I can't believe that it's March 5th and I'm doing a post about snow! How crazy is that people?!
This morning, when I left to go have lunch with Ms. M and my good friend Doug, I was amazed to see how wintry our world was, especially since we've had such a mild winter. And yes, those are Christmas lights on the railing of our patio, we keep them up year round so that in the summertime it looks like fairy lights, and helps us find our way back when we kayak after dark.
The flakes were coming down fast and furious and you couldn't even see the creek very well or the barn in the field next to us.
It was so pretty though, and it made me feel like I was living inside a snow globe.
The pups even looked like little creatures inside a snow globe as the big fluffy flakes settled onto their coats making them look like reverse dalmatians!
The weird thing was that as I drove the half hour to Ms. M's house the weather changed dramatically. Over there on that side of the county there was almost no snow on the ground and the trees were not covered the way they were at our house. And I'm glad I snapped some pictures before I left, because by the time I got back home the temps had risen and there was not much snow to be found at our house either.
I had a lovely lunch with friends and I got to see one little blast of winter before it finally bids us farewell this year. I guess mother nature just felt like she couldn't let the winter pass by without a little reminder of how things could have been these past few months.
Plus, if I were mother nature I would just want to show off what I can do, like turning someone's world into a snow globe, if only for a few short hours.
In other news, I picked up a copy of the photo editing program Lightroom. I'm still learning how to use it, but so far I love how much I can do with it, like creating very custom black and white images like the ones in this post. It allows me to adjust each color and hue so that I can really customize the shades of black, grey, and white in any image...and I'm loving that feature!
I hope your week is off to a good start!
