Hi lovelies! I know I promised you mountain adventures yesterday, but the piles of boxes in the living room needed my immediate attention. Thanks to my friend Cameron they are now GONE, whisked away to thrift store, dump, and friends’ homes where they belong. What utter relief to have that done!!!
Now at last I can sit down and write to you dear folks. 🙂
After our jolly hike on crutches along the gorgeously raging Nooksack River, my friend Jenny and I drove high up into the mountains. It was a blazing hot day but, much to our delight, there was snow everywhere!!!
We opened our windows, breathing deeply of the amazingly fresh air filled with the scent of melting snow and pine trees. When we spotted sledders shrieking down the mountain side, we decided that was the perfect spot to pull over for a spot of lunch.
Jenny had made us scrumptious sandwiches of sun-dried tomato turkey with cheese and Dijon mustard, and we happily munched our way through them and a few handfuls of sugar snap peas. The sun felt so good and it was such fun watching the folks hollering and laughing their way down the mountain before rolling off their sleds and trudging back up the hill for another go.
Although I’d been brave enough to hike in my crutches, even I was not crazy enough to attempt navigating snow. But there was no way Jenny could be that close to snow and not at least touch it – even if she was in flip-flops! So off she went, skidding and sliding her way across the drifts, returning a bit later bearing a snowball for me so I could enjoy a bit of the cold stuff too. 🙂
Where do you like to go adventuring when you have a free day?
