Winter Sculptures

It recently snowed here, couple that with the fact that I've been sick for a week, and you get me huddled in a fort of blankets and pillows for a ridiculous amount of time. Oh did I mention that the heater in my house doesn't really work either? We have one wall heater all the way at the back of the house, in the furthest room from the bedroom...so my days have been recently filled with long periods of huddling for warmth, and then quick dashes to another room to gt something, go the bed, etc. Not the funnest thing.

So today, I had to walk the two blocks to the post office to get a package. Since it may be my only outing for a few more days, I thought I would take some photos of the pretty icicles I encountered along the way. Enjoy!







And yes, my fingers almost froze off taking these. it's 15 degrees here, with a 10 mph wind...BRRR!

Love and Lightning Bugs,

Sorry that your house is cold. I have lived in houses with poor heating before and it was no picnic. Your pictures are gorgeous, though!
