Our life living off the land in our log cabin, breathing fresh mountain air, and getting back to basics.

Snow Play

It's thrilling to have enough snow to play in it...keeps a person young!  So we bundled up in lots of layers and headed out.  This is my snow angel...have to make that first before jumping on the sled, this way I have a guardian angel looking out for me while I speed along on my sled...I forgot to roll my head side to side so her head is tiny, my shoes scraped the ground, and once I was down there I couldn't figure out how to get back up without putting my hands down (no doubt the lack of this ability has something to do with my body acting my age), but I think she looks pretty darn good.  I tried to make a snowman, but the snow wouldn't stick together...I'll try again tomorrow.

This is me and my toboggan...a gift from my brother Roger, who would love to be here with his daughter Jeanni playing with us...so I'm taking everyone on a toboggan ride...
...this is our path...
...I hung my camera around my neck so you could feel like you are right there...if you receive my posts via email you may need to click on title of this post to get to my web site to view this...ready???
Did you enjoy that?  I did!  I did it so many times I busted the bottom of the toboggan...this is what they make duct tape for, right?

Johny used our sled because it was easier to steer.  I preferred the speed of the toboggan.  It worked out well for us because we could each keep making runs rather than having to take turns!  

Despite all our layers, our hands and feet were getting cold, so we decided play time was over (for now).  As we headed back to the cabin, I spotted this handsome Robin filling up on berries...he kept hopping from one branch to another, almost as if to be sure I could get a good picture.  A perfect ending to fun in the sun and snow!

I hope you enjoyed your toboggan ride!

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,

I envy your ride down . . . not your walk up!

Looks like you kids had a ball!

LOVED my toboggan ride! Now that's the way to do it, all warm and toasty in my computer chair! :-) But with the excitement of that downhill run. Great stuff!
