Another day in the life....

Today was a "get your life in order" day....that meant cleaning, paperwork (taxes!), laundry, library, post office, dog walk with a friend, a few stops on main street for odds and ends, grocery store.....  This is not to be confused with "figure out what the hell direction your life is headed" day.  That day has yet to be scheduled.

En route to the grocery store I did manage to try to sneak in a few sunset pictures.  I haven't quite mastered exposure with sunsets around here, but I'm more than willing to practice every chance I get.


Did I mention mountains make me smile?



They do...





You know what else makes me smile?  Chocolate chip cookies......that I made all by myself, from scratch, WITHOUT A HAND MIXER.  Apparently I wasn't thinking about baking when I packed the car for this western excursion.  Skis, yes.  Bike, yes.  Kitchen tools....notsomuch.

I earned those cookies.  

I'm also thinking I earned myself a two-workout day tomorrow thanks to those cookies.  Probably for the best, as tomorrow I'm hosting a hot tub dinner party!  :)  That's right....hot tub dinner party.  Yes, I know its a Thursday.  Welcome to my mountain life.  

Although I believe at any altitude, hot tub + dinner party = trytoburnasmanycaloriesaspossibleinthenext12hours
