Ski Day

 We finally got out for a big cross country ski yesterday and it was so invigorating.  The thing about cross country skiing is that it's such good exercise it's easy to warm up fast, we forget that we're freezing to death and we just enjoy the snow and the forest!
 Our route took us through open fields and in and out of forests.
 I really love skiing into a forest after being out in a flat, open field.  It feels like entering a majestic treed house.
In the forest.
That's MrBP up ahead.


 I find old farm implements so beautiful, especially when they're covered with a fresh, heavy snow.
Our ski ended after a swoosh through a cedar forest with some beautiful, giant trees, all hanging heavy with snow.  We thought they rather looked like Ents!
Have a really lovely Sunday,

  5. So absolutely magical! I showed Max and he says you are so lucky! I love the quiet of being out in the snow. How cold is it there Dani? We are finally back to winter temps here after being in the 70s and 80s for two plus weeks, which is not normal.

    1. Kim we are fortunate it's really beautiful. The key with winter is to embrace it, going outside is a must or it's easy to get depressed. But it can be difficult when it's cold. I think it's about -12 today. It always feel colder with the wind chill though. Oh boy 70's and 80s, sounds dreamy. I think if I ever went to California I wouldn't want to come home! xx
