Wednesday is typically my day off. I was hoping for a lazy day, but it wasn't to be. I had my final Dr. appointment. It took a chunk out of my day, but worth it to find out I'm just fine - no more pneumonia! I was told to rest, and rest I did. I pretty much felt like I was decomposing. Now it is time to get back to being active!
This time of the year, active means hitting the ski slopes. There is definitely a lack of snow this year. The ski areas in the Catskills say they have plenty, though. Last year, my first day out I was able to get in 11 runs, from top to bottom. This year, still being a bit winded from the pneumonia, I suspect I may only get 2 or 3 in. We'll see...
In March 2009 we had a wonderful family vacation, skiing in Lake Tahoe. Much to our delight, we arrived in the middle of a snow storm in the Sierra Nevadas and experienced almost 4 FEET of snow. Skiing was phenomenal!!! My new Nikon D60 got a great workout. Yes, I ski with my camera. We still had a professional shot taken at Heavenly Valley ski resort. We rarely have one of the four of us together, so I treasure this one.
Because I do love the winter, one of the first digital scrap book kits I purchased from Scrap Girls was "Flake Flurry". It had some lovely digital paper, elements and word art in cool blue tones. So, as soon as we got home, I put together a very simple layout. I didn't use any "techniques". I just put a grungy frame around the main photo and a border separating the three photos I took at the bottom. Then a few snowflake elements to add interest. I was surprised at how quickly it came together.I hope you all are enjoying your winter so far!
