Squares – uphill slog

I feel the year has definitely started on an uphill slog. Trying to be joyful and upbeat is not so easy. The only saving grace for me is that I can get outdoors and physically do the uphill slog before turning round and skiing all the way down.. and it fits Becky’s square UP..

    wow now that’s snow hiking. Stunning, and so wonderful to see with you. I am certainly not fit enough to try this at the moment!

      I enjoy the effort of going up but skiing down is wonderful and quick..

  3. That looks fabulous, and the climb would probably warm you up. Trouble is, I can’t ski! I’d have to walk back down. Or there’s always my bum! šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚

      I love the climb up but do appreciate the ski down too..

      1. I put a pair of roller skates on when I was 6 years old and ended up on my back in about 3 seconds. Since then, I stick to shoes lol

    Great photo and looks like a grand time on skis. Not my strong suit, but I do like cross country skiing.

    Stunning picture, Lisa, and it looks like VERY hard work. Slog sounds like a good word to describe it!

      It is one of the hardest disciplines in my point of view..

        I can see that it would be. I’m not much of a climber, but I remember about 15 years ago we all ran down a sand dune from the top of a cliff to the ocean. It was so much fun. Then we had to climb back up. I felt like I was going to have a heart attack. I desperately wanted to lied down and have my husband or son come and carry me back up, but I knew even they weren’t that strong. I started up the wrong way, and had to go back down a ways. It took me forever, but I obviously made it back up – and without assistance or having a heart attack. I wouldn’t do it again, though. That’s what you picture reminded me of. šŸ™‚

  6. So many people are jealous of you! I’m glad you’re getting lots of snow. I live in Utah, and while we should be getting tons of snow, it’s been almost almost 50 degrees multiple days. Climate change. šŸ™

      hahaha we are not seeing climate change this year..

    Thank YOU.. It does keep you fit.. šŸ˜‰

  8. Looks like a great time! Not something we see around here in Florida. LOL! Great pic! šŸ™‚

  9. Look at all that snow around you. So pristine and beautiful! Being in the tropical part of the world, I always wonder how it would feel to be in such a beautiful wintry place.

  10. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve visited your blog before but after looking at a few
    of the posts I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely pleased
    I came across it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!
