Unexpected Surprises!

Don't you just love waking up to a Snow Day? All the schools and government offices in the area were closed, as was Marble Mountain, so that meant I too had an unexpected day off! Luckily for me because just look at what floated in on the ice this morning. This little beauty has been napping in our little bay all day while the snowstorm just seemed to vanish.
What a beautiful day this has been!

Paper is the preferred medium

I spend the best part of most days with Sage and Malach. They are the beautiful children of the even more beautiful Niki of Knix Hand Knit (I should be able to set up a link but I can't seem to get it to work), and her husband, Bill. I was honored with the request to take care of the children while Niki works at Marble Mountain as the Director of the Ski Patrol. It is a short gig really, and one that I am pleased to do for this little family. Sage and Malach love making crafts. Here are some photos of their best efforts so far.

Be careful what you wish for!

Before January 15th we did not have any snow. The grass was green and it looked like we were going to miss winter completely. It wasn't even cold enough for Marble Mountain Ski Resort to make snow; so they staged a snow dance to the gods and it started snowing that very afternoon. We have had snow 22 out of 23 days! It is enough to make one superstitious. It is all good though, we love SNOW!
