Snowy Day

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.

The two person scarf on one Gus

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!
