Craftaway a Sunday - Let It Snow

Can't you just picture the morning when this photo of my Dad was taken? It has likely snowed heavily the night before and he awoke to a bright morning, perfect for skiing AND sledding (notice he is prepared for both). He likely had to break the ice from the top of the water basin when he awoke in the old farmhouse and run quickly across the cold floor for his clothes but the kitchen was warm and he ate his breakfast quickly so that he could escape outside. This is my entry for this week's Craftaway a Sunday challenge.
