(There's something better coming up later in the post... bear with me...)
I wanted to quickly sketch the depth of the snow for you this morning (to share for Sunday Sketches). But the truth is, I am far too excited to actually get out in it and play and so this sketch is wildly out of proportion and frankly a bit of a disaster... but you get the gist. The measure on there is 8cm! Yes, 8cm of lovely fresh snow to go play in. Our first proper downfall this winter and who knows how long it will last.
The sketch looks more like a Christmas cake than a garden table. I couldn't find a ruler - hence the set square, but I think that worked better anyway!
My son and I are just waiting for the hour to be a bit more sociable before we venture outside and begin shrieking with delight as we throw snowballs, craft snowmen and generally cause mayhem.
As this sketch is a bit of a mess, I think I should also share a more complete piece of journalling I did yesterday. A face... what a surprise! I have seen other bloggers taking part in 29 faces and creating one portrait a day throughout the month of February. Normally, I would have leapt on this like a kid in his first snowdrift, but I am soooo busy mes amies that I am trying very hard not to leap at every opportunity that hits me in the face snowball style.
