Friday Favorites: Snowy day, throwing pots, and new skills

A perfect snowy day! Central Texas had a snow day like the big fluffy snow days I grew up with… big dreamy flakes. It was all gone by noon the next day, but I cannot recall a time since we moved to Texas in 1996 that it snowed like this. As a kid who learned to ice skate on a frozen lake… the sound and smell of snow transported me back to my childhood snow days in New York and Colorado. It was truly a gift to spend such a cozy Sunday and to wake up on my birthday to the sun sparkling on the snowy blanket of our yard. You can see by the photo of Zeke above the snow was much loved here at Chez Vee.

Reading a little bit of The Book of Delights every morning is good for my heart and soul.

The Wood Wide Web This BBC animation about the underground fungal connection between trees is short and fascinating… it would appear no tree is an island either.

The Great Pottery Throw Down made the snowy Sunday (did I mention it snowed?) even more wonderful. What could be cozier than a day of fluffy snow, crochet, a savory stew, and watching Brits clay spin on a wheel?

Because I am always a fan of learning new things… classes on Domestika. Note: Most of the lessons I’ve taken are in Spanish with English subtitles but there are some by English speaking artists too.
