Embracing Winter

I've live in the barren frozen arctic north for 3 years now, and if there's one thing I've learnt, it's that I hate snow. Hate.

However, a friend whose advice I've come to trust,  told me a couple of months ago that I ought to embrace winter, so I thought I'd give it a try... I have two new obsessions, icicles and snow walls.

The first is more specifically taking photos of icicles -

 ... and the second.... well, my neighbors think I'm nuts, but shoveling the driveway my as well be fun right?

I'm going to build it up every time I have to shovel. Ho ho ho.


  1. Poor thing. Hope you warm up. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
    Cannot wait to see what it looks like in a few more snows.

  2. Oh you clever girl! Love the snow brick wall :)

    Just popping in to wish you a happy new year! XO, Marsi

  3. Your photos are lovely, but no matter which way you slice it, I do not like winter, either!

  4. The mind is a powerful tool! It looks like you're using yours to an advantage! A little imagination doesn't hurt either! :-)
