So, it’s official – we’ve lived here for almost 1 year, and it has snowed twice. Once last Saturday, when we were leaving for Hokkaido, and today!
Because we value our lives and have little trust in our ability to bike in the snow (we’ve never done it), we walked to school today. Here is the river we cross on the way.
Here is the view from my classroom window.
We took the kids out after lunch and built a life-sized (for them – it was about 3-4 feet tall!!) snowman. The snow here is SUPER WET. I laughed at people using umbrellas until I realized you got as soaked as walking through a rainstorm. It’s really more like sleet plus snow here.
After work, we had planned to go to our local Indian restaurant, but they were literally closed for Valentine’s Day. How is that even a thing? So, I made cheese fondue instead. Romantic and delicious.
Teddy is eager with anticipation.
I’m almost done making the fondue.
I made Teddy homemade truffles for Valentine’s Day (whiskey, tequila, Irish cream, and pear liquor flavored).
He bought me chocolate liquor and…
Two cute pairs of earrings!
I also made delicious nut and fruit clusters. (We made them with the kids, too!!)
Well, that is all for Valentine’s Day. If the snow sticks around, you can look forward to more lovely snow pictures!!
