The children are out of school for Winter Break and so I am seeking refuge in my bedroom. It’s very difficult when they are home! I like not having to get up early and make a dozen packed lunches, (of course I am exaggerating, it’s only three packed lunches, but at the crack of dawn, having to slather even three sandwiches with mayo or peanut butter, just seems too overwhelming) but when they are home, my peace and quiet are gone. I know, I know, I must sound like a terrible mother.
I don’t like Winter Break so much. My husband works longer hours at this time and we can never go anywhere so if you have children, you will understand the constant whining I have to endure and it’s very hard to keep all four of them entertained. Wish me luck; this is only day one.
Yesterday, it was snowing and my husband thought it a great idea to take a drive up to Rocky Mountain National Park. It’s not far from our house and as you know from my past posts, we are always up there. I decided to take this opportunity to show you some pictures from the winter season. It was pretty mild up there considering the altitude. I was expecting it to be much colder and frozen tundra like. I guess we should have driven up a bit further. I wanted to show you pictures of my favourite spot in the winter time. Check out these posts to see the difference in the scenery: Hot Days, Cool Nights and Stunning Sunsets and Fall in the Rockies
It was an exhilarating little hike. The snow was coming down and I couldn’t feel my nose, but it was wonderful. I spent most of the time trying to capture perfect snow flakes. My husband managed to get a picture of one on my red glove.
I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season, surrounded by your loved ones. I am sure there are wonderful things coming out of your kitchens right about now and I wish you all happy eating!
