I'm on vacation this week and it's snowing. Doc and Super Princess Power Girl still had to go to their respective "workplaces" (somedays, for her, it is work), but I am at home sewing doll clothes, contemplating my Greek-Fantasy world, listening to a variety of music from Katy Perry to Duran Duran and watching the flakes fall. Even though I don't like snow, it's really pretty out. Everything is still somewhat pristine (minus the footprints from my boots). So I decided to take some pictures.
This little guy was nice enough to sit still for me. His buddy, however, headed off as soon as he noticed me sneaking up. Granted I sneak like a pregnant water buffalo (or so I've been told - thanks to Tara, my friend from high school for that little bit of encouragment). I particularly like this photo. The hazy sun right behind him makes it really nice. That and something about the chilled, snow topped berries all around. It's such a great wintertime image.
And speaking of snow-topped, chilled berries. There are these little trees all around in front of our condo units. I am not sure what they are, but those berries seem to hang around all year long. I thought at first that they might be crab apples, but they are awfully small. Then again, they could be flowering crab apples which I don't believe are edible. But they make for good imagery.
Snow capped bird feeders are another thing that I think looks really pretty. This particular one is in our side yard. We picked it out last year and the birdies emptied it in about ten seconds. I need to find the bird seed. I'm sure right about now they'd be appreciative.
The sun's starting to peak through a little bit now, but my toes are too cold to head back out for more pics. I have to go out later and shovel the walk and such anyway. Maybe more then. For now, it's back to the shirt for the dolly I made and listening to some more music, while contemplating how to best insert the Nine Headed Hydra from Hades into the game I am planning.
