Just Before Bedtime and the Magic Melts

My front yard 5 minutes ago . . .
Oh, Frosty, the snowman, is a fairy tale they say. He was made of snow but the children know how he came to life one day.
There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found. For when they placed it on his head he began to dance around. . .

That's right. There is snow in Atlanta. And, it is sticking. And the kids are out of their mind excited. So I let them go out in their pj's and no shoes to dance in the falling the snow for just a minute.The first time Carmella ever saw snow she was just a year old. We came downstairs in the morning and she pressed her face against the glass and said "Look. It sugared."

And Beau told me just a few minutes ago that snow was like cold sand. . .

And I say snow makes the world look magical.

I hope the magic stays so we can make our very own Frosty in the morning.

17/0: Ten miles again today. Calf is much better. This time I ran the hills, even pacing. Very nice.


  1. Cool! I love the snow! It snowed here times it was really heavy didn't stick! :o( Hopefully it sticks around for you.

  2. The world is definitely better sugared.

  3. Bare feet, PJs, and t-shirts in the snow = Awesome.
    Gotta love the South!

  4. Yea, we were blanketed in it. I let Matthew out of the house to use the boogie boards to slide down the hills. He had blast, and after forty minutes or so came back inside because it was freezing.

  5. Snow would be a lot cooler if it didn't bring with it the zero degree temps it's bringing with it this weekend in Chicago......

    Long time lurker, first time poster, I feel like I just came out....(no I'm not if you're wondering, so let's not go there)
