Aby-a-Day – 2 Februari: “We build statues out of snow, and weep to see them melt” (Swedish Sunday)

Today we had a day outside, playing in the snow. As I posted yesterday, we finally got a bit of snow.

So today, Lorelai and I built a snowcat!

(Okay, it was mostly me. Rory just ran around in the snow most of the time.)

I haven’t made a snow-thing in forever. I think it was when I was living in Somerville in the early 2000’s.

It’s harder to do than I remembered!

Especially the muzzle with whiskers. It’s hard to put sticks into snow!

All in all, though, I was pleased with my sculpture. Several neighbours complimented it.

Before I got the gravel eyes set, Rory came to assess my work.

Not sure she approved…

…But hey, it looks like a cat, and that’s what’s important!
