The week before Christmas
Thursday, December 17, 2015
I seemed to have lost track of the days this week . . . it IS only Thursday.... right?
After several years of no real Winter, guess what? It's making up for lost time.
It's been raining like crazy. No complaints here.... we really need it.
And better than that, there mountains are getting snow!!! Ski lodges and snow parks are open! Crater Lake has more snow than it has had in years . . . . still a long ways below normal at this point, however.
Thinking about the snow in the mountains has brought back a lot of really cool memories of when I had a kennel of Siberian Huskies. And they loved the snow. When it started getting cold, they'd start howling. More than anything else, they loved to run in the snow . . . so we did the whole sled dog team thing... it was so awesome. I really miss them.
But I have to admit, it's a lot easier taking care of (and cleaning up after) this little guy who loves to play 'find the yorkie'
While the weather outside is frightful, I've been busy inside. I'm making my own personal challenge list -- and checking it twice -- because I want next year to be my best year yet. I've added several fitness targets for each week, being realistic, while giving myself a stretch.
One week till Christmas . . . hard to believe. Are you ready?
