Too Slushy for Snowshoes

All our snow melted over the weekend, in preparation for the snow we are going to get this week! It was 40F and so any plans for snowshoeing went out the window. Brian and I hiked instead and it was so nice to be outside. Our town has a lot of marked hiking trails which is really nice. We just need to get out and use them more often!


In some spots it was pretty slippery but thankfully I didn't fall. The hills were hard on my knee, but it wasn't too bad. Just some twinges here and there. I think we hiked about 3-4 miles but I have no idea.


After our 1 and 1/2 hour hike through the woods, we got cleaned up and went to our Holiday Christmas party! I look forward to this every year because I get to dress up! Plus I have a nice picture for our holiday Christmas cards!


Sunday I got a nice little workout in at the gym. Some people watching while on the elliptical followed by 1.25 miles on the treadmill. Then I laid on the couch for the rest of day.

Now its back to work! Happy Monday!

Hiking sounds wonderful! So nice that you got a bit of a heat wave! It was too cold and snowy to do much of anything outdoors this weekend in Minneapolis... so I did a whole lot of laying low, which was nice!

That's a great pic of you two!

What are you doing for your knee? I've been going on three months with intermittent pain. It's not fun!

Isn't it weird how we always neglect the trails and other places that are really close to home? Sounds like you had some fun in the snow.
