172: Today at Colville


Today it snowed, an entire nine to five shift of flakes making the world magical. We took the dogs to the park, where we were the only ghostly ones, and let them off their leashes. So much joy in that. We heard eagles, but saw none, and I'm having trouble deciding which of these photographs is my favorite.

As always, see more here.

Also today: morning bookstore shift, ordered this book and this one; Ryan lost one of his lenses to his glasses in the snowy backyard (fortunately, he somehow has an even older pair he can wear until he finally makes an optometrist appointment); we are having Mediterranean chicken and Arborio rice for dinner as well as another (my seventh!) loaf of Vermont Cheddar Bread (it was also good with this spicy chicken we had a few nights ago). Tomorrow we hope to head to the Twin Cities to check out the CSI exhibit at the Minnesota Science Museum with Lane and Angie; we're also bringing (former student) Brianna along.

And tonight: more knitting. I'm pleased at how quickly all my projects are going; I might actually manage to meet all my meager goals by the holiday. I feel so lucky at how easy it's been this year. (You know, despite our own variation of the holiday counting songs: three car repairs, two frozen pipes, one barely functioning garage door, and a lost lens in the sno-o-ow!)

Stay warm and safe, all, and enjoy this magical snow.

I like Zephyr's snow covered face! Finally, the type of weather where he can be photographed.

I know! I was just telling Ryan about how, when I look at the gazillion pictures I took at Colville today, there's actually a balance between the two dogs... Black pets are so tough to get good shots of!

This set of pictures is so much fun. Zephyr stands out wonderfully! It looks like they had a blast. Logger hates the snow. He wasn't blessed with a winter coat.

Molly said...

Poor Logger. Oh, Kelly, you have no idea how much fun today was! I wish we could have snow storms all the time to go play in... especially when the park is completely empty and the dogs are running around! It was fabulous.
