Hippy New Yurt

When you're feeling low.........DANCE!!
Hi y'all! I have a million things to do to get ready for winter camping BUT FIRST I have to watch my Canadian Junior Hockey team whup Russia's derriere! Right now we're winning 3-1 but it's only the second period and you can't sit on a small lead when you're playing the RUSSIANS!! They are way too good!

Once we win this game however, (gotta be confident!), then I must make a quick round of grocery store, Canadian Tire and liquor store for a few necessities (nudge nudge, wink wink) to help us through the next few days of winter camping. Yes, magically over the past year we have forgotten about our frozen toes and drippy noses, wet firewood and the aromatic results of Three Bean Chilli and we want to do it again!

Remember these.......?
Michael popping the cork on our bottle of champagne on New Year's Day, 2012!

Toasting each other and all of our family and friends.

You can't see it but I'm sitting in front of a roaring fire. With a bit of light snow pellets
falling it was a memorable night!

The next day we awoke to this! We spent the afternoon hiking and taking some

I hope I can still fit into my snow pants! I'll be doing the Hippy Hippy Shake. 
(I tried to paste the youtube video for this song but I seem to be having great difficulty
with links and embedding today?!)

Anyhoo the point is I'm not any thinner than I was last year at this time :( so guess who needs
to get back on her stationary bike? More to come on THAT topic!

For today I simply want to wish you all a Happy New Year! 
There has been a lot of sadness in 2012 and we all need to
keep the faith that events are unfolding as they should.
Let's be kind to one another throughout 2013
and remember that a simple act of kindness
can be life changing.
