55° and 14 days to go.

29 Mar

I happened to be off both Saturday and Sunday this week (unheard of!!) and had hoped to spend my weekend (a true weekend!) hiking, skiing and enjoying the sunshine and warm temperatures that have punctuated Summit County’s March. Alas, strep throat and a nasty head cold threw a bit of a wrench into my weekend plans.

So though I was mandated to stay at home and rest my weary throat (Who I am kidding! No one wanted my germy self anywhere near them) on Friday and Saturday, the girls and snuck out for a quick stroll along the lake on Sunday morning an boy was it glorious.

Anyway, it’s now Sunday afternoon and I have officially not been contagious for a full 21 hours, who wants to grab a beer at Pug’s?!

PS: 14 days til we the end of the season!

You know what’s crazy?

Before last weekend, it had been over a year since all five of us were together; and that over a year ago get-together between the five of us? Well I had “the plague” (aka the Flu) for six of the seven days, so it didn’t even really count as family time.

Anyway, last weekend we more than made up for lost time.

We laughed and joked and skied our way through a rendezvous in Telluride. We ate lunch on “the beach“, enjoyed local brews, visited our elk neighbors and wandered up and down Colorado St. reminiscing about childhood memories of twisty straws at Floradora, feeding the llamas and climbing the Needles.

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! What a way to ring in 30 years!

At 15 weeks (if any of you saw my Instagram post, I counted wrong…blonde moment!), Mayhem is full of opinions.

She likes: SUN (will find any and all sunny spots on the deck and in the living room and claim them as hers), treats, snuggles on HER terms, annoying Abbey Road, making new friends…human and dog alike.

She dislikes: snow, puddles, the car (unless it is helping her escape hikes where snow is present) temperatures below 45°, pooping on grass (?) and being told “NO”

How did I end up with a princess pup?! Either she is stinkin’ cute and the best snuggler (on HER terms…) around!
