The photo prompt for today, A Snowflake, made me shudder. Last year at this time, we were digging our way out of snow nearly every week. We have gotten lucky this year. Just a tiny bit of snow that didn’t accumulate to much at all. Wasn’t even a nuisance. There is no snow for me to photograph. I have plenty of old photos from last year and snow storms prior, but I wanted to take a photo today.
I dug this out of my “January Bin” in my classroom. I wouldn’t even hang them up this year. I have several of these very large snowflakes that I usually hang up in the room but I really don’t want to face it this year so I have left them packed away in their bin – hibernating for another season I hope.
I know, it is still super early in the winter season and we have many weeks ahead of us. Maybe in March I will be praying for a snow day. ONE. No more than that. We all need one of them once in awhile. A day to stay in because we have to. Nowhere to go, comfort food cooking and building a snowfort in the yard. That is enough for me. I don’t know if I could handle another winter like last year.
So, my glittery, cardboard snowflake will have to do for today because everything – even snowflakes – look better with glitter!
