February is here! We have made it halfway through winter! And while it is dumping snow on just about every part of this country, here we are in our Colorado mountains, at 7000-8000 feet, and we have just had only our second real storm of the winter. If you can even call it a storm, barely more than a few inches of snow, when in other years it would not be unusual for us to have at least several feet of snow by now, if not much more.
It leaves me feeling a bit confused, almost like it's no season in particular. However, it is super super freezing quite often, so I guess there is really no doubting it is still winter.
Other days though it's warm enough to go out and pretend that spring might be on it's way soon.
The girls are always up for outdoor adventures, no matter what the season.
This day they set out on a picnic...
Seeking just the right spot, which was beyond the snow on a sunny stone wall...
Waving good-bye to daddy.
Whispering sister secrets?
Smile for mama.
They said they were going to stay outside the whole entire day. But after about 10 minutes they came in. They said they missed me too much and wanted to come be with me :)
This was another day. They were traveling to Wisconsin. On foot, because they don't have a wagon.
They are Caroline and Charles Ingalls.
See Pa's suspenders? He (she) finger-knitted them all by him(her)self.
And now we begin the new month. I guess I don't really have a Brigid or Candlemas post this year. We did have a nice day, perhaps most memorable part being the wonderful Brigid stories we shared together. (Here is my Candlemas post from last year, you see we do so love Brigid...)
I always look forward to these special days in February, we sure can all use some extra joy and fun to help get us through the last long stretch of winter. (I pretend that it won't be too long...)
Hope everyone in the snowy lands finds time to enjoy some nice coziness!
