I looked out the window to the layer of snow in the yard. The wind had created a blanket of pine needles and small branches that now covered the glistening white. I have been wanting to build a snowman but have either been sick with a cold.... or at work.
Now was my chance. I debated about the adventure, knowing it was cold and wet outside and I was warm and comfortable inside. But I really wanted a snowman. It didn't have to be big I told myself. Even a small one would suffice.
I slipped on the boots and zipped up my jacket. The rain had melted a few inches of snow and left a thin layer of ice. I smiled as it crunched beneath my boots. It was great snowball snow, packing easily and staying solid.
I began rolling the snow. Found just the right spot outside the livingroom window and began building. The second section went on easily and I carefully rounded his belly with my glove. Next came the head. I looked for some branches for his arms.
Before I knew it my little guy was finished. He may be small but it was so much fun!!
