Cabin Fever Excursions

As we approach the end of February, my cabin fever temperature continues to rise! To lower my homebound temperature and raise my spirits, we embarked on two road trips this past week. The first adventure was a true road excursion (with a short snowshoe… Continue Reading “Cabin Fever Excursions”

snowshoe Solitude

Plans to embark on a day-long road trip adventure today were sabotaged by unforeseen circumstances. Shifting gears to more homebound enterprises, I continued work on my quilt project and in the early afternoon took a break from sewing to get some fresh air. I… Continue Reading “snowshoe Solitude”

On our snowshoe yesterday we hiked part of the snowmobile trail and then veered off onto our neighbors lands so as to make a loop back to the house. I love trekking through these high-elevation farm fields. The open meadows afford a view that… Continue Reading “A Black and White Day”

Snowy Day

My husband and I took a hike back in the woods this morning in search of a potential Christmas tree. We did not really find one suitable enough – not surprising really – but we gave it a good try! Our first snowstorm of… Continue Reading “Snowy Day”
