I’m so very excited that it is snowing here and since it’s lovely beautiful white outside I thought I’d make a long overdue roundup. Lately I’ve been so incredibly into the crafting that I’ve totally neglected this awesome genre of post. I’m rectifying that situation immediately with a bunch of crazy cute loafers I would love to have gracing my cold little tootsies.
But first, a little story about snow when I was a kid… We always went to New Mexico during the snowy season when I was growing up and often spent Christmas in Ruidoso. What I remember most is the neighbor’s dog at the house we stayed at and my little loom I got for Christmas that had me making potholders like you wouldn’t believe for years. It’s amazing what the mind remembers, isn’t it?
My mother love, love, loved tubing. The premise is simple, you blow up an inner tube, carry it up a hill and slide down on the snow while sitting, laying or being awesome on it. Oh, and it’s is fast, really, really fast. Here is the general premise of snow tubing.
While my mother loved it, my sister and I hated it. And being a good father in the 80s, my dad had his ginormous video camera permanently glued to his shoulder and eyeball. Long story short, somewhere we have a video where Momma shows her hand cut and bleeding (badly) but being totally cool about it. On the other hand, I’m freaking out, very loudly, about how my hands burn and being crazy confused because “I’m sooo cold!” Meanwhile my sister is working on her own brand of crazy listing off the shows she could be watching if she was in front of a TV right then. Not sure why I love the snow, but gosh darn it I do!
