I wish someone could have filmed us, because it felt as though we were in a movie. We noticed it was snowing and grabbed a soccer ball and ran outside. I was going to write a post about the differences between male and female plants but the opportunity to enjoy a long awaited snow fall was too much fun to pass up.
There was only about two inches blanketing the ground when we got outside but it was the perfect snow for sliding around and making snowmen! As you can imagine we were slipping, sliding and falling constantly.
The wet snow coupled with our foolishness which left our coats inside meant we were soaked by the time it was all over. It started with one of my good friends and I playing soccer, running around chasing each other trying to steal the ball away and seeing who could keep it up the longest. Eventually we abandoned the soccer ball in favor of a traditional snowball fight.
It didn't take long before that developed into the creation of the season's first snowman which we built on my porch right outside the door. Of course, my roommates don't look much farther than their nose so less than fifteen minutes later it had been knocked down prompting an all out snowball war!! Overall, I spent almost two hours in the zero degree weather in my t-shirt and jeans with fluffy snow falling all around. Thankfully there was not a single bit of wind which made for the perfect conditions to have such a great time. It was so nice to get away from the books and the computer screen to just enjoy this season and the cold and surprising even the chill on my nose makes me smile lately. It won't last though, it never does, soon enough I'll be anxiously awaiting spring but for now....... I'll just enjoy it while I can!!
