Winter Wonderland

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

I love Acorn! One of the many big things I love here is that the land is absolutely stunning. As the land evolves throughout the seasons, everyday brings new beauty to the surface to enjoy and marvel at. Today brings a thick and fluffy snow that covers all of our buildings and landscape. It is the second major snow fall we have had this winter. It was so inspiring, I decided to go out while it snowed and take as many pictures as I could.

I can't feel my face.

I can’t feel my face.

Well, that’s all for now. I think I’ll try to start blogging more about my Acorn adventures, and I definitely want to start putting up more pictures!

ah, the snow

snowheart

i almost forgot! i meant to share a picture of our first snow. it was a lovely day – bad for driving, but great for staying in and sipping hot cocoa. i walked around late the next day to catch a few pictures. it was cold enough that even two days later patches of snow still lingered in the most shaded areas.

i grew up in rural pennsylvania, and really appreciate a good snowfall. i spent my elementary school years making forts in 5-foot snow drifts and sclupting snow turtles, tromping around in snow clothes knowing that Mom was waiting with hot chocolate when i got home. it’s nice to see snow come back to visit this year… i’ve been living in richmond and alabama for the past ten years, and the snow was… not plentiful, there, to say the least. i’m looking forward to hunkering down at acorn for a snowy winter.

snow on the woodpile

here’s the wood pile outside of heartwood – we’re in the midst of a huge re-siding project, and this is the pile waiting to be de-nailed. needless to say, no de-nailing happened that day.

Old Fashioned Mondays

my pile of tasks for the evening

my pile of tasks for the evening

this past monday we gathered in heartwood for yet another ‘old-fashioned night’. usually it means crafty things – mending clothing, knitting, or crochet. this monday had all three and more. i was joined by several lovely acorn ladies and a few gents while we created headbands, baby wipes, hats, and tooth powder (i was running out). the guys in the room helped by playing old-fashioned music and reading books on the elizabethan era. one guy said he enjoyed just sitting and watching us all at work. it was a cozy evening.

today we went on a craft store run to charlottesville. we got various knitting needles and crochet hooks so more of us can do projects at the same time, and hit the goodwill for sweaters to unravel for yarn. i think it’s safe to say good times were had by all, though we were very happy to get home just in time for dinner. we had enough of the city for one day.
