So snow is late-r this year. But it came with a vengence...
I was on my way to CAS (Children's Aid Society) early one Wednesday morning, and when I got off the bus, it was raining. In fact, it was raining from before I woke up, and all through the time I traipsed across campus to the bus I wanted.
But in that short time I got off the bus and walked to CAS (less than a block from the stop), it changed from rain to snow! I actually saw it change!
By the time I was done with my volunteer work at the CAS three hours later, it was completely WHITE outside. But oh-so-pretty! My friend, Irene, and I, ran out to play without our coats.
My friend, Irene, and Me...
We had a couple days snow previously, but this is the first one that has stayed. That was last week, when we could still play (briefly!) in the snow in light clothing.
Today...it's -15 degrees. Bah!
Another plant that CAS gave me last year as a thank-you gift has now being semi-adopted by my uncle because his fingers are uber-green! And I didn't want to risk another pretty pot dying... Let's see how long this one lasts!
Gingerbread House...It's actually quite nice to eat too!
And I made my first gingerbread house at a Christmas Party hosted by Kinark Child and Family Services, a volunteer organisation I'm attached with.
The child whom I'm working with, we had made our own spray-paint t-shirts the week before, and so we wore it to the party! I can't post a picture of us together for confidentiality reasons, of course...The kids got their own stuffed-to-the-brim stockings and the adults (volunteers, parents etc) got a plant (it's got pink flowers!) each...
Lol...As pretty and thoughtful as a plant is, I have the lousiest fingers ever for plants. I tried having one in my room once--it was such a pretty pot of dark African Violets that I had to get it when I walked pass it in a store!--but it died a couple of months later.
