Congratulations to the winners of the ‘cleaning out my closet’ giveaway. The winners were chosen using the integer generator over at random.org. First up was #6 – Troutay and won the mug. Then I hit a doldrum where every number I chose afterwards wanted the mug. Until I got to #51 – Wildbanshee, who won the slippers. And finally, after another interval where I lost count how many times I hit ‘again’, #38 – Emily won the cosmetic samples. Congratulations to all.
You won’t see the proof because for some reason when I do a screen capture and paste it into a new document in Photoshop, it no longer allows me to save it as a jpeg. Must try to get to the bottom of that one, but until then please rest assured that those were the numbers chosen by random.org. Cross my heart.
If you think you’ll scream if you see another wintertime photo, please run away now. Don’t scroll further down. And please also don’t say I didn’t warn you.
I’m just one of those people who gets a kick out of snow. Not too much snow, mind you. But enough to make me feel like we’re having a good winter. Where I reside in Maryland is not known for its accumulation of the white stuff, so when it does happen, well it’s exciting for me.
And for my husband, too. He’s been enjoying the opportunity to cross country ski all around the property with the black & white.
We had a two-hour delay this morning, so I didn’t have to get to up in the dark. I managed to get outside and get some photos of the early morning light, but what I’m posting today are photos I found on the camera disk when I came home.
I asked my husband to get some pictures of the branches of the trees with the snow on them because this is the first time it’s really stuck like this.
I know that it can get you crazy when you have to look at it all the time and the cold can get on your nerves. I also know how depressing it can become. This is when it’s good to begin creating something colorful. Paint something. Knit something. Photograph something colorful. Anything! Anything to get your mind settled and content.
But right now I’m still loving the snow.
If you ask me a week from now, I’ll probably have gone mad by then. This weekend, we’re supposed to get hit with possibly 20 inches. Must get supplies in soon . . .
Until tomorrow, my friends ~~~
