I found myself in a staycation with 2 feet of snow at home and more than 4 feet of powder in the mountains. And I had a free pass to Whiteface! So off I went to ski. The day was perfect, 27 degrees, sunny, light breeze. There may have been a few too many yahoos for my liking, due to a Canadian school holiday, but I found plenty of places to be on my own on the mountain. Basically I am a princess and conditions have to be just right. This was my first day downhill skiing of the season! Before it was too cold, too crowded, too windy, too icy.
I had progressed far enough on the baby blanket I am weaving to take a break.
The cardinals look like they have been having fun at our feeders and in the snow. The male’s vibrant red against the fresh snow is stunning. Red squirrels tunnel and burrow under the snow and jump from tree to tree.
Today I am too sore to play in the snow, the blanket is more than half way done and we are off to the opera! sort of. We’re actually going to see a live simulcast of La Traviata. It’s the best we can do here in the mountains.
