But for now, these cold, fluff covered rose-hips and bare branches,
are all I have to look at.
They do provide about the only color (except for white)
in my garden right now, those little rose-hips.
Because the world is white today.
We got hit with a snow storm last night.
In twelve hours we got about a foot of snow, and more is falling.
There was even thunder and lightening, I find that strange in a snow storm.
Most schools and offices declared Snow Day.
(Woohooo, said my oldest who quickly kicked his fever aside
and went out playing with his brother.)
So today we're kicking back, shoveling (my husband), playing in the snow,
relaxing in front of the fire place and just enjoying an unexpected midweek day off.
I decided this was the perfect day to try to make an American treat called
maple syrup on snow.
You just boil maple syrup until it reaches soft ball stage
and then poor it onto a plate of snow.
Fun! And the kids sure enjoyed it.
