Perfect Snowy Day
When we woke Saturday, the world was covered in a blanket of white and we had no power. Mark thought we needed to shovel. I thought we needed to figure out how to get a cup of coffee. Let me just say right here that Mark loves to do things that begin with bundling up and end with rosy cheeks. I, on the other hand, am happiest staying warm.
This morning after church Mark suggested that I really needed to try going cross country skiing with him. I had planned on another afternoon of serious knitting but he looked so excited by the prospect, I said yes. I haven't been on skis for about 30 years so I didn't hold high hopes for a great outing but we took it slow and Elmwood Park is fairly flat. On the way home, Mark asked if I needed another cup of coffee. I'm not sure I'm ever going to be a great outdoor gal but it's good to share interests.
Tonight we will watch the Superbowl for an hour or so and then switch to Downton Abby. A little of both is OK.
