Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!
Well, I did it! I went skiing after a 28 year break between the last time I did it! I was well aware going into this that I am now 52 years
old young (it is a state-of-mind) and the last time I skied was before I had children! Since my oldest is now 26 years old I 'm guessing it has been about 28 years since the last time I skied, which means I was about 24 years old! I'm happy to report that it is like riding a bike and it all comes back very quickly! I imagined myself getting back on skis again and having it feel the same way but I was actually shocked that it did! The best part was that my muscles weren't even sore the next day!!! That is what surprised me the most! I guess hiking the hills around here is good ski conditioning! I had to share this photo because I wish you all could see the beautiful views skiing above Lake Tahoe! It is breath-takingly beautiful up there! I had so much fun I'm already planning another ski trip next month!
Since I just didn't want to share a photo of me, here is a mosaic I made of some of the favorite things around "My Romantic Home".
I hope you all had a wonderful January! Where did this month go? I guess it went just as fast as the last 28 years since I skied last! My mom always told me that your life goes by faster as you get older...she sure was right! That is the reason I'm getting out and enjoying it to the fullest these days! I hope you are too!
