season. Merry Christmas to you all.

Annie - I did enjoy the day. I went out to shovel the walk for the mailman (and he brought me a check !)and to feed the birds. Other than that, I puttered around inside all day.
Merry Christmas to you!
