snow business

today i am grateful for...

playing in the snow before work. i had high hopes of going sledding with pals, but the shop ain't callin' a snow day.

warm layers

so i borrowed a few of ed's warmest gear, and crunched through the park.

snowy christmas branch

into the snowy woods, lovely dark and deep.

ballet shoes

glitter snow


and i brought some ballet slippers- a little keepsake i purchased at the nutcracker at lincoln center. which by the way, was amaaazing. george balanchine's version might be my absolute favorite. i wanted all of the costumes belonging to the sugar plum fairies and snowflakes. i would hang them all on my wall. i am currently listening to the soundtrack and bopping along to the music.

dried hydrangeas

saw some pretty dried hydrangeas coated in powdery white.

snowy leaf

and a lonely little leaf

traipsing in the thick snow was the perfect way to start the morning. i just wish i could stay and play instead of going into work today. aren't there such things as snow days up north? i hope y'all make some snow ice cream or build a snowman today.

Gahhh! Why can't it snow here in Australia? I'm jealous of you- this really is a winter wonderland...

Aw, I'm glad that you got a little morning romp in. But if it snows again and you have work, you have to just call in a personal day!! We went sledding too, and it was the most fun I've had in ages!

Lucky you at the Nutcracker! I would love to see the Nutcracker in New York at Christmastime. Who did the ballet slippers belong to? I can't make out the signature...

A white Christmas, a dream that came true this year. Or, should I say last year, as it is the first day of 2010. How quickly time moves...

And those signed pointe? Remarkable, I still want a pair so so much!
