Silly people, who said snow had to be white? This was an idea that I had seen on Pinterest last year. I admit, I was a bit skeptical. When would it ever be warm enough to take spray bottles filled with food coloring outside? Mother Nature was kind enough to grace us with a warm spell last week. As a parent, you have to love anything that your children really get into.

In an effort to teach my daughter letter recognition, I have been writing out her name in block letters and getting her to paint them. It isn’t too long before her attention span wanes. She begins to paint her belly and arms and chases me throughout the house with her blue fingers.
Since the Weekly Photo Challenge is Alphabet, I will share her current rendition:

This photo was taken on August 24, 2015. Fires were raging hundreds of miles away. The wind currents brought the smoldering fumes towards us. I remember stepping outside that morning and the smell of burning wood was so strong that I thought the fire was in my backyard. I was surprised that evening by how much of the sun’s glare was diluted by the smokey haze.

Sandra was behind me, her 22 slung over her shoulder. When you are walking out in the bush, and are the owner of five Pomeranians, you can never be too careful.

…when the recipe says “let cool for twenty minutes” it really means “let cool for one to two hours.”
Perhaps if we weren’t so anxious… we would not have had such a mangled mess…

I find it difficult to take photos of wildlife. They usually run away as soon as you make eye contact. These deer stopped long enough for me to grab my phone.
