Exceptionally Beautiful Day Two!!

Sunday, February 10, 2013

Can it be "exceptionally beautiful" if the beautiful weather is extended for two days in a row?

Don't know . . . but I just enjoyed every minute of it.

Clear blue sky, sparkling snow, and even better skiing conditions than yesterday: kick, glide, groomed trail, whoosh whoosh!

We stopped afterwards at the club for a quick lunch (soup for DH, spinach salad for me) and considered more skiing . . . but really, we can't improve on perfection and round one was an incredible workout. Left both of us soaking wet!!

DH had lost a dress glove so on the way home we stopped and picked him up two pairs on sale 40% off: one for skiing (his were worn out) and a very nice sheepskin pair. (Not his Valentine's Day present, however: I'd already taken care of that!!)

Tomorrow we're scheduled for +6C and rain: hard to believe. But the temperature rose from -20C when we got up to -1C by the time we'd finished lunch and shopping. I'm reminded once again, we have to grab the good times as a top priority when they are available!!

The sky has clouded over . . . we should have a glorious sunset. I've got a huge pot of chicken chili salsa soup made before our ski, and now it's time to make salad for lunch for tomorrow.

Simple pleasures.

    Snow makes only the briefest of appearances 'round these parts anymore...zooming up to near 50 F here today...bye bye snow! :-(

    It is nice that storms tend to clean the air, making it fresh and vibrant. Glad you were able to get out and enjoy it.

    So wonderful to hear someone is having great weather and getting out there and enjoying!! Our temps have gone up too, had a nasty high wind at night it so it was cold and blowing snow on my walk to the club, but settled down so my walk home was nice, hated being cooped up in the club from 8am until 7 pm on kitchen prep and then club clean up after playing bridge for two sessions. I am too old for this stuff. Then again, so are most of the volunteers :P I am one of the youngest!!
Hope it doesn't rain for you. That would make everything so icy when it freezes.
Have a great week!

    Way to make use of your weekend! Both days sound marvelous. emoticon

I'm all full of endorphins from my emoticon , too, so totally identified with the "great workout" covered in sweat note. Funny how quickly we become "hooked" on the active life.

    Yes, we do have to enjoy the good times (and good weather) when we have it. Your chicken chili sounds wonderful! I can almost smell it from here.

    Here in New England where we got hit by the big snowstorm Friday and Saturday, we woke up to a beautiful day too! Sun was shining, snow was glistening, and we headed out with our shovels and brushes to clean up the driveway and the cars. emoticon
