Taste Snow's Tang


There will be snow in the sky,
snow on the ground, snow in the mysterious courtyards.
You taste snow's tang, smell snow, feel snow on your face.

Ah, another connoisseur. My ds was discussing snow flavor, comparing years, just the other day.

Cute pic even though I'm not so sure it is a good thing to eat snow. Lots of stuff in that snow that ain't water. When I was little I never bothered with that. Except the first rule taught to all Swe children. Do NOT eat yellow snow. Now it's mostly do not eat snow period.

It's cold and dark here today. I think I'll just go home and nurse my cold. Coughing and sneezing and making a general ruckus isn't so much fun when sitting in uni comp lab trying to write an essay.

Alice~ Ah, she has a kindred spirit, eh? LOL

Nina~ Thank you! I'm sure The Bug's Mom made sure she was in a clean patch of newly fallen snow. That pic was taken during the blizzard the week before Christmas. I hope you are back home now and taking care of yourself. Sick Vikings are no good at all! ;)

As for the simul-posting...GMTA! I was actually posting on Alice's blog when you two were over here posting to mine. ROFL...

LOL on commenting at the same time, Nina.

Yep, we're kindred Heather friends. So funny about you being over at my place while I was over here. :)

Cute photo! My husband has been praying for snow ~ literally. He was quite upset that we had such a warm Christmas. Here in Charlotte, NC, we don't get much snow. Hope you enjoy it!

Heather said...

Hi Jennifer! LOL at your husband praying for snow. He is more than welcome to some of ours. We've had nearly four feet already and still a good three months of winter to go. Second year in a row that we've far exceeded our norm. *grumble grumble grumble*

;)

So cute. And snowy! Happy New Year, Heather!

Heather said...

Happy New Year, Lynn! As you can see, we've had a lot of snow again this winter - nearly four feet already!
