Make me an angel

After posting a photo on Instagram yesterday of a fresh snowfall that was looking like a blank canvas, an online friend wrote “Make me an angel” I smiled. This was not the first time she asked me to make a snow angel.

The child in me that rarely gets to come out and play was grinning from ear to ear. She knew that the serious part of me, was going along for the fun.

Both my husband and daughter thought I should wait a few days until it would be much warmer out to do this. I wouldn’t hear of it. I wanted to have fun… right then and there. When the urge to play comes, you don’t wait.

I couldn’t remember the last time that I made a snow angel. I am guessing its probably been close to a few decades now, since our children were little. So would I even remember how to do this I wondered?

I borrowed my son’s ski pants and bundled up warm, feeling like a child at heart and handed my iPad to my husband showing him how to use the camera to take a few photos.

Out we went in the backyard with the outdoor light on. I was hoping that the neighbours weren’t watching because surely they would wonder what were we doing.

I let myself fall ever so gracefully (not) into the snow. It looks like the spot I chose was right in the middle of all the trails our dog had made.

It was easy to remember how to do snow angels after all.

Then the real laughing started. I didn’t know how I was going to get back up without wrecking my snow angel. There were no graceful ways to get up and out of that one. The more I tried, the deeper my back end sunk into the snow. My husband put the iPad in the house and came back out to help pull me out. I dug my heels in and he managed to pull me out without us making a disaster of my beautiful snow angel. It took several tries because we were both laughing so much. It was funny to see our dog in the house watching us with a puzzled look on his face, wondering what we were up to.

    One word: AWESOME! Let’s remember to let the child in us out once in a while. I love how you look sitting in the snow. It’s good for the soul, isn’t it?

  6. Had never heard of a snow angel before. (Never get snow here where I live in sunny Queensland, Australia.) Now I know and I love your spirit in making one for all of us to see. All the very best Suzanne.

  7. What a beautiful post with lovely pictures. I’ve never seen or made a snow angel but I have seen children making angels them in the sand.
