This morning when I went out to feed the animals, I steped out onto the porch as was about bowled over by that crazy feeling of deja vu.
Something about the smell of my somewhat musty cold weather gear and the crisp cold air is what triggered it.
The deja vu/memory was of skiing in AK when I was a kid.
For a second there I could almost feel the icy wind on my chapped cheeks as I raced down the mountain.
Was an incredible feeling!
Probably the last time I went skiing was the year before Colton was born, so about 22 years ago.
I remember going to Arctic Valley most when I was a kid.
In elementary school we took classes there and learned to ski.
Ride the bus to school, they'd do a head count and we'd get on another bus and ride to the mountain to spend all day skiing.
It was great!
The most fun was going to Alyeska to ski!
Last time I went to Alyeska was with six friends for night skiing - incredible.
Course I've been thinking about skiing all day.
There is a place not too far from here that we could go skiing at.
Course we currently have no snow.
Looks like this place Christie Mountain makes their own though and is planning on a December 7th opening.
Have to think on this for a bit.
Also wouldn't mind getting some crosscountry skis too.
Would be fun to cruise the snowmachine trails, not to mention great exercise.
In other news...
I'm back to work and the work is piled up high.
No OT for me this week though since I had monday off and would have to do 8 straight time extra hours befor they'd pay OT wages.
Nope, not for me.
I might on Sunday since that is the beginning of the new pay period.
Yes, I've got this figured out lol
Picture of Casper.
Poor guy had some diareaah last weekend.
I think he was eating junk he shouldn't have been.
Like trees, fences and nibbling on the side of the barn.
It was hard to get his back side cleaned up and dry with it being so cold out.
Glad he is over whatever it was that gave him the runs.
Happy Humpday :)
