It snowed yesterday afternoon and the 1/6 inch we got is still on the ground. Usually snow doesn't stick around very long in Georgia. Our lake in our neighborhood has a thick layer of ice encasing it. Ducks walked across the frozen waters and there were human footprints tracked across the lake -- which freaked me out a bit because the ice doesn't look thick enough to support a human.
I'm not an expert in dressing for winter, mainly because Southern winters are very mild. Even though I should have bundled up and dressed practically, the thought of seeing a serene wonderland made me reach for the more romantic, girly things in my closet. Winter is fun sometimes, but I'd like to get back to wearing my sundresses and shorts and everything else that's wonderful to wear in warmer temperatures, and I secretly think if I keep wearing impractical skirts and dresses, Mother Nature will take notice and bring an early spring.
The ones who seem to be enjoying the weather are the penguins who reside in my house. Jeremiah and I are fond of all things penguin, and have amassed a little collection of stuffed animals and other knickknacks during the course of our relationship. When you tell one family member you love penguins (or pingus as we call them), everyone else takes notice and the theme persists for every gift-giving occasion. I'll really have to round every penguin up and take a photo one day. We decided to let two come out and enjoy the icy outdoors.
Are you enjoying snow wherever you are? Did you get a day off from work or school?
Hope you all enjoy the weekend!
