When I left the house this evening, I was greeted to one of the most delightful sights that I’ve seen this winter. My neighbours had taken the giant icicles hanging off our houses and had lined both sides of their walkway with them. I ran inside and grabbed my camera to record it (see right).
Since the cold weather isn’t showing signs of letting up anytime soon, I have a hunch we’ll be enjoying the icicle lane for the next while.
So rather than lament the long winter, I am savouring the creativity and energy of my neighbours.
And now I’m off to make puffed wheat squares just because I figure my neighbours are richly deserving of a gooey chocolate concoction.
