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!
