Seeing Friends and Neighbors on the Trails

We've probably done more XC skiing in the past month than we've done since we've lived here, and it's been a lot of fun. We get a good workout, spend quality time together in the great outdoors, and best of all, have lots of fun. I'm amazed how much the kids enjoy it because it can be hard work at times. Then again, we take lots of breaks. We've even gone out in virtual white-out storms, and were unfazed by the daunting nature of the elements, but such is the way in New England.

They got a new groomer for the trails, and it is amazing. It makes a big difference having beautifully coiffed snow, and inspires us that much more to get out there. Plus, since the trails are so close by, we usually see our friends and neighbors out there. It's just the thing to do out here. When it snows, you either go for a walk or ski the trails. Plus we have the big Winter fest coming up, and factor in some ice skating and Alpine skiing now and then (more now than then, of course), and you have the makings of a great Winter.

Speaking of Winter Fest, we're toying with the idea of entering our chili in the big chili cook-off, but stay tuned for more on that.

Until then, thanks for reading.
