“It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood” ~ Mr. Rogers
Today, I admit to my ski-aficionado group, that I’ve both enjoyed and had enough “adventure” for this first (operative word) ski-trip and I’d like to stay at the house and take in the unique tranquility that this sort of view offers and they should go on without me. So, I stay in, sleep in, tumblr-ize, squeak in some reading & cleaning just before the gang gets back. From there it’s all stove-top hot chocolate (I forgot it was ever made that way, including in my household growing up), recaps of the soreness and pain that today’s better mountain, snow and skiing conditions produced… Followed by packing, goodbye hugs and sincere “until next times!”
Not to mention, I officially fall in love with Vermont (and discover Woodpeckers are not purely fictional characters).
