In Which A Turtle Is Constructed
A couple weeks ago, we had some snow on the ground, which I've come to realize is a surprisingly rare thing here. I guess it's how we're situated, surrounded by mountains, but we're almost always passed over when snow comes through. Anyways, we had some snow, the roommates were out of town, and I had a house full of beasts, so I thought we'd take advantage of the conditions and build a snowman. As it turned out, there wasn't enough snow for a proper human, so we made a snow turtle.
We had (and still do have, come to think of it) about a million different varieties of carrots in the house for some reason, so they were used as decor.
(In related news, I'm writing this at my kitchen table across from Emily, who has just started quoting Oliver Twist at the weather report of snow--"Please sir, I want some more!")
