The Day in Pictures

Riley and I took the dogs out early this morning, even before the sun was up. We each brought our cameras and went out looking for art. With freshly fallen snow this sewer grate caught my eye:



We decided to walk down by the water, a route we hadn't taken since the first significant snowfall. The footpath had been recently plowed and we discovered that despite the early hour we weren't the first ones there. Someone had already passed through, walking a path of love:


Then we saw not one, but two one-eyed snowmen:


And we finished it all off with a couple of tumbles down the big snow pile:

It was a lovely way to start our year.

i haven't tumbled off a snow pile in years. there just isn't any snow here in the coastal area of california. but i grew up in the snow, so i have great memories of it. and snowmen. we used pinecones to make buttons for out snowmen. and if we didn't have a button or a carrot for a nose, we'd use whatever we could find. i liked to make small twigs into smiles. all my snowmen had smiles.
