Six to Ten Inches!

Picnik collage

There's excitement in the air in Maine: We are expecting six to ten inches of snow tomorrow! Good news for us snowbirds, who enjoy skiing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, sledding, snow-shoeing, and ice-skating. Bring it on!! (We are not dreaming of spring yet, last year end of April was totally winter:)

The collage above is pictures from my first cross-country trip in years (last time was maybe three years ago?). The first half of skiing was BLISS - I loved it! The second half was... blisters. Ouch. Barely made it back. But as soon as my heels heal, I'm going again, but with thinner socks.

*************************************************************************

Jännitystä ilmassa: 15 - 25 cm lunta tulossa huomenna. Hyviä uutisia meille lumilinnuille, jotka nautimme eri lumileikeistä. Antaa tulla vaan! Eihän täällä pohjoisessa vielä keväästä haaveilla, viime vuonnakin huhtikuun lopulla saatiin kunnon lumimyrsky.


Kollaasin kuvat tämänpäiväiseltä hiihtoretkeltäni. Ainakin kolmeen vuoteen en ole taas hiihtänyt. Eka puolisko matkaa oli iiihanaaaa, niin nautin. Toka puolisko oli työtä ja tuskaa, kotona kantapäät olikin ihan rullalla, auts. Kivaa silti oli!

  4. I have read approximately 2.3 posts on your blog, and I have decided that *I* want to be a nomadic homeschooling mom of 5 kids, haha. I would love to be playing in the snow in Maine right about now! It didn't snow at all this year in Mississippi!

  5. Jessy, kids will love it, right?!

    Laura, it sure is awesome :-D And there are days I'd give anything to settle in one place longer than three months:)

  7. Hello Sennie. Your blog is just so inspiring. I agree with Laura. After your reading your blog, it is hard not to also want to be a nomadic home-schooling mom of 5, that travels in an Airstream (love those Airstreams...saw quite a few when we were travelling in the Charlevoix-Saguenay region of Quebec ths past summer!)

    We have two beautiful children with a third on the way (and I have already told my hubby countless times in this last pregnancy that that's it!)so we shall see what happens!

    Also, that's fantastic that you got to go out for a ski. Here in Toronto, Canada where my husband and I would usually be out skiing the trails all winter, we have had a very mild winter (if we can even call it that!) What an inspiring and refreshing way to live life. All the very best to your family. Looking forward to reading more. Happy trails!

  8. Mahtavaa, että pääset kokemaan ihan suomifiilistä siellä ;) Pari päivää täälläkin on ollut plusasteita, joten kummasti kevättä rinnassa. No, vielä tulee pakkasia ja luntakin varmaan :)
