Indoors.

It’s a-snowing in SW Colorado! A lot! So much so that both R and I have managed to get our cars stuck in it. We got his out, but mine needs to be shoveled out… Total accumulation this storm so far has been about 8″, and another 3-5″ is expected today. Up where we are, which is several hundred feet higher than town, we have a bit more.

This morning!

Stuck car… concerned Loki.

I don’t mind the snow, in fact I quite enjoy it. As does the dog. But, as I mentioned in a previous post, I’m limping around quite a lot and can’t really enjoy playing in it as much as I’d like. So indoors is where it’s at for us at the moment. Which is ok because in addition to lots of snow, it is also very cold outside. Lows near zero. We are full of gratitude for our woodstove (Roarin’ Johnny!) for being the only reason we can survive the winter where we are. So while it’s frigid and blowing snow outside, it’s warm and cozy inside the cabin!

Thanks, Johnny!

We’re able to keep ourselves mostly entertained inside. We got R’s inversion table out of storage, which surprisingly doesn’t take up *that* much room (considering…), and I even have room to lay out the ol’ yoga mat. We started working on the railing for the storage loft, and it’s about a third completed I’d say. We cook a lot (over the woodstove, which is the best).We spend a lot of time reading and organizing. We put up some more shelving to save space and things actually don’t feel so cluttered. During one of my expeditions to “organize” the storage loft, I found a set of Buddhist prayer flags that our friend gave us when we left Utah. Now those are up and sending out good vibes.

Loki is unimpressed with my yoga-ing.

Om.

And even when the dog isn’t wearing his goofy vest, he insists on keeping watch from the porch.

The Winter Solstice is right around the corner and soon the days will start to get longer!

Our fire pit! It’s there, I swear.
