Where do the days go?

I'm still trying to figure out what exactly I did from last Monday to today?!

On Friday, Toni came down and met me for lunch!!! It was so great to see her – it had been since before Christmas! We IM just about every day but I miss hearing her great accent!! She brought me a bunch of goodies, including some ATC’s she’s made (some for our challenge), a CJ, a stamp for the back of my ATC’s, and lots of other goodies to try out!! I love when I see her, it’s always like Christmas! I really wish I could have spent more time with her but work was calling me back.

On Friday evening we went up to the mountains for another weekend of skiing! Need to get in some more days before our trip because you never know what conditions we'll come back to in late March, early April! I booked a last minute condo. That experience was painful - I lost 4 different opportunities before ending back up with the first one. It was a sparse but comfortable condo in Dillon and served our purpose well.

Saturday we went to Breckenridge to ski with some of Dan's friends and Moira. It was snowing but at least it wasn't miserably cold this time! We had fun on Peak 7 and 9! I love the rolling hills on Peak 7! I had the opportunity to ski backwards and didn’t even fall!!! It wasn’t on purpose, but I did manage to go quite a distance! Despite my knee cracking every turn, I felt pretty good until the very last run… I stopped to pick up a pole for a skier who lost it and twisted my knee even worse. I made it down the hill and limped around the rest of the night. We had a nice dinner at the Breckenridge Brewery with our friends and then headed back to the condo for a quiet evening.

On Sunday we went off to Keystone to ski getting there right as they opened the lifts! It was still snowing but a little bit warmer! The first run was painful but after I got through that one, my knee seemed to stretch out and was bearable for the rest of the day! We didn’t ski all day, quitting early to beat the traffic home. That was a great plan since a huge storm was rolling in and traffic later was a total mess.

Today I got to work from home – a little change from my normal schedule. It’s always nice when I can work from home. I can get so much done and not spend any time traveling!!! That means more time to blog and scrap! Tonight I’m going to try and get a CJ finished. I realized I have 2 weeks before our trip to get a lot of projects done! It’s definitely possible, I just need to crack the whip on myself!!

Hope everyone is having a good week so far… thanks for visiting!

16 days to London....

Sounds like you had a relaxing & productive weekend. Glad the knee held out! There's nothing worse than skiing on a bad knee.....enjoy your week!
