Winter Wonderland – XC Skiing #1 of 2016

We got out skiing at Battle Creek Regional Park on this fine New Years Day.  We went because it’s a known place to use the pulk, but then we messed up and took the intermediate trails – with hills! – instead of our usual green route.  We lived to tell the tale, but the pulk now needs some work.

This morning we went with friends to a huge brunch gathering at Psycho Suzi’s.  I love that brunch (brown sugar babies, anyone?).  Today was a microcosm of how I’d like my life to more frequently be.  The house is under control, feels good even.  We went with friends, we were active.  We didn’t overdo it.  We weren’t focused on stuff – buying/selling/cleaning/organizing/etc.  A great way to kick off the year!

The family skiing at Battle Creek Regional Park. After we put the phone away Bryce took off and tripped me with the pulk. Baby crying, mama on ground, and I think a broken pulk as a result!

Antiquing in Stillwater

Today’s adventure was antiquing in Stillwater.  We bought a new olive oil sprayer, pan scraper, drinks for each of us at the co-op, a kiddie cone at Nelson’s (threw about a third of it away! – they are known for their gigantic portions) and had a lovely visit with a friend.  We hit Valu Thrift on the way home, no big news there!  A beautiful day in a sweet town.
