Off Season Part 2

With only a couple of weeks left in the off season, these are a few of the things I’ve been up to during November/December:

Going to the movie theatre...I can't remember the last movie I saw in the theatre!!  In my opinion, "Catching Fire" was a great movie and with great company...The Iron Hippie and a dear friend, Kori.

A cold, windy afternoon in the woods with the Iron Hippie and our two black labs.  Only hours after receiving 6 inches of fresh powder.  AWESOME!!

I definitely lack artistic ability, but thanks to a good (and patient) instructor, I was able to paint a masterpiece...not the same caliber as VanGogh.

  1. What a fun off-season! Love the Christmas tree, and snowshoeing… SO fun! I also do craft night with some non-triathlon girl friends… always a great time to get together and catch up over knitting 🙂

    1. Thanks!! We usually don’t take our ornaments off the tree and just store it ready to go for the next year. I decided to try something different this year. It was fun 🙂

    1. Thanks Abby!! I did not get the creative gene, so learning from others has been a fun way to try new things and yet not feel like I’m completely on my own trying to figure it out. 🙂 We love snowshoeing and do it frequently…when we have snow and temps aren’t below zero like it was today.
