Schwoop! (Silence) Thud

That is the sound I made last night as my skis left the snow and I was suspended for a brief moment and then I came down on my bottom. Wahoo!

M and I went skiing last night on a whim. It was lots of fun. At one point we were going up a rope tow to get to a lift and he pulled hard on the rope at an angle to the direction it was going, and let it go with a *fwap.* I was behind him and didn't know what the hell he was doing and it knocked me right off. I felt like a fool. :)

We also did a double black diamond slope--well, I did it about three times and he did it once and fell a lot. Last time I tried that slope was about five years ago and I gave myself a black eye. My skills must have improved because I had no trouble with it last night. That's kind of a good feeling.

I haven't been this happy since we got back from South Dakota. I don't really know what the gig is, but I'm riding it as long as it will last. I feel pretty good. Pretty darn good. M is off work this weekend by a miracle of good timing and it's good to just spend time with him and anticipate giving him his presents and hang out with the dogs and do what the heck ever. I hope it just *stays* this way for a while.

I'm hungry. Wonder what I can find yummy to eat in the kitchen...

ahhh, skiing, I talke5d the boy into going skiing with me last year. I think that'll be my only chance; he hated it. Sometimes we just have to enjoy the moment and not worry too much about where it's heading... have fun with it!!!

Hope you had a very Merry Christmas! I have a friend who's from South Dakota, and he's intolerably happy every time he leaves there.

I grew up skiing on what was, quite literally, a garbage dump. Yeeehaw, NW Ohio. I migrated North and found out that mountains are different than mole hills. Now, they don't call me the ever-lovin' tree-hugger for nothin'.
