It’s ski season!

I’m fully refreshed after the holiday season and heading back east to visit family. I’ve been quiet the last month after hurting my back on January 1st–not the best way to start off the New Year. I’m learning to rest and be patient as my back heals.

Oh, and thank goodness Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow. Skiers rejoice for six more weeks of winter.

I took a ski break and challenged myself with knitting. I completed the hardest knitting project to date: an Icelandic sweater. I learned new techniques and altered the pattern for a female fit.

After the holidays, I enjoyed catching up with my local friends with some skiing, working out, and a dinner party.

Andy helped me mount touring bindings on my new skis and we trimmed skins. I tested the new skis out night skiing at a local resort and was ready to take my new touring setup to Canada for a week of backcountry skiing.

I spent most of the last year traveling and living in London without working a full-time job. Searching for a job is stressful, but I have found a work-from-home hourly gig that will keep me quite busy building content. The flexibility will allow me to go on my three ski trips in the next few months.
