Tuesday, February 2


The daffodils aren't going to let a little snow stand in their way.

Life is most definitely stirring . Under this winter blanket of drab greys and browns (and this year a little white!) there is some hopeful green wrestling its way up to greet us. I love how fiesty the daffodils are here. They show up even earlier than the crocus. It is not unusual for us to be picking them in february , which is just in time to save us from sinking into a winter depression. I think a traditional symbol of Candlemas is the snowdrop....but I've never even seen one in real life. For us, it is the dear daffodil that heralds this celebration.

We've got big plans for a special meal and we have some candles to make today (a traditional activity for this time of year). But we've been goofing off in the snow for most of the day and are behind in our preparations.
I'll have to tell you all about it tomorrow. Here's what we've been doing today.

Mama and Toucie's snowcat

Sodie and Naya's "Snowgaara"

Mado's creation on the left...looks like the Monopoly guy, but don't tell her I said that.
