While the Chef was busy shoveling snow hearts in the drive-way (yes, he likes to amuse me like that–he’s a sweetie pie) I figured why not drag out the glitter and sequins to decorate that blanket of white that fell over night . I’ve decided that snow is one of the most magical solid creations mother Earth can produce. Until I see the Aurora Borealis and am utterly mystified, snow ranks #1.
Glitter, even though it’s not a direct gift of mother Earth, is #2. When I was a teacher, my students knew glitter could do no wrong. I didn’t care if it was spilled, glued or flung into the air…the more the better! Oops..you dumped an entire bottle of glitter on your desk–no worries just dust it off…makes the classroom sparkle! (the night sweepers hated me I’m sure). Needless to say a nice portion of my classroom budget went to the replenishment of our glitter supply. Now that I’m without a classroom and students to enjoy the glitter follies with, I make do with the occasional canvas of white that mother nature provides–outside. There’s no night sweepers at our house.
Hope you enjoy the sparkle!
Can’t wait to share about our fun day with a certain Belgian named Don.
It’s one month until Paris and then it’s Chasing French History time again!
