My husband and I do a lot of ice fishing in the wintertime. It’s so enjoyable to get out and enjoy a beautiful winter day, fill our lungs with fresh air, and catch a few dinners for our freezer. We’ve had a lot of pretty exciting experiences over the past 20 plus years fishing together. Not sure if we are just getting older and “wimping out” or just getting smarter in our later years, but we choose our days at the lake more carefully now in an attempt keep the fishing trips enjoyable instead of freezing our butts off. Ha! Ha! Therefore, we have only gone twice in this 2019 season, but hoping to get out there at least one more time before we can no longer walk on the lake for a few months.
There’s nothing quite as enjoyable as spending Christmas at my mother-in-law’s cabin in the mountains each year. This past Christmastime was especially relaxing since I had taken time off work to enjoy the whole week unplugged and off-grid. Perfect for recharging my internal batteries and getting away from it all.
I wish for snow every year for Christmas. I was a bit concerned last year when the forecast didn’t predict any measurable snow for quite some time. It didn’t look good for a “white Christmas” in 2018. That all changed, though, when we arrived at the cabin for our week-long stay. Not 20 minutes after we arrived, the snow started to gently fall. It was so serene and beautiful.
We received a couple more gentle snowfalls while we were at the cabin. It was so beautiful to see the landscape transformed into a winter wonderland for Christmas. It made our stay absolutely perfect.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying a Happy New Year. Here’s hoping 2019 is full of great adventures and prosperity.
