This wasn't today, or even yesterday, but last week. We had a couple of days of SNOW! These poor northwest children rarely get a chance to experience any snow at all, and we sure had a good time hanging out, having a snow day and playing in the snow. Sometimes I wonder if it wouldn't be better to have a more snowy climate, but then I remember how it can get tiresome after months and months of snow. However, the first fluffy snow of the year always seems to have the same effect--a calm blanket of hush goes over the land and everything seems more peaceful.
Here is Gus wearing what he calls 'the two person scarf'. I made it for my friend Zoe on the occasion of her 13th birthday, and finished it this fall, finally. I was pleased with the results, and so was she. Gus thought it was great because we could both wear it at the same time, because it was sooooo long. I think he's blurry in this photo because he's dancing!
