Snowstorm Quickies

First Snow

With surprise, shock, and a little disbelief I watched as rain drops turned to white wishes during church this past Sunday morning. As soon as the benediction was prayed, Puddles and I leaped with joy, bundled up, and hit the trails!

Guess which is my favorite for surprise snowstorms? If you look REALLY closely you can see a snowflake on my hair… it’s tiny though, but it’s snow!

With goulashes on my feet (due to the previous rain) and a smile on my face, we trekked through the neighbourhood watching the snow fall on radiant wet autumn leaves.

snow at the pond
Moved to praise God, my Creator, I’ve rarely seen anything so beautiful as snow falling on vibrant autumn leaves!

The contrast between the two icons of the different seasons clashed in stunning beauty!

Sneak peek – design coming soon!

2 1/2 miles later, our trek came to an end, and the knitting began. We snuggled as I stitched.

sneak peek bulky weight
I see why everyone is gaga over bulky weight – seriously guys, CO to BO in just a few hours… how’s that even possible? Bulky weight :-).

A few hours later, I had a FO!

snow on flower
I popped out on the deck to surveil the snowflakes!

And it was time to hit the trails again… for the climes kept dropping and now the snow was sticking!

snow on cobweb
I’ve never seen snow stick to a cobweb before! Have you?

Even to this cobweb – how cool is that?

The snow is sticking!!!

Bundled back up in Arctic Climes, Puddles in his snood, and snow boots this time, we took the back trail for a different view.
I switch to my cell phone camera as this trail is a little steeper and I didn’t want to drop my camera if I fell. Doing so also inspired a conversion from prose to verse ;-)!

  1. What fun. You did a great job of photographing so many beautiful sights where the snow made its mark. And I enjoyed your narration too. Thanks for sharing. Great knitting creations as well!
