Still Dreaming of Snow
When the clouds cover the sun and the air is nippy enough to bite my fingers, I can't help but think we'd all be cheered at least - if we could at least have snow! I painted this partly from the snow last week and partly from imagination ... and mostly from HOPE! LOL
I suppose we like snow in the North Carolina piedmont because it doesn't linger very long. But last week's snow, believe it or not, is still in evidence in some of the low-lying areas -- as well as on my front steps! The saying here is that what snow lingers, it's waiting around for the next snowfall -- which won't be too far off ! So I"m hoping it's this weekend! LOL
Spent yesterday doing chores, car inspections, etc., and today will be filled with getting more fruit trees in the ground before the rain this afternoon, getting our holiday preparations closer to completion, working on a grant for work...etc. Seems like there are more things to rush around with this time of year.
Hope your day is restive!!!!
