Going the Distance

  1. ... continued from last night

    Snowshoeing always seems like a really fun way to get around in the snow, Kelly. But having enough snow to do it in the first week of December ... not so much.

    It's not great, Janet, but it is a lot of fun. I'd like to see it done with much better production values.

    Hi Beth! Welcome, home. Bye Beth! Have a good trip.

  2. Hi Andi! Thanks, Andi! On my way out the door - yawn. Three weeks from today, I'll be home. And will focus on that. More from CA...

  3. Hi/bye, Beth!!

    I semi-envy the pretty snow that Kelly has, but am happy to still wallow in my favorite temperature range (50s/60s). I do hear winter is headed our way, though.

    I am cautiously optimistic about December. So far, these 5 days have beaten the crap out of the last 6 months...well, year. I got my car back. I got good news at the doc. I got paid. I've been sleeping without meds.

    I count all of the above as a huge win.

    Janet, fingers crossed that you get a dx soon. The toughest part is the not knowing. I empathize greatly.

    Off to the mimes for another fun-filled day! I did get a lot done yesterday and the time flew by. Don't know what's on the plate for today's offering. :)


  4. Hi/Bye Beth! Andi, did you title your post to commemorate Beth's current trip?

    Most of the cold seems to have now concentrated itself in my throat. I'm going to risk the mimes today. Mason sounds better, so that's a good sign. So here's my wordy drive-by…

  5. Hi, all.

    Farf, hope you have a healthy house soon.

    Beth, travel safely and come home soon.

    Maria, yeah for December - hope it holds.

    Janet - getting the diagnosis is half the battle. Hope it happens soon.

    Andi, love this picture. But then I love storms.

    Off to the eye doctor for routine checkup.

  6. Andi, the funny thing is that I feel that not having enough snow to snowshoe until now, and that only barely is a travesty of winter. Love the cloud-cover shot, makes me think of childhood in North Dakota.

    Beth, welcome home, however briefly. I hope that you have another nice trip and a lovely homecoming after. For me half the joy of travel is in the return to home afterward.

    Maria, I love that weather too, but I'm always happy when real winter arrives too. There are so many fun things to do in the snow.

    FarF, sending you get better vibes. I'm debating whether the best bet for the cold that is dancing around the edges of my sinuses is to hide out in the warm and drink hot chocolate, or to go for a long snowshoe to force my core temperature up to inhospitable levels.

    Dina, hello and good luck with the check up.

    Smiles and waves for all who come after.

  7. Sounds like a good month, Maria. Hope it continues right on through the rest of the month and into the new year.

    I'm going to claim I did, Farf, because it makes me seem much cleverer than I am. :)

    It looked mean, Dina, but it didn't do anything ... which was fine by me (and Jim who was driving).

    So, Kelly, what you're telling me is that I should definitely never move any farther north.
