I have a love/hate relationship with crazy schedules…I love that they go fast and I have so much to do, but I also hate the lack of down time and the feeling that time is FLYING! Do any of you have the same feeling?
Ok…recap time! Over the wonderful President’s long weekend John and I took a trip to Aspen with some friends. Sadly, Aarf had to stay at home with a babysitter…poor guy. We had such a great time! And it was such a short drive and distance making it a perfect getaway spot! We actually stayed in Snowmass because the boys wanted to downhill ski and we wanted to XC ski…best of both worlds! We did venture into Aspen for some shopping and eating out, and of course hit up Ajax Tavern to people watch…so FUNNY! I am pretty sure I haven’t seen that much fur in one spot in a very, very long time!
No rest for the wicked, right? Well…my lack of rest is now my own fault! I race home from work every nice day to hit the mountain bike trails with Aarf….he loves it, and we get in one quick lap before the darkness settles in. I can only imagine what is going to happen when Daylight Savings strikes and it leaves me with ANOTHER hour of sun! Muh ha ha ha (my evil laugh).
Another of my obsessions right now is getting ready for garden season! Yes, I know. I have been preparing for the past month, but it is finally getting nice enough out now that I can see it on the horizon! So, my girlfriends and I went to stock up on some lumber to build planter boxes. Guys always need more DIY projects, right? HA!
Once that was done, we, of course, stopped for some lunch. What happened to be close by?? Edgewater! YUMMY! I, obviously, went for a delicious burger, while the other two went with a hot dog and brat…perfect choices for a sunny spring-like day! And some beer to wash it all down, naturally.
With all these projects done or in the works, I need another vacation But seriously, we are so happy that we moved here and are settling in to the rhythm and options of what we are able to do in an evening/weekend/whatever!
I hope ya’ll are enjoying the nice weather while the rest of the country stays in a frozen tundra. Get active, Grand Valley!
