January 24: Back to skiing. It’s nice to have a sunny day now and then so I can see where I’m going, especially after being off for a week like I was this time.
January 25: Look closely and you can see the snowshoe hare tracks out in back of my house.
January 26: Another wonderful day of skiing, with sunshine at the top and a cloud/fog layer lower down that moved around all day, which made for some interesting runs, as one never quite knew when visibility would close in or open up.
January 27: I’d had such a good day skiing the day before I decided to rest on those laurels and stay in today. I learned a new knot, the lamda, which quite fiddly but I like the looks of. Don’t know that I’m ever going to make anything with macrame, but I enjoy the process of tying and untying the knots, learning the patterns. It’s meditative, more so after I’ve got the pattern memorized, which I don’t know if I’m going to to with this one.
January 28: It was our mountain’s turn for Toyota Day, when anyone who shows up driving a vehicle in the Toyota family of products gets to ski for free. It gets crowded, so we chose to stay in (helped that there hasn’t been new snow in a while). I started my day with a leisurely spell on the couch, where my feet got too hot for my warmest slippers. In retrospect, I wish I’d moved the jeans that need mending out of the way before I documented the moment, but it’s more “real” this way. (displayed smaller than usual in deference to those of you who are squicked out by feet)
January 29: I went down to town and played with nail polish in the studio, but before that, I said goodbye to the last pack of Winterfresh flavor gum in the house. I’d bought a bunch when our grocery store had it in the “reduced for quick sale” section. Why “winterfresh” didn’t sell here, I’m not sure; seems like a perfect fit.
January 30: Buckled down and finished updating our financial records so I can pull together the information for our tax preparer. It felt good to check off each month for each account as I reconciled them to make sure I hadn’t missed recording any expenses.
