I’ve decided that these last few posts will have to be my Snowbound vignette series because seriously folks, I am still snowbound from the storm that hit Friday night and all day Saturday. A plow showed up late last night after the Super Bowl which sort of surprised me. And his truck is still sitting stuck in the middle of our driveway.
Luckily, I have nowhere to go and am secretly enjoying the isolation here. I think it’s good for the soul to have a little isolation now and then.
My husband and I spent the late morning cleaning in different parts of the house. It’s so nice having two people doing chores because they get done so much quicker.
We started another puzzle. There is something quieting about working slowly on putting puzzle pieces together. I was also working on Pioneer Woman’s latest photo assignment which is shallow depth of field. I shot the photo above on an aperture of 4, focusing on the mug at the very front of the shot. I shot the photo below on an aperture of 5.4. This is a photo of [my favorite furniture polish]. Ever. I love how it makes your wood gleam and the scent is beautiful. I didn’t enter either of these; I was just playing around.
For this assignment (which is really a contest where the odds of winning are a gazillion to one), you are permitted to enter only one photo per day. Today I entered [this one]. I did get a little freaked out when I added it to her Flickr group pool, though. The group pool had been up for just a few hours and already there were over 24,000 submissions. I thought I had arrived at the wrong place and it was an older assignment.
It’s a beautiful day here in Maryland. The Baltimore schools, which are about an hour away, have already closed for the next two days. Our area is slated to get more snow tomorrow night into Wednesday.
I think I’ll take my cup of tea out to the front porch where I can sit in the sunshine. The sun has been packing down all that snow making it even heavier. It’s pretty chilly outside but in that sun, it just plain beautiful.
Until my next post then . . .
Update: I just received a call that our school will be closed for tomorrow and Wednesday. Wow.
