Today in photos

Forgotten glove

Someone lost their glove and someone else found it.

We have a whole lotta snow and it may snow for a few more days!

We have gotten so much snow.  It snowed all night and it is still snowing.  It may snow for a couple days more.

My son found a chunk of snow that he is carrying towards me.  Hm.  I wonder what he is planning on doing with it?  :)

Accidental photo.  However, you can see the bag that I was carrying home.  

One of the mothers offered me this bag full of clothes that her son has outgrown.  Inside was a sweater that her mother had knitted.  It was touching to have something so special.  I asked her if she was sure she wanted to give it to my son since her mother had knitted it especially for her son.  She told me she had asked her mother if it was OK and her mother told her she would be happy if my son wore it now since her grandson had outgrown it.  Isn’t that sweet?  

The mothers here are all so kind and willing to help each other.  They are good and kind people.

    It feels just like my visit in March! Oh I miss the snow like that. As long as you can drive around, walk around and function, I would not mind it. The weather calls for possible snow here soon!

    That is really nice. There are people in my town like that too. Some mother’s here look around to see who they think is the right size and just give them bags of clothes their kids outgrow. I remember somebody giving me a ton of stuff her twin daughters outgrew. When I asked my mom why she said, “She thought you’d be the right size.” It is nice.

    What a thoughtful person. A handknit sweater is indeed a special thing…

    Love the photo of the lost glove. That’s a common sight around here. You find all manner of ‘lost things’ perched atop signs and posts.

    Expatraveler,
    I don’t mind the snow as long as all of us are dressed for it. It is so pretty.

    Julie,
    That is nice. It is one of the things I like about living in a village or small town.

    Caffienated Cowgirl,
    You know I saw it in France alot too. Even in Strasbourg in the middle of the city.
