I bet everyone thought I was going to write a blog complaining about the snow. Nope. I LOVE snow, especially when I don’t have to drive, walk, or slide through it. Today I spent the early afternoon in the delightful past-time of snow sculpting.
If I were younger, it would be building a snowman. Snowmen are boring. They were fine when I was a kid and drew houses with two sides and a triangle roof, but now that I’ve progressed in my view of the world, I guess my snow-play has progressed, too.
And I learned a few things…
1) It’s okay to get your knees wet. (Somehow this is a given for kids, but I was out there working for a while until I remembered.)
2) There’s no dog poop in the yard. We don’t own a dog, but the neighbors do, so I had a few fears way down deep in the recesses of my mind that it might cause a problem.
3) Even if the air is polluted with airplane fuel and radioactive particles , the snow still tastes good. (I’m not such a kid that I ate it off the ground…refer back to potential dog…)
4) Digital cameras just don’t do a snow sculpture justice. (I had to use severe contrasting to make the shadows stand out.)
To give a quick rundown of the image. I made a Snow Dragon with it’s head curling around. On top of it’s back is a toddler dragon and in the protective circle of the Mama Dragon is a wee baby dragon.
I’m doing the snow dance…maybe we’ll get more tonight!
