My Snowman


My Very first own snowman.


My neighbour's snowman


















The view from my bedroom window










Snow Filled Trees. There is a God and his name is Alpha and Omega and He Lives. I cried out unto him and he heard my cry from his holy hill. Theatrical Am I? Snow - glorious snow fell today. Enough for me to build my very own snowman!! Just like I asked for. I was so excited today and couldnt wait to get out there and get to work. Throwing snowballs I mean and making snowmen. I still wasnt prepared enough and didnt have the right tools for my snowman's eyes so I had to make do with different colours of 'Contact lenses' for him from bottle caps. He's alright though - I think. I'll do better next year.


The down side is that its so wet and slippery outside. I have noticed that quite a number of people either have rainboots or knee high wedges boots on. Very sensible of them unlike my humble self who decided to venture out in just my sneakers and got entirely soaked right down to my socks. I have learnt the hard way - they're drying out now on my heater.

  6. Tminx: It was a lot compared to snow that has fallen in the past 3yrs. I'm ecstatic.

    @babsbeta: Thank You. He does have a wide smile now that u mention it.

    @londonbuki:It is frozen ice water and my finger were numb after. I rolled up all the snow without wearing any gloves but I loved it though. LOL @ ur prayer. It will get better soon. U just have to contend with melting snow first. Cheers!!!

    @Uzo: Its more like what? Untying my wrapper and tying it around my waist. Yes - I'm listening - More like what? LOL!!!

  9. I left for work, and after sitting in traffic for 30 minutes, turned back, and went home.

    I hate snow, especially afterwards, when it's all slippery and mushy.

  12. Hmmm...I save my wicked comment about your snowman. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  13. That is definitely a bush baby let loose in the snow with only a muffler to keep warm.

    I remember when I was a kid in the West Midlands, the only warning I got was not to eat yellow snow. :-)

  14. @Azuka: couldnt find matching bottle caps for his eyes. Changed them later on when I found larger stones. (smile) Half past 4 eyes? Take ur time!!

    @yankeenaijachick: I didnt think my neighbour's snowman was that bad. U n Azuka r wicked and too hard on that poor snowman. LOL!!

    @Ababoy: Did u delete ur blog or something? Thats the only way someone else could have taken over ur URL abi?

    @boso: U see? U were warned to work from home today and u still decided to go to work. Thank God u dont stay too far away fm ur office or u would ahve been terribly angry with urself. It was terribly slippery and mushy when everything started melting. Thats the downside I guess.

    @Funmi: I did have fun. (smile)

    @jaycee: U too? U all are so hard on my neighbour. I actually honestly thought it was a good effort.

    @omodudu: Wicked comment huh? I have been looking at others' efforts thru clips sent into BBc and ITV and I know mine is paltry compared to those. So spit out the wicked comment. Would love to hear it. (smile)

    @akin: which one is yellow snow again? Bush Baby hmmmn? (smile)

  16. LOL at your snowman! See, you got your wish granted. I wish I could have played in the snow too. It looked so fresh and inviting when I was leaving home in the morning. I had to go to work though. The snow made my commute very interesting indeed! But I'm glad it's melted now.

  35. I second ONB's comment. How can you pray for snow. Me, I can never do that. God forbid. Sun will always be my best friend. Your snowman doesn't look that bad for your first try.
