Serenity of Winter

By , February 1, 2010 at 9:29 pm

I was just complaining about how long winter is getting and then this afternoon for just a few hours there was a beautiful, calm snowfall. I love it. I love the serenity of falling snow. Mikey and I watched it for a while (David was napping) and talked about going out, but never did. Mostly because underneath that thin layer of new fallen snow there are a few feet of ice. Playing in it really isn’t an option for now. I need to be better at enjoying the outdoors in wintertime. We did go out a few times this season. You might have even seen the video posted (on the right side bar) of our sledding adventure. I have to admit that the older I get, the more petrified I’ve been getting. Maybe it just has to do with my maternal instincts or something but Dan persuaded me to climb up this steep hill with Mikey and have a go. As much as I wanted to enjoy the exhilarating rush, after reaching the top I couldn’t get myself to go much faster than a turtle’s pace. I barely lifted my feet up. I just couldn’t do it. I imagined Mikey and I bouncing off some bump and crashing into the trees if I went any faster. Maybe it had to do with my watching a news clip the previous night about some kids getting concussions while sledding because the hills were so icy. I don’t know. But I know I never believed I would become such a scaredy-cat.

You may have noticed my lack of regular posting, so I have to admit that I frequently get swallowed up in the internet world once I get inside.  I’m trying to stop getting swallowed up.  But I have managed to finally post some good eats we’ve had for dinners over the past few months in the posts below.  Yummm, good food.  You should try some…

    That is exactly how I felt when we went snowmobiling over the weekend. All I could think about was all of the snowmobile accidents I’ve heard of. I guess most of those accidents also included alcohol, but I was still nervous. After my ride I could feel the adrenaline coursing through my arms and shoulders. What a scaredy cat!
