I have no explanation why I lost my last post. I am back home from vacation in Palm Springs. It is amazing what the low 80's can do for your mental health. It was so nice to see my mom and dad and my husbands parents. I now understand why they live in the desert. As soon as I got off the plane, I felt the stress of the long winter just melt away. No more will I be a Debbie downer. There is only two more months until spring, and the subzero weather is in the past, until next year. I have been watching the winter Olympics and cheering for home town girl Lindsey Vonn. I am so impressed of all of the athletes and there love of there sport. I can't wait until, I have the opportunity to teach our future child how to ski, and introduce them to other outdoor activity's. Here in Minnesota to keep your sanity in the winter you need to get outside. The photo in the last post, and the one above are art ice houses. The event is called the Art Shanty House Project on Medicine Lake. Local artists build ice houses on the lake, it's a fun event. Today I have alot of projects to do around the house, I will give an update later.
