After raining, raining, raining for 2 days and 2 nights and the temps rising to almost 60 degrees, a cold snap came thru this afternoon and when I pulled into the garage the temp on the car gauge registered 31 degrees. That is a 30 degree drop from yesterday, and instead of raining, it is now snowing...well sorta snowing, it's kinda sleet/snow. But it's still white, so that makes me happy. I grabbed my camera as soon as I got home to try and capture a little snow before it's gone again. It just doesn't stick around too much lately.
As you can see they are more like little ice crystals than they are snowflakes...but it's white.
After Bible study today, (and btw we are doing another fabulous study, this one is entitled "The Girl's Still Got It" by Liz Curtis Higgs, about the story of Ruth) I went to a friend's home to put together greeting cards to sell for a Bake Sale at the church where I attend Bible study. Three of the ladies are stampers (which I was at one time, but have kinda deserted since I began photography). They brought fixin's for stamped cards and I brought fixin's for cards with my photography. Enjoying each other's company and doing something to raise money for a worthy cause is a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
And because I like hands holding just about anything, I took a picture of the new mint M&M's for Valentine's Day.
Here is a pic for one of my cards...remember those roses I bought about 3 weeks ago...I am still getting mileage outta those. I think I paid $5.99 for the bunch and they are still working for me. They dried beautifully, hope they last and last and last...
So that's enough stuff for today....hope yours was a pleasant one.... Oh and I have caught up with Downton Abby, watched it last night...so sad. I would say that Lord Grantham is in a heap of trouble, I think he is going to be in that "other" bedroom for quite awhile. ...just sayin'.
