monday motivation - melting point

Last friday, we had a snow storm which caused the start of school turn from a two hour delay to a snow day.  My daughter was not cleared to return to school until monday, so we took the weekend off to spend time playing in the snow.   We built snowmen and I paid tribute to our dog with a snow dog sculpture.  I sent a photo to my son (at University) and he replied that I should think of adding snow art to my portfolio.  One thing for sure is that snow is motivating.  It does not last forever and has a melting point.

Can you think of something that requires your attention or motivation due to time constraints, budgets or limits of sorts?  I can hardly wait for the next snowfall to sculpt and build snow art.

Love your snow dog Patricia! We've received a foot of snow for the last six weeks, no more snow please. It was close to fifty two days in a row and I love watching the snow melt.

Well, yes, as a matter of fact, we had a sunny 60 degree day over the weekend (rather than the 40ish temps and rain we've had for a lllllong time here in Oregon) so we gathered some friends and grilled chicken and steaks, had a pasta salad, some beans and sweet potatoes and enjoyed a picnic while we could. We wore sweatshirts - but still had fun!

Thanks MJH-
I was so much fun to play in the snow.
Made me feel like a little kid.
Sad it melts, but the sunshine feels so good too.

Snow can be so much fun. I choose not to battle it but admire its shapes. Then there is the hand of the designer who casts form to the formless.

Yes - making dinner for the boys as soon as we come home. If it's not done quickly, they get to their boiling/melting point... Love your snow dog and wonder if he pulls sleds!?

I was going to title this post "mush" because when all the snow melts, the mud becomes mushy~

Oh, that is really good, Patricia!! I feel like everything needs my time and attention lately. And, I've been saying "yes" a lot lately. Gotta hit the brakes so I don't overload yet again.

Hope A is feeling much better and was able to get back to school today!

something I have not contemplated....need to start approaching projects with your snow in mind. Time is of the essence. A thoughtful post....your sculpture pretty amazing.

Oh I love shoveling the driveway. Good cardio in neat straight lines ~ I love to vaccume also. Might have to wait till next winter to do a snow man that I dreamt of... my kids aren't sure what to think of it all.
Love the snow dog!
