When I opened the blinds this morning I saw that the world was covered in hoar frost! It is always so magical when this happens; everything sparkles. It is so cold that there is pixie dust floating in the air glinting, just like glitter, in the weak January sun and I am sad that my camera cannot capture that beautiful sight.
I quickly pull on my shearling boots and coat, grab my camera and go on an 8° explore. I stay close to the house so as not to leave any footprints in the pristine snow.
All the trees, bushes, and even flat surfaces like the fence and deck are covered in pixie dust.
As it warms during the day this pixie dust will float to the ground, shimmering as it goes.
Perhaps it's because I was so obsessed with snowflakes this winter that the designs jumped off the computer screen at me.
There they are: perfect six-sided wonderful creations of our Loving Heavenly Father that I can only poorly imitate with my scissors and paper.
