Sketchbook Tuesday

We did get an awful lot of snow on Friday. We woke up Saturday morning to 17 inches of snow. Our local weather expert said we haven't had this much snow in one event since 1997. It's the most snow Kiddo has ever seen. She's had a blast sledding down our driveway while we fretted over how we were ever going to dig out. Luckily a neighbor showed up with a tractor. But being stuck at home has allowed plenty of time to make holiday goodies. And this elf still has gifts to wrap before the big guy shows up. So here's wishing all of you a Merry Merry!

Peace to you this holiday season.

17 inches in one storm is a lot to dig out from - even by Canadian standards! :-) Have a very merry Christmas Ann. May you and your family have a fabulous holiday together.

What a lovely composition - all the white snow with just the few shadows sets of the vegetation perfectly. I think you have really captured sense of stillness that can come with snow.

There is nothing so quiet as a scene you painted here - you brought wonderful memories of times past. :)

This winter will definitely be a snowy memory for you! I remember those days in Michigan we'd get snow like that. And yep, all the kids go sledding at the end of our street. Magical, just like when I was a kid, to not have to think about real life duties like work and shoveling. Glad you were able to enjoy the day and you were shoveled out as well.
