Another Week (or Two)

on April 28, 2020

Howdy! How’s it going?? Days continue to pass by over here-we are keeping busy and finding ways to have fun. The weather has finally started to feel like Spring, so we are taking advantage of being outside and beginning the never ending list of summertime chores and projects.

Rewind to about 2 weeks ago (and a nice little snow storm)-I was moving some firewood over to the house and ended up with company. These guys escaped from our neighbor’s house and decided to visit. They are so stinking cute, but I was a little nervous being so outnumbered. Luckily, I was able to herd them back up to the road and they meandered homeward.

Thinking (hoping?) that this was the last big snowstorm of the season. Not mad that it has all melted off at this point ๐Ÿ˜‰

I wish I could just melt into the bed, too. Jasper knows how to do nap time!

Brooke has been enjoying some quality dress up time. Snow or no snow, it is always Moana time!

We were looking for a fun project, so we got started on some seed planting.

This is how Brooke asks to go in the hot tub. She has some art skills, that’s for sure.

Full blown mood- headed out to search for dinosaur bones.

We got to attend my niece’s birthday party (she lives in California) on a Zoom call. It was a lot of fun. A little overwhelming, but they did a scavenger hunt and a couple of other games. Brooke thought it was great.

Ken and I set out for a quick 3 mile jog after the party. It ended up pellet snowing on us-so painful! We were pretty much frozen when we got home!

I like where Brooke’s thoughts are….tropical sounds pretty good.

Pretty excited to see the daffodil bulbs in the kitchen popping up! SPRING!

Brooke has been spending time out in the shop with Ken in the evenings after he gets home from work. I am pretty sure it is the best part of her day.

Melting off!

Not sure who was driving at this point: Ken or Brooke.

Crafting together her birthday list. There are a lot of Legos on there.

This past weekend, we ventured out to a local trail. Brooke hiked 4 miles with us and absolutely crushed it. She did so good and had a great time. Hoping there is a lot more of this to come this year!

Jasper pretty much had the best time ever.

Yesterday, I spent the day pulling down all of our snow fences. Ken has been working like crazy so we have been trying to get things done around the outside of the house. We are *hopefully* going to start the footing for my greenhouse this weekend. I cannot wait!

Workouts are going fine. Mainly easy miles of running outside and riding in the basement. I miss outside. Hopefully soon. I have been doing a Strava Challenge and working towards 100 run miles for the month of April-I have 2.2 miles left so I plan to knock those out today! Brooke has been LOVING her bike recently, so I sneak in miles with her when she rides.

Other than that, not a whole lot going on. I need to go to the grocery-we need some fresh fruit and veggies-but it is challenging trying not to take Brooke and Ken working-guess I will aim for the weekend!

Hope you are doing well and staying active!

    Hi LeeAnn –

    Doesn’t sound like your life has changed too drastically because of all of this … do you feel like it has? I know my family is talking about heading to our mountain home in the next week or two for the summer if the stay at home orders are extended in MN because we don’t agree with them and we’d just appreciate the fresh air for a while. How have the stores been in Steamboat? Well stocked or are they pretty empty? Do you guys frequent the local restaurants at all? Do you think your race will be cancelled in the fall?

      Hi Lindsay! We are pretty lucky that things have not changed too much for us. Not sure what that says about our pre-pandemic lives ๐Ÿ˜‰
      The rules in Steamboat have been fairly strict, but looks like things will slowly be opening up a bit. You have to wear masks in the stores (but when we were out hiking last weekend, we just wore buffs around our necks and there was plenty of space that no one had them on their faces. The stores have been pretty good. Initially, there were shortages and occasionally they will be out of something random, but for the most part, they have been good. The restaurants have been doing curbside pick up and delivery (honestly that is typically my preference anyway), but the food has been great that we have gotten.
      No idea on the race at the current moment. I guess it will depend how things go over the next month. If it was small, I would say it would probably be fine but with 4000+ people between racers and families, not sure what that will look like come August. Luckily, running and riding are still very much open and the weather is becoming more gorgeous by the day!
