NT 7/31: Snow can wait

I didn't grow up on the East Coast, so I never experienced many wintertime childhood rituals (well, some I did). Drawing inspiration from my beloved Calvin and Hobbes, as well as from the six inches of snow we had this morning, I made a snowball and put it in the freezer. I'm hoping it will keep; I don't have the world's coldest freezer, but as long as it at least keeps some discernible snowball shape, I should be able to accomplish my eventual goal of throwing a snowball in the summer.

Here's where I got the snow:

Here's where the snowball will live until June:

I have to ask...why is there a sneaker in the freezer??

Jackie said...

I was wondering the same thing about the sneaker!

What a great new thing!

Anne said...

Me too!

Chewing gum?

Melinda said...

Good luck with the snowball. Is there a story behind the shoe?

We once froze a large bucket of snow balls and had a snowball fight in July.
