Yesterday we had the biggest snow fall of the year: at least a foot, with lots of blowing. Everything was pretty much shut down and the staff went home early. I worked till about 6 pm, got stuck in the driveway. DH managed to lock himself out of the office, had to take a taxi home! Then, once he'd done his magic with the snowblower, he and I drove back together in my car to lock up properly and rescue his car . . . so it was a long day.
This morning, clear blue skies and glorious sparkling. We got out on our cross country skis . . . it was actually very heavy going, the snow so powdery and no track cut so little kick/glide. But: incredibly beautiful. And I'm positive I burned a whack of calories!
Laundry and groceries done, lovely dinner of baked chicken, rosemary potatoes, brussels sprouts, carrots and apple crisp (sometimes I do manage to get a little domestic!!) and there will be soup making tomorrow.
Also: more skiing!!
