Second snow day making it a four day weekend! I hope that turns out to be a good thing and not a cabin fever crazy thing.
Just in case you ever need a refreshing cup of snow! It took from about 10am until 3pm to fill the mugs. They make good snow castles.
The snow came yesterday and is hanging around even though we have had none today. The sun has not graced us with it’s presence, so there is not much ice melting going on, more ice forming.
We have ended up with a snow pie effect, crusty on the top and soft underneath which rather confused Pablo this morning. The seconds between him taking a step and his paw breaking through the snow pie crust blew his little brain. He even seemed to spread his little paws out as much as possible to make little doggy webbed feet to enable him to walk on the snow. Didn’t work. It was still a case of step – pause – sink – step – pause – sink!
It also made walking to the library this afternoon quite a workout as we had to take big horse steps to walk in and out of the snow pie.
Great new book for a day off school, it is a Mega Mash Up book called Aliens v’s Mad Scientists Under the Ocean and is a cool book where you get to draw some of the illustrations as you read. Might need to get more of these for the summer break.
