Snow in the Sun
The snow is so deliciously pretty. Here are some pictures of it in the sunlight today. It was an amazing day, weather-wise! The roads are all very icy though, and I can actually step onto the street, run, and slide like on a skating rink. It's crazy!
Last night I stepped outside after my parents were in bed, as I do on many nights, and I was completely awestruck. It was frigid, but the untouched snow absolutely glistened in the moonlight. It was like a reflection of the stars above. All those tiny, twinkling sparkles, spread across in millions on the ground, lit up by a reflection of the sun. Amazing, isn't it? I just stumbled around in the snow shaking my head, gazing at the sky, and being mesmerized by the snow. It was incredible. It is moments like that when I just have to sing my worship to my Creator. I didn't care who woke up! (It was midnight)
I felt over-tired today. Mostly from exam preparation and extreme sadness about the choir concert. And partly because I'm a bit stupid sometimes and stay up way too late. :P My eyes must be incredibly fatigued, because they hurt like mad and everything looked like it had water in front of it. Very weird.
Oh! I also got some gorgeous yarn today! I've been crocheting for a couple years now (Thanks Maya!), but I still sucked at knitting, so upon receiving a whole truckload of old knitting needles and patterns from my Granny, I decided I'd better learn properly. So, I have set about the task of properly teaching myself to knit. I can knit and purl now, and at least I'm not dropping too many stitches. :) I'm going to attempt to knit a scarf. I'm also starting to crochet a gorgeous baby blanket for my hope chest. (In other words, I'm making a baby blanket for future babies.) I figure it will be nice to have something like that layed aside. "See baby? I made this when I was 16!" Pretty cool.
And on with the pictures that you are all (hopefully) dying to see...
