Free soup? Yes, please!

It was actually posole, but close enough ;-) Thank you Luchador Tacos. See you in the spring!

There's no place more peaceful than the woods during a snowstorm, especially after dark. I needed some peace this evening.

Oxford Hills Tech Challenge

This year he didn't compete, but was asked to judge the projects done by the younger students. He also demonstrated the work that he has done on the robot that his brother started building a couple of years ago. Pre-engineering has been such a great class for my boys!

We found snow!

It took some searching since most of the trails were ruined by last week's rain, but we managed to get them a run on a 6 mile loop this afternoon!

Sea to Summit

I finally put together all our 'bling'. Those were 2 great races, and I'm so glad that we were able to run them together!

Old Calendar

Several years ago Aunt Margie gave me this dish towel from the year I was born. It hangs on a wall in my kitchen. Last night my son noticed that this year the days match!

Before the rain...

I figured if the weather is going to be half as bad as they're predicting this weekend, then I needed to play in this beautiful snow one more time today!

I always keep my skis in the car (along with my skates and snowshoes!) just in case I have a chance to use them, and I was able to squeeze in a quick 2 mile ski 😁 Yay! I wasn't exactly dressed appropriately, but who cares?
It was a helluva workout. Climbing the hills at Roberts Farm is always humbling, but the weather was perfect, the trails were gorgeous, and the scenery can't be beat!

Despite yucky sidewalks...

I managed to not slip! And got in another 2 mile walk at lunchtime. I might be out of my slump!

Thanks for the invite!

It's always nice to squeeze in a walk at lunchtime, and even better to visit!

Kitty Whisperer

This time of year they are staying indoors and therefore feeling cooped up and grumpy. They keep fighting, so they need to keep their distance. However, they have figured out a way to each get some love without getting too close to each other!
