Pictures I Like A lot Better

After my ridiculous escapade to weigh in heavy, I sat down with a great girl. She had just been out shoveling snow. I decided to go out while it was still dark and see if I could see the moon. The fresh fallen snow glittered in the lights of the hospitals front entrance. It was surprisingly warm and quiet for a New Years Eve. I couldn't see the sky because of the heavy snow, but the night was beautiful none the less. Rather than feeling sorry for myself, I realized how wonderful it was to be alive. Just walking, seeing and taking in a deep breath is a gift that none of us should take for granted. I got down on my knees and thanked God for the New Year. It was quiet and so I spent about an hour shoveling snow off the sidewalks. It felt great to be outside, moving around.

Later on that afternoon, I had planned to go out skiing with Moonbeam. The snow clumped up on my skis and so I switched to shoes. I was a little bummed about this, but as I kept hiking, I couldn't help but marvel at the beauty in the fresh fallen snow. Then I ran into the boys coming back from one of their adventure hikes. It was a wonderful way to spend the New Year.
Photos include Super Catman making Gingerbread Cookies, Me -n- Moonbeam on a hike, The rest are from my New Years Hike.

It's official. If I EVER get up close to Montana, I am sooo looking you up! I just can't get over how beautiful it is there. I am a sucker for nature and natural beauty. You get all of that right at your front/back door. I can see how wonderful it all is.

I've been enjoying catching up on posts. I've got a bit of a salt tooth, so I laughed at this one. I loved the bragging on the hubby post too. Thanks for writing. I really enjoy reading the things you share.

Love the pictures, what a beautiful winter wonderland! I guess my turn is coming soon. I am going to need prayer moving to CO. Yes, being that I am a crazy Cali girl who knows nothing about snow & ice...yep...need prayer for that.

Yes, it is good to get outside and move around. I am so thankful that I am able. Don't let the weight thing color your world gray. Easier said than done, I know. Just recently I was thanking God for my pelvic floor muscle being in a constant spasm (as opposed to too loose). And I know you are thanking God it is only 10 lbs.
