Digging Out/Hiding Out - The Conflict
Pretty soon, I'll find some spare time for skiing if the snow stays deep. The top image, the rolling hills wending back into the campground, give a good uphill workout going out and some gentle downhill gliding for the return. Out in back, there's more hills so all together, it's a nice workout! When I lived in Alaska, one big draw was being able to go just a little way out of my house and landing at a city-maintained nordic ski trail. Well, we don't maintain any trails here, but it's truly just out the back door!
But realistically, it's still serious crunch time and today, I didn't care whether or not I could get out of the driveway (had it plowed anyway as the overnight drifting was heavy.) I must be nuts, starting Friday, and then from Monday through next weekend, I'm doing "Showcases" on Etsy nearly every day, just to find my way into somebody's, anybody's, everybody's (??ha ha!??) Christmas stockings in a couple of weeks...It's hard work as many of my designs get made when they are ordered, and just preparing to ship is time consuming, too...but I'm just stating some facts, NOT complaining!! I'm pretty organized and just doing the old "pedal to the metal"-kind of like preparing for, well, any number of big projects I've done with my art over the years.
So today I'm sharing early winter/late fall images from WillOaks Farm and concluding this post with Purrmeister who played so hard, he had to lay down next to his game and take a nap. That goofball is hysterical and truly keeps me grounded at the moment.
Thanks for dropping by!
