something about this nova scotian week has filled mabel with the festive spirit. the fall in night time temperatures makes dawn thick with snow white frost. cc's pa brews his morning coffee to the hum of the winter wonderland tune. while cc struts his miniature donkey around the house.
these pictures are from our making and playing today.
the hard covers of these worn out canadian books (a huge stack from the library sale cost just two dollars) make sturdy backgrounds for collages. tin bells are strung onto brown twine and golden thread to decorate mabel's fireplace.
cc and his friend markus meet up at the commons. they chase. then slide. then hunt for stuff in the stones. then we wander home and settle down at the table for some tuesday chicken soup.
