off to a good start
I find myself embracing my inner Cannuck these first cold days of 2009.
We've gone skating, hiking in the snow, tobogganing and trying to soak up the sunny skies and crisp (okay really freakin' crisp) air for the past few days.
If ya can't beat 'em...
It feels so good to spend time outside.
I love it regardless of how many layers I have to put on before leaving the house.
That's not to say that flip flops and a purse would be far preferable...but what are ya gonna do?
Lulu of course is in heaven.
She's a great little skater- much improvement since last year.
and well who doesn't love sliding down an icy hill on a shiny new sled?
But the real bonus about winter is the hot chocolate.
Only it's not exactly hot "chocolate" per say.
I found some Vitasoy peppermint chocolate the other day and it's de-licious.
It's organic, gluten, lactose and dairy free and a hit.
Though something tells me that the mini marshmallows (that didn't last long enough to make it into this shot) are not Organic.
Or really that good for you.
ah well, what's wrong with a little modified corn starch, sugar, dextrose and terrassodium phrophosphate from time to time?
Okay maybe I'm taking these new years resolutions a liitle too seriously.
I know I wanted to be more positive...but embracing the winter?? W.T.F.??
right...isn't the snow pretty?
and I love shovelling it's such good exercise and a great way to get to know your neighbours...
and it's an adventure driving while sliding all over the road...
and I really really enjoy putting lulu in a snow suit....really fun. honest.
