Serendipity

That is such a fun and happy word.


As I write this, more snow is falling. Snow is not a fun and happy word. I'm very tired of this word, and I do not want to say it an-y-more!! And, I do not want to see it anymore. Yes, I know I complained about it in my last blog. Will it never stop? The snow started yesterday, and continued, and continued. I thought about taking pictures, but that would mean having to go out in the stuff. Besides, I could just pull out the pictures I've already posted. They look the same.


Anyway, back to the fun and happy word, serendipity. Here is a serendipitous moment that I wanted to share.



The Nutcracker

Eifel Tower

You can see how they lined the street

We saw this several weekends ago, when Hubby and I went to visit his mother. The little town we drove through, must have had some kind of ice festival or something, because all along the main road, we saw all kinds of ice sculptures. Some melting had already occurred, even though I don't remember any warm temperatures at this time, but, most sculptures were identifiable. 


Here are a few ice sculptures that formed on our bushes.




This is what it looks like now---again.

  10. Serendipity is a fun and happy word. I never thought about it before.

    I'm amazed at how people can make ice sculptures and make them last. In Mn they do sculptures out of butter at the state fair.
