Skiing For Our Lunch

We were spending a quiet lazy Saturday at home when we felt the need to get out and do something, mainly because the kids were bouncing off the walls. There was a tentative plan to maybe hit the big city, go to the library and eat at Boloco, but at some point it seemed like too much of a production, so we sought out something closer to home.

We decided to go to lunch at Stella’s, and to get there by the ski trails. The only question was how the weather was going to be. It had warmed up considerably and there was a threat of rain. It had been sprinkling for most of the morning.

Not to be deterred, we geared up and hit the trails. We figured we could cover 80% of the distance on skis, and then walk the rest on foot. The conditions weren’t bad, though it was misty and moody, and the snow is clearly beginning its decline. The days of skiing are numbered.

We had a nice lunch at Stella’s, it was crowded as usual, but fun. There’s a whole new crew there, so I didn’t recognize anybody. We ate, had our customary chocolate cream pie, and then headed home. It was actually nice to burn off some of the lunch on the way home, where we proceeded to lie around and do nothing for the rest of the day. My kind of weekend.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to RIC for the pic.
