Wash, Wash, Wash!

The outdoor holiday lights are down and put away for another year. I wisely chose to do it on the one warm day forecasted for this week. Boy, am I glad that’s done. These sub-zero temperatures of late are not the kind of weather I want to be out in if I absolutely don’t have to be.
The lost snow-blower key has been found. That most likely means it won’t snow enough to need the machine again. Funny how that goes.
My mother’s 95th birthday is coming up. She doesn’t want gifts, or visitors. That doesn’t leave many celebration possibilities beyond a card, flowers, and my presence. I sure hope the weather cooperates for the trip. I’ve experienced enough bad weather driving over the mountains to last a lifetime. I think I long ago passed the point of optimal driving skills on snow and ice.
I started a new class at the gym. Now, it didn’t kill me, but as I looked around at all of the people who are in that class and older than me, I realized how important it is to keep active on a regular basis. My occasional snow-shoeing excursion (which I dearly love) isn’t enough. Speaking of which, I recently got in a great snow-shoe hike to Molly Lake up near Red Feather. Now that I know where to go, I plan to do the many wonderful trails up there as often as possible. Love it!
The kids are back in school. Life has returned to its normal, non-holiday routine. Now, the goal is to get the taxes done, and try not to catch the flu. That last one is a tall order considering how the epidemic is spreading. Wash your hands friends, and get plenty of sleep.
