There's a calm, quiet when it snows. The whole world seems to stop for just a little while. You can't hear much of anything other than the soft falling of snow. Everything is gray and bright all at the same time. It's a wonderous thing.
Here, in North Carolina, we're lucky to get one, maybe two good falls of snow a year. I suppose that's actually a good thing considering the whole world shuts down. Being that we live on a "rural" route, our roads are very last priority for treatment and scraping. And so, we spent the weekend indoors, mostly.
We walked around our little corner of the world, exploring, noticing the beauty of it all.
The longer I sat in the house, the more stir crazy I got; and so, the relentless pursuit of having Jacob show me how to tie flies ensued.
The kitchen table soon looked like there had been a war of thread and feathers.
I managed to attach feathers to a hook, beyond that, I'm not sure.
Here's to snow days and the relentless pursuit of learning new things!
