In her new winter coat, hat and scarf, Penny has joined the dogs and I for a walk on a grey day.
Building a snowman…
“Once I was a snowball,
Then I grew and grew,
Now I am a snowman,
How do you do? “
“I’m a friendly snowman big and fat,
Here is my tummy and here (where?) is my hat.
I’m a happy fellow, here’s my nose
I’m all snow from my head to my toes.
I have two bright eyes so I can see
All the snow falling down on me.
When the weather’s cold I’m strong and tall,
But when its warm I get very small.”
But big, friendly Fritz was the end of that snowman…Poor lil’ guy.
Some beautiful scenes on a sunny day…
“I opened my eyes and my room was bright,
I wondered what happened outside last night.
I opened the windows and let everyone know
The world was covered with fluffy white snow.
I grabbed my mittens, my scarf, and my suit,
And pulled on my brand new winter boots.
I ran outside and started to play,
And hoped that the snow was here to stay.”
“Down, down, and down it falls,
The bushes look like popcorn balls.
The places where I usually play
Look like somewhere else today.”
I love how this picture captured Randy in motion! What a happy smile, those dogs really love the snow!
After romping about, Fritz got tired and had to rest on the soft bed of snow.
“Beautiful feathery flakes of snow
Over the woodland and field they go,
Making a blanket so warm and deep,
Over the flowers that lie asleep.”
