365 Project - Day 7 - "Sleeping in the Snow"



January 07, 2011 - "Sleeping in the Snow"

Snowy day. Schools closed in anticipation of the snow. Holly and I still had to work though.

Left work early as the snow started coming down hard. Called Holly and told her to get her butt home because the roads were getting bad. Shoveled the driveway while the kids played in the white wonderland of a yard.

Quiet...

Except for the sound of the snow falling...

... and the distant snowplows...

... and the scrape of my shovel...

... and the laughter of my kids...

... and the chirp-chirp-chirp of the birds. Lots and lots of birds - mainly chickadees - filling the bushes and trees, seemingly "playing" in the snow -

- except for this little guy, who apparently was trying to rest.

So I grab my camera and capture the moment - before some more of his buddies came along and disturbed him into action.

Oh well...

Back to shoveling!

(Life is good!)

Gotta love the chickadees! Beautiful little birds, they are, and your photo does the beauty justice.

And yeah - life *is* good. :)
