Snow interrupting

For anyone who lives somewhere that has what I think of as “real snow,” this post might not make sense, but for those of us who live in the area of North Carolina known as the Piedmont, what would be a small bit of snow in any of the states bordering the Great Lakes pretty much brings things to a halt here.

Sometime after midnight, it had, as forecast, begun to snow. By the time I got up, it was raining, and what snow had collected on the ground was the consistency of a Slurpee or Icee

So almost all of the errands I had planned for today got moved to Friday and were replaced with time spent clearing the walkways and driveway so that should the temperature dip below freezing, my sidewalks would have a thinner coating of ice than they otherwise would.

While I was out clearing the slush, I couldn’t help but notice that my outdoor office looked a little drear:

I wondered if a touch of color would help and decided to see if my mindful mandala would add a much needed dash of joy and exuberance to the otherwise barren snow day tableau.

I don’t know that leaving the mandala out in the weather is a good idea, but I liked the effect and think that I am onto something.

Once Christmas has passed and the snow has melted, I am definitely going to revisit this project and see what can be done.
