In search for a little peace this morning, I decided to imitate art. Actually I can’t take all of the credit for the idea. A friend of mine named Renee asked me to make a snow angel for her. She did her undergrad in Duluth, MN and now lives in Seattle, WA, where they do not get the snow that she was once accustomed to. I have to admit, the idea of getting snow on my wrists and ankles made me think twice. It doesn’t matter how many gloves or socks I have on, it is inevitable. “Kim” the character and I share that pet peeve.
So, to all of you who have been blessed with a little white stuff this morning, as we have been in Madison, WI, bundle up and ‘take your medicine.’ I heard that the FDA just approved making snow angels as a safe a quick cure for Adultitis.
Here’s your snow angel, Renee. You can even see the video here.
The snow did not pack well. I’d like to introduce you to the my vertically challenged frozen friend. His life was short and sweet, as I watched someone accidently step on him minutes later from my window. He will be missed by all who knew him – me.
Kim! That was awesome! I feel so honored! It’s funny that you sent this to me today, because today it finally started to snow here! YEAH! It just started about 3 hours ago and hasn’t stopped yet! Yippee! I’m not as high tech as you are, so I don’t know if I will be able to document it, but do know that I will make you an angel too! :)
WOW- that is so funny that you are getting some snow also. Have fun making the angel and be careful for the snow up your sleeve!
I took my 1-year-old daughter out in the snow for the first time yesterday. She loved it, especially walking (holding my hands) around in it. She just giggled and giggled and giggled. We didn’t make a snow angel however. She didn’t really enjoy being on her back in the snow, and the dogs kept running over her. She seemed a bit perplexed when one mitten came off and she had snow on her hand. She just stared at it until I fixed it. Since I, too, love the snow, I’m looking forward to lots more snowstorms this year so we can go out all the time!
We have snow here in Chicago, too! :) Thanks Kim, for sharing your play time with us! I sent it to a friend in San Francisco who has NEVER seen “real” snow!!
That picture of you and your little snowman makes me laugh every time I think of it. I keep a jar and add notes of things that make me happy: you and Frosty are both goin’ in! :)
