Yes, I’ve decided to keep going with my photo a day project into a new year. I like being able to look back at the little everyday moments that would otherwise get lost.
Monday, January 1: Still holiday crowds about (with a different vehicle than last week blocking my garage when I woke up) and no new snow, so I didn’t ski, but I did walk down to the village with Mr. Karen to get our mail. He spotted someone’s New Year’s lantern come back to earth, now trash. We put it in the appropriate receptacle when we go to one.
Wednesday, January 3: Went down to town and grabbed coffee with someone I hope will become part of my friend group. I was delighted to find a yellow and orange car section to park in.
Thursday, January 4: Accomplishment of the day: going through my stack of catalogs and magazines and sending almost 4 and a half inches of them to recycling.
Friday, January 5: For some reason, I tend to forget to wear my handknit socks, so today I made an effort to remember and pulled out these happy striped ones. They’re as warm and thick as my hiking socks, so definitely suited for a trip to town.
Saturday, January 6: Finally getting some serious snow. This particular storm left about 16 inches before it tapered off in the evening.
Sunday, January 7: All the new snow meant more lifts open, like the triple on the front side (shown below).
