What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Foto Friday: SNOW


Last week's photo challenge was SNOW ....and let me tell you~ I wasn't feelin' it.

Snow and I don't get along too well these days. SO, you will see from the photos I post that I didn't try too awful hard to think out of the box on this one (tsk, tsk)...unless of course, you think dunking a finger in snow is an especially thoughtful and unique concept. :-)

Here are my contributions:



Apparently, the snow caught this truck driver off-guard. Hopefully, he will get a plow out soon....


I went for a walk one day hoping for something snowy and substantial to photograph. I was by myself when I noticed this remote part of a creekbed. Too far for our animals and children's tracks....yet completely laden with tracks and traces of animals that have been lurking quietly around.

It is awe-inspiring to think how small your life really is in the grand scheme of things.



I tried the "maple syrup on snow turns to candy" experiment and it failed miserably. It just absorbed right into the snow. Turns out it is not syrup you pour on snow but a mixture of molasses and brown sugar (thank you Little House Cookbook). We will try it again sometime. In the meantime, the children say SOMETIMES yellow snow can be DELICIOUS!!!


And for all those folks who don't see a flake of snow the whole winter long, I wanted to encourage you all to think outside the proverbial box. I created gigundo snowflakes from popsicle sticks and hung them from the ceiling.

Now THIS is my kind of snow!


And a BEHIND THE SCENES shot:

Andrew is the bell jingler to get baby to look my way and Corynn is the baby spotter. The snowflakes are hung with fishing line and tape (they are very lightweight).

In order to participate in these Foto Friday challenges, you must take a photo (or several) pertaining to the challenge WITHIN the challenge week and post it/them to your blog. When you do, please link back to this blog {you may use the button if you like} so that perhaps we can get lots of participants! (Because, you know, the more the merrier!) Then simply link to your Foto Friday post with Mr. McLinky here so that we all can visit you and compare notes...


For those of you new to this blog (or to Foto Friday's in general), each Friday we get a new photo challenge to work on for the week and we post our photos the next Friday and link back up here. Whatever your skill level, the goal is to get behind your camera and to begin, as you practice, to view subjects in a different light. To extend yourself and your concepts and ideas. To create ART instead of just snapping a picture. And to do it all while having FUN.

This week's challenge is much less tangible:

the theme is ::REACHING::

I look forward to seeing your many interpretations of that!!!
