First Real Snow of 2018

We had our first real snow over the weekend. Technically it snowed last Wednesday and Leighton came tearing down the stairs at 6:30 all excited about the dust of snow that he saw out the window, but the first actual snow came over the weekend. It started Saturday night after it had been 65 just…

An Afternoon In The Snow…

On our way home from church yesterday Leighton asked “When can we go up to the mountains and walk around a lake or something again?”. Clint and I looked at each other and knowing that we had nothing planned for the afternoon decided that we’d go then. We got home and quickly ate lunch and…

First Snow Day 2017

We’ve actually had a couple of snows already this season but Tuesday was the first day that we had more than just a dusting of snow. And along with the snow quite a drop in temperature. Edric has recently fallen in love with riding his bike and so while it was 25 degrees outside and…

Pushing through

And here I sit. Less than 2 weeks to go from my ½ marathon. Same ½ marathon Clint and I have run for the past 4 years together. I know the course. I dread mile 10 and the hill. It’s probably not really that big of a hill but in my mind it’s roughly the…

Snow Day

Last Tuesday was going to be “one of those days”. You know the ones, where everything under the sun got scheduled all on the same day? I knew it was coming and it was going to be a mad dash all day long. Here is what my schedule looked like…. 5:15AM-get up and go run…

Garden is In!….And Possibly Drowning

So I didn’t quite make my “in by Mother’s Day” rule for getting my garden it. Because it was snowing. On May 10th. Snowing. I was suppose to run my Mom’s Day race that AM and get my garden planted that afternoon. But it was snowing. So the race got cancelled and I didn’t plant…

Sometimes You Just Need To Sled

Life gets busy. Life gets crazy. There are good times and there are bad times, but every now and then you just need the chance to get away and be disconnected from it all. My Aunt Mary has a cabin kind of in the middle of nowhere Colorado that is great. Phones don’t work, there…

So About That Snow…

So I may have complained that we weren’t getting enough snow a little too early. February went from having temps in the 60s to suddenly becoming the snowiest February we’ve ever had, and the beginning of March hasn’t slowed the snow down at all. And that daffodil that I had taken a photo of popping…

So It Seemed Like a Great Idea….

It really did. At least before I started out. I had had a wonky work schedule for a few days and was finally off Thursday morning and the weather was nice. I thought it was a great morning for a run. I’m hard pressed to find a day when it’s not a great day for…

Winter or Spring?

So it’s February. And I have daffodils coming up. In February. Something is so wrong with this picture. Don’t get me wrong, I love spring time. REALLY love spring time. But I kind of think that spring should happen in spring. NOT in February. Because I figure that if it is trying to be spring…
