>The sound of snow

>Full moon tonight. My cat’s been acting weird yesterday and today so I’m hoping that is why. It snowed steadily all day. The kids were really happy about that. I decided to enjoy the weather (it wasn’t too cold) after work and took a detour to walk home. It usually takes me 5 minutes when I take the shortest way, tonight I took the 15 minutes way. It was so quiet all around. I love the sound of snow falling. Only people who have been standing outside on a snow day can understand what I mean by that. I’m beginning to enjoy this winter. In a few weeks, we have a family get-together on my father’s side. We meet up in the country, in one of my uncles’ cabin in the woods. We haven’t done this in probably 15 years so I’m really looking forward to it. My mother and I plan to go snow-shoeing in the forest, like we used to when I was a kid. Should be fun!

I only have my Daily Art Cards from yesterday and today to show you. The top one is simply doodling on cardstock. The bottom one is watercolour, Black Indian Ink, wax crayons and Conte pastels (it’s like chalk) on cardstock. The colours and theme for the bottom one is from a challenge extended by my dear friend CeeCee. Visit this post for more information about the challenge. I did knit last night and plan on doing more knitting before going to sleep. I find it very relaxing.

That’s all for today. Thanks for visiting. Oh and if anyone has an idea or suggestion on what I could put up for the upcoming giveaway (see post below), let me know because right now, I have no idea.
