Flurries, flowers, and the kitchen sink!

There was a Rare Snow Event here in Austin today. Yes, anytime we get a single snowflake it’s cause for celebration, but this truly was An Event as the snow actually stuck and hung around past noon. And yes, you northerners are probably thinking I’m crazy about now, ha ha ha!

I enjoyed every minute of it. I caught some on my tongue. I took videos of it falling. I listened to the neighborhood kids screaming with glee. I followed the local news channels on twitter and saw The World’s Smallest Snowman in The World’s Smallest City Park. I followed The Event naming contest on a local news channel (SNOPAC, Snow by Snow West, and Snow Big Deal are my faves).

And, I took lots of pictures, of course!

First, the view from my kitchen window.  No not the sink, more about the sink thing later in the post. (Oh the suspense!) I got these flowers on Sunday. When it was 74. (Yes, 74 F.)


And then I saw these, in our prairie garden


This was the view from my office — I like to pretend it’s my little tree house


Then the sun came out and started melting everything.  (Darn sun.)


I had a nice cup of double green tea, then went back to work.  After work I could hardly wait to make this



It’s for lawnfawn’s “everything but the kitchen sink challenge #9”! Hee hee.

(Supplies: cloud stamp and gems by A Muse, patterned paper and ribbons by Cosmo Cricket.  Misted the whole thing with Ranger’s perfect pearls in water. Chipboard by Melody Ross — I rubbed it with Hero Arts’ Latte chalk ink.)

Okay, I’m off to eat pancakes (for National Pancake Day) — that cup of snow wasn’t very filling.

Hope you enjoyed the snow,
