Building a snow man is a lesson in frustration in Colorado - either it is to cold and the snow is powder or the sun's out and everything is melting at an accelerated rate. It was a race against time to get a creation done today after the powder refused to pack yesterday evening. Then of course, one must factor in his Lordship, who like an energizer Easter bunny, is ready to clear the offensive white stuff of off every surface, leaving no building material. The building process became a furious race against the sun and a crazed British man with a shovel. I had plans, big plans , as I always do. But the snow crumbled again and again and alas, so did the design. In the end, what was supposed to be an epic skeleton emerging from a outer snow skin turn into a dwarf grim reaper. Instead of being terrifying, it is just kind of cute and lame. Oh well, so it goes in the delusional mind of Lady M.
It should have been a Easter theme like Jesus. Perhaps I will get another try during our May snow storm.
