Day 3 and 12 more words! As you might have gathered, I choose a few of the words on the list to write about each day. If any of you have something to share about ANY of the words, feel free to do so in the comments! :)
Here's question for you: what is a toboggan? For 27 years, all I've known is that a toboggan looks like this:
All of a sudden, in the past month, I have heard 3 different people refer to stocking caps as toboggans. Naturally, that really confused me. A customer at the farmers' market told Hannah and me that he liked our toboggans. We just smiled and thanked him, and then turned to each other with a quizzical look on our faces. Heh. Googling turned up the fact that toboggan can be a Southern term for a winter hat. So....an informal poll of our readers - sled or hat?
The past few days we have had a couple of different winter storms move through our area. Yesterday we had 1-2 inches of snow in the morning, and I snapped a few pictures of the winter wonderland before it melted away in the afternoon sun. :) Well, at least MOST of it melted...the rest of the slush froze again in the 13 degree temperatures we had last night. There's nothing like a little snow to make it seem like Christmas time!
