Monday Cables || What I've Been Up To

I've been up to the mountains!

Sorry for skipping out on Friday. I started a post Thursday but never finished it because the past week has been pretty busy and I went skiing Friday. I planned today to share a post that I prepared yesterday, but I am still out and about and forgot to bring along the computer so I guess I'll just share a few pictures of me skiing, well, standing on the slopes.

This first picture is actually on a little pond and just looked cool with the invasive phragmites. It felt very safari like, except for the cold, the snow, and the fact that I've never been on a safari. This was actually taken a couple of months ago and has absolutely nothing to do with skiing.

Now, here is a picture of me smiling on a ski trip on March 8th. It was my second official trip. Let me just say...there were a lot of literal ski trips during this ski trip. I just picked myself up and kept going. I started the blue square (intermediate slopes) that day.

And this picture is from March 22nd, the 5th time I went skiing. My husband used to ski a lot and, after a roughly 10 year break, he found all the ski equipment we needed to start this year by the end of the season. Hence the several trips in a short time. It's been fun, but boy, it has been pretty difficult too! I think I started skiing black diamonds this day. Very, very slowly. I just go back and forth across the slope to get down instead of just barreling straight down the mountain!

  1. This looks like fun! :) I'm glad you guys didn't sustain any real injuries. ;P
    I like your description of the "safari"! Imaginations are funny like that. :)

    1. It is SO much fun! Paige, you almost spoke too soon about injuries...I went skiing for the last time this season and pretty much did a face plant/belly flop at the bottom of the hill when the edge of my ski caught the snow the wrong way. Everyone laughed, including me! I landed face down like a starfish. skis and poles all pointing outwards!

  2. Hi sweet Jill! Wow, I can't believe how many posts I have missed of yours...forgive me, my friend.

    I thoroughly enjoyed seeing what you have been up. Your wedding photos are simply beautiful and your dress.... oh my, what a work of art and beauty!

    Your braided scarf is just fabulous! I am a scarf girl so I will have to remember that idea :) And seeing you skiing made me smile. My dear dad had my on ski's by the age of 5 so it's something I love to do.

    Happy Thursday, dear one! Hugs!

    1. Thank you Stephanie! I don't expect everyone to keep up with each post. I know just posting a blog is pretty time consuming, then to add work and other duties on top of that, I can totally understand. I am glad, and appreciate it very much that you do take time out of your day to read these posts though! :)

      Skiing was a lot of fun this year even though we started late in the season. I'm looking forward to next winter, but I will certainly enjoy the warmer seasons beforehand.
