real snow, actually

in yesterday's mail 
a book for hannah from kate and
this for me!
 seriously amazing tiny stitching:
 like fairy fingers 
made this pouch
 even the wrapping paper
 is handmade
(will surely be spun up for shifu)
so this morning at 7
 there was a bit of snow
 as daylight emerged
 it's apparent
 that some serious
 work with shovel and daughter
is necessary for an elder
border collie 
to find her way through.
(and the postman to find the mailbox)
and it's still snowing.
