Back To The Mountains

I am not posting for VTT this week but instead something more topical.


It's cold up here, low teens at night and 20's-30's daytime. Brrrrrrrrr. It's not as sunny today and it looks rather bleak out so I will be staying indoors.
Yesterday I took advantage of the opportunity to connect with my quilty CO. friends the Huggy Bunch that meets every Wednesday in Montrose.
Then I met our visiting family members at the little airport at 4 p.m. -they had been up since about 1.30 a.m. our time in order to leave Boston, then their flight was delayed nearly three hours, so by the time we had dinner last night here in CO. the twins[5 this May] were exhausted as were their Mom and Dad!

Here's a peek at how it looks up here, no new snow for a day or two and daytime temps just enough above freezing with the sunshine to melt the top layer. DH shoveled part of the deck yesterday[that's our little carved wooden peeping tom bear] though we don't use it much in this weather.
As I write it has begun to snow again so we'll have more fresh snow to plow.

When we came in Tuesday we drove through about a foot or two of the white stuff giving DH a chance to play with the snowblower!

Today the rest of the household have been out sledding on the slopes around our mountain home, towing the kids in inner-tubes behind the snowmobiles so they came back hungry and needing hot chocolate and lunch.

The twins with their Mom ..............

and Button who loves to ride on the snowmobile too.

I could be there in a couple of hours if I pack and get to the airport. I would give up this lovely weather we're having to sit on that deck and breathe in that wonderful view.
Enjoy the children and that cute little dog.
Colorado is just beautiful!!
