For a bit, we had snow.
I made a goal of seeing how many days in a row I could get out on my snowshoes.
Above: Friday the 9th. A lovely snow day with lots of fluff.
Saturday the 10th.
Brian came out with me - we took the same trail that I'd taken the day before. He gave snow running a shot.
Mark didn't snowshoe at all this week, but he did have fun in it regardless.
There were forts. And snow fights.
Sunday the 11th - we woke up to even more snow.
It took me nearly two hours to clear the drive and sidewalk while Greg took the boys to Sunday school.
After church and lunch, Brian and I headed up to our old elementary and took the path to the sand pit.
I don't let the kids come up here to play, as much as I'd love for them to be able to play in the woods. We often see signs of riff-raff when we do make the trek. One time there was even a guy living back here. On this day, we were the only ones, but the tracks clearly showed that someone had been here on foot the day before.
Wendy had a friend over Sunday. They did some Valentine baking - she brought most of the cupcakes to school.
Monday February 12th - I headed out behind the school after work. Something about this snow made this one the most vigorous workout of the week.
Tuesday: Day Five.
I nearly didn't go this day - I was exhausted, but I really was curious how many days in a row I could get out. We don't tend to keep our snow long in this part of the state.
I probably could have tried to get out for a day 6, but the weather was in the upper 40's by now and the snow was heavy. And I was tired.
- I don't see any snowshoeing possibilities in the ten day forecast. I do see a lot of rain.
- Tomorrow we have another archery tournament
- This weekend I'll be sitting here quite a bit - working on figuring out who I don't have pictures of yet for yearbook.
- And trying to figure out what is wrong with my camera. I was taking pictures after work today when I was no longer able to change the aperture. It's locked in at f/1.4, which just so happens to be my favorite - but not always the best.
- Step one is to figure out if it's the camera or the lens.
- I confess to spending some time this evening researching cameras. This camera is the Canon EOS 7D. I'm not positive how long I've had it.
- I was exhausted and lazy after work today. I'm pleased to have a three day weekend.
- I may even blog two days in a row.
