Day 25 and more snow


We woke up to snow this morning. Most of it is gone now. Most years, snow in January, even a few flakes, would amaze people and probably shut down the city. This winter, we had so much snow in December (more than a foot) that the novelty is gone. I think a good gage is the kids reaction. I got up and told Christian that we had snow last night and his response was "oh, I already saw it." Usually he would run around with joy. I decided to still take pictures because this is the first and hopefully last snow of 2009. I took the above picture of our cat Luna during her morning hunt. She sits at the window during a couple of her waking hours every day to "hunt" she looks out the window, does not want to be touched and waits for birds and squirels. When she sees something she crouches and makes wierd sounds.
Here are few more pictures. I am thinking about doing a garden journal/scrapbook kind of thing this year. I thought some snowy garden shots would be a good way to start. I often have more failure than sucess, so the idea of a garden journal is rather optimistic for me.

That reaction is definitely a sign that you've had too much snow! I still miss it though. I am from NY originally. Living in south Texas means no snow. :(

Your photos are awesome, but I can totally understand, that you are waiting for spring and don´t wanna have any snow! I feel the same way *lol*
