You'll Shoot Your Eye Out (028/365)

"Ralphie, you're lucky it didn't cut your eye! Those icicles have been known to kill people."

Ralphie's Mom, Mrs. Parker (A Christmas Story, Bob Clark - director, Melinda Dillon -  actress, 1983)

TIME: 3:57 PM
PLACE: The back porch
SUBJECT: Icicles

More snow fell overnight and we had another snow day today.  DramaQueen brought out the sled and took StellaDella for a ride around the yard.  The sun was out and shining all day and by this afternoon the icicles were starting to melt.  StellaDella wanted to eat one of the them, but I wouldn't let her.  I don't think they are as clean as they look.  I did end up cleaning two bathrooms and the master bedroom today, along with washing and folding several loads of laundry.  We also started painting DramaQueen's bedroom door with chalkboard paint.  I'm sure that will be another photo for the project!

Cool picture! I was trying to get a picture of my icicles yesterday but they weren't turning out. I'll have to try again.

Great photo. The theme of ice/cold/snow seems to be rampant. Just imagine what we'll be able to do when flowers and trees starting growing!

Great photo!!

Beautiful icicle shot. I tried to get a few of them yesterday but it was too dark when I got home. I am hoping to walk our backyard and get some pictures of the ice and snow!!
