aftermath of yesterday's snowday.

yesterday we had a snow day here in Muskoka.
buses were cancelled.  
roads were slippery.
people complained of winter coming back.
it felt like winter yesterday.
this morning we woke with the sun shining brightly, and glistening off the fresh snow.

haha, he blew a little too hard and it blew back in his face.
guess that's what happens when we are rushing it as the bus is pulling up.

this poor boat became frozen in the giant puddle that froze over. 

all the puddles froze with a beautiful frost over them.

look at those shadows!

but don't worry.
spring is here.  
even with the snowy day yesterday.

as i was walking to the house i spotted this beautiful lady.
i don't know where her nest is built or being built but she's almost ready to lay her eggs.

day 64: 
A Story in Three

i thought for a little while trying to figure out how to take a photo of this.  
3 photos to tell a story in some way?
then i began thinking about  what stories do i know that are in three clear parts.

written as one.
split into three books.
we have one amazing, classic story of adventure and courage.
i hadn't read it as a kid.
 i saw the first movie actually and after that i purchased and read the whole thing set 
within the next month or two.   
(including the Hobbit, but it's a story on it's own)

so here it is.
a story in three.
