Life in the Mountains is Different Part 2

Each winter while living in the deep South I have seen the stores offer slippers on sale, and although I’ve purchased them I have only been able to wear them a few days each year…and I’ve certainly never worn a pair out.  Now every morning begins with me reading to the kids with my slippers on and I am covered with the cape my sister sewed in 1976.  I think I shall wear a pair out!

The site of snow covered kayaks was, by far, the most unusual thing I’ve seen up here this week.

Yes, life in the mountains is different…and, life is good.
