Eat snow. Sleep with owls.

 
 It snowed!  We had about 3-4 inches stick, but it snowed all day on Tuesday and never quit.  It was warm enough that a lot of it melted into the ground, but this much stayed with us.  It was a chilly day here so not much melting happened.  It always amazes me how we go from 60 degrees one day to 30 degrees and snow  the next and merely change our coats, pull on our winter boots and carry on.  This is how we roll on the Northern Plains -- always ready for a change. 

Hazel Peach came for part of the day while her mommy and daddy ran some errands.  We think it's a good thing to eat snow.  Do you eat snow?  The sunshine was nice and warm-ish  right after lunch so we breathed the fresh air, walked in the snow, played with the dogs, and of course, ate some snow.

While HP took her afternoon nap, I went to Grammy's Workshop and threaded up the sewing machine to make this fun owl pillowcase. I used  this tutorial from Plain Ol' Vanilla.  It's so easy!  I think I cranked this pillowcase out in half an hour.  The fabric I used  is "Life's a Hoot" collection by Adorn It.  Wouldn't a Christmas pillowcase be a fun gift?  Now Miss Peach can sleep with all of her (h)owls.  Hoot!

  3. No way! This is AMAZING! It only ever really snows here in January, although last year we had it most of December as well, which we loved passionately! But now? Oh wow! So clean and pure and COLD!

    Pillowcases are a good idea, Jody!

  5. Snow! How fun! Your cold weather is headed our way -- although, I don't think we're scheduled for snow. It's been such a gorgeous Indian Summer week here. Love the cute pillowcase. (Oh, and Yes! I eat snow -- although you're air is probably much cleaner than ours is here.)

  6. Mom don't you listen to Lucy from Charlie Brown? The snow isn't ripe yet- you aren't supposed to eat snow til December. :)

  8. I am making pillowcases, too. I looked for owl fabric for my oldest granddaughter....who loves owls. Did not find any in our local Joann's. Ended up with a shabby fabric to go with her bedroom. Still would love a fun owl fabric.....
    Enjoy the snow. Our one day of it did not last. Soon enough, it will return.

  9. Oh we do have the finest, cleanest, best-tasting snow out there! Even our "unripe" November snow is super-delicious, Miss Grace. Dawn, I hope you find the owl fabric for your granddaughter. It's the cutest stuff.
