By the time we reached Clapham Common station, the streets and common were covered by 1.5 inches of snow. For the most part this winter has been very mild in London, however, I was secretly hoping for one and only one snow day. Glad it happened over the weekend for all of us to enjoy.
We're also pet-sitting for a couple friend of ours who is back on the East Coast for pleasure and business. Their dog, a ginger mixed breed named Haile, is the sweetest dog ever and so well-trained. She's very easy-going, gentle, and a lot of fun. I'm a big dog lover so I am absolutely delighted to watch Miss Haile for the next two weeks. I love her adorable face; somehow she always has this confused puppy look. We've been taking her on long walks around the Clapham area, and even took her to our favourite pub on Northcote Road called the Draft House where we got the chance to catch up with another couple friend who just returned from a month-long trip to Thailand and Vietnam, and of course to introduce them to our houseguest, Haile.
This morning Keenan and I woke up early for some fun in the snow with Haile. I brought my Nikon along to take some picturesque photos although it was a bit foggy this morning. Kids on sleds, little snowmen, and dogs filled the snow-covered common. Haile enjoyed the snow as much as we did, frolicking around with other dogs - a big sloppy Golden Retriever who desperately wanted to play catch and two black Labradors came around to say hello. Enjoy the fun photos below.
Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Still wish it was the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl. They had an amazing comeback season so maybe next year.
