Fresh air can do a wonder for your soul, even if it is cold air. My girls ended up staying overnight at my parents house last night, because I thought they were going to have a snow day and I was going to have to work. About 30 minutes after getting in the yard last night I found out my school district was cancelled, too. Since they already had big plans with Grandma they ended up staying even though I was going to be home.
They got plenty of snow day fun in at Grandma’s.
And I did, too. My cross country skis were accumulating dust! While, I didn’t have nice groomed trails to go on, I had something better! Our acreage!
Yes, you can see that I have no make up on, other than last night’s mascara. Sorry! Hope I didn’t scare you. 😉 You know what I realized when I was out in our small woods skiing? It is beautiful and for some reason I notice it’s beauty more in the winter. The girls enjoy playing in the trees, especially when it snows, because it makes a little canopy. I went in deeper to explore where they typically play. It was so still and quiet, nothing but a few rabbits and a bird and
me huffing and puffing.
I felt so great when I finished, I was only skiing for maybe 40 minutes, but it was so good for my soul to get some fresh air, slow down and enjoy our acreage. It is something I don’t do nearly enough.
Did you have a snow day? What is your favorite winter activity?
