That Fluffy Snow!

on January 13, 2018

Happy weekend! Popping in to say hello since I missed you yesterday…

The husband and I were lucky enough to end up with Brooke’s cold…thanks, kid 😉 So we are currently sneezing and sniffly and all things awesome. Blech! But alas, we will take a cold. The flu can go ahead and stay away. Maybe we will just hide out at home for the next month 😛

We woke up yesterday morning to some actual awesome snow!! FINALLY…about a foot of fluffy white goodness!!!

It was like a sea of white…and we LOVE it.

Since the husband had to go to work, that left me to work on moving the snow.

Standing on a step…there should be a drop below, but the snow was all the way up to the top. Yes!

The wind was blowing pretty good, so I dressed for the elements. Super sexy snow moving attire.

I got about an hour and a half of plowing/blowing in before the kid insisted that I be done. I only got the quad stuck once…maybe time to put the chains on that baby.

And then you could walk and drive again!

It was definitely not a perfect job, but since it was Friday I knew the husband could clean it up over the weekend (and actually, he did it when he got home!). Only took about 20 minutes and we are ready for more snow!

Brooke set up a tea party while I was outside. The kid isn’t really into baby dolls, but she sure does love her animals!

I managed to get out for 3 miles….so close to that 80k! Only 8 more miles to fit in this weekend. Must.finish.now.

The run was so not pretty. I was not motivated since I was day 1 of said cold, my legs are tired. So tired. The road was a mixture of slush/mud where the plow had gone too deep and solid ice with a layer of fresh snow over the top. The wind was blowing and then snow started pelting me in the face. There were packages in the mailbox that I hadn’t expected and had to run the last half a mile with….all the excuses! BUT, I got out there and logged 3 easy miles that I am happy that I am not having to do in the next two days 🙂

Even my watch is telling me to take a break! Always good when your miles have gone up and your fitness has gone down. Really looking forward to a few days on the bike to recover from the sudden up in running miles!

Have I mentioned that I am in LOVE with my Garmin Fenix. OMG. I am pretty sure that it is smarter than I am!

Post-death march (I mean run), I thought it would be fun to hop in an epsom salt bath…pulling at any string here to make it through the last few days…I got it all set up and within seconds, Brooke was naked and hopping in with me. So much much for relaxing.

It is currently lightly snowing here and I am hoping to get out in the next hour for about 4 miles. Going to see how it feels, but 4 is the goal! And then maybe a nap 😉

A couple of random Friday faves (a day late)…

My mom sent Brooke this book and it is adorable! Brooke is OBSESSED with dinosaurs and she loved it.

And I am loving this…I have had it for several months, but since it has been so dry here I have finally started using it. It just feels nourishing when you put it on and has helped me make it through all of the tough outside miles. Highly recommend it!

All right…time to get the weekend going! Hope you have a great one!
