I woke up this morning to open the door to piles of the white stuff. Just seems like yesterday or at least a few days back I was sitting on the porch feeling the sun on my face and feeling utter and complete delight in the season change. Psyche, winters back. Navars idea he says “let’s go skiing” I said “OK” I figured I’d call his bluff. He said “Really?” I said “how fast can you change?” Faster than you could say “where’s the sun?” Amazing really I haven’t been cross-country skiing in two years. I can’t believe I found my skis, gators, mittens and boots in no time flat. I did leave without my poles, but you don’t get very far without your poles so I had to turn around and go back into the house to get them. Something about skiing down town to get the mail is pretty cool. The temp wasn’t bad 33 degrees a bit of a biting wind I could feel my ears get pretty cold. I was glad to take my skis off and walk into the post office. Reading over the mail warming up a bit, Navar said “you want to go to lunch? “Sure why not” so we glide down a half a block to the one bar/restaurant and split a burger and order two cups of coffee with hot chocolate. The owners Mom served us lunch and his dad was vacuuming they both told us stories of their travels across the country in an RV, they just got back. Hearing about their journey as she called it, made lunch that much more enjoyable. Filled up on food and skied back home in no time. I would have to say that goes under the category of That was SO much fun. I hope that your weekend has moments of Joy what ever you may find yourself doing. Unexpected moments of Joy are always welcomed. If you are celebrating Easter or Passover enjoy. Hopefully we are in the last throes of winter.
