Firstly, I must apologize for the state of the photos in this post. The light worked against me, both indoors and outdoors. I had a fiddle with the colour balance in the snow photos, but pitch black dog on white snow was difficult to capture with a simple wee camera.
As you can see, we had snow during the week, and I took these photos on a walk with Miss Dog in our neighbourhood. It was Thursday - no school! We had a SNOW DAY. Yay!!!
Today The Crafty Neighbour, her Crafty Mother and I went to visit Scrappin' Patch in Rolleston. I dabbled in a bit of scrapbooking after my last visit, and this time had more of an idea of what would work for me. I decided to make album pages for Lucy and Henry, our darling niece and nephew. I thought it would pay to get into the cute papers before they grow up any more. I couldn't resist this cute woodland creatures paper for Henry. The photos are so sweet. I'm strictly a beginner, but this looks fine to me, and suits Henry. It is much better in real life.
Tomorrow will be a horsey day. I wanted to give Zanny some time to recover from the cold days. I remember how tired Sam was after snow days last year. Unfortunately when I picked up the vacuum cleaner to move it this afternoon something felt like it ripped across my hip, and it wasn't my knickers. I wish it was. I've hurt a muscle and it is really painful. Time I got Windsor Pilates out again to "strengthen my core." I thought that the last time I hurt my back, and I never did. The newest injury will teach me for my lack of regard for my midsection. Especially if I can't get my leg over Zanny tomorrow (in an equestrian manner, of course!).
