Frosty Friday

You know that icing sugar and sparkly glittery frozen fog thing I wrote about yesterday? Well.
I tried to photograph it. But, with the sun refusing to light the branches up for me, the photos look kinda flat: Frozen foggy branches are not the same as snow-laden branches. Clearly.
You'll just have to trust me when I say in real life these twigs looked magical.

Actually, these crystalized twigs remind me of these lollipops.

I'm trying to find beauty in our winters. Frosty branches vs sunny beaches....

Yeah, these are nice. But. They don't cast a warm glow on your face as you sit in a lawn chair reading smutty novels and drinking lime smoothies.

I only had two spare minutes to take pics in my yard today and then I spent the better part of the day on the road. Driving.
FIVE hours of driving.
The morning with Max. And the evening with Drew.
So it was all good.

I took Drew and Mark up to Cypress:

They met on MSN instant messenger and are now facebook friends. Turns out he lives just down the road from us.
They snowboarded while I sat in the lodge, reading.
Win, win, win.

By the way, this is what the lodge looks like:

Some Fundy girls

(Using my 50 ml lens with NO flash. I'm happy with the results.)

Drew was the only boarder with no helmut.
And he was the only person on the mountain, not wearing a jacket.
How did I end up with such a cool son?

Three things I'm thankul for:

1. My kids.

2. I'm thankful that we live near mountains (for the kids) and beaches (for me).

3. I'm thankful for sleep-in-Saturdays.

And I'm thankful for the City Under the Fog:
