The cookies are all baked!

. . . and the house smells heavenly!

Not to mention that the cookies taste better than the house smells!

Also, we have staged in the den most of the "stuff" we're hauling to Colorado for skiing with the exception of our suitcases with traveling clothes, toiletries, etc. That happens tomorrow night, after which we load up the car with everything except the food in the freezer and the fridge.

Saturday we hit the road before dawn, hoping to make at least Raton, NM or maybe Trinidad, CO. On Super Sunday we'll arrive, unload, get set up, rent our ski equipment, figure out what we forgot to bring and whether or not we need to replace it, welcome family and friends, and get some rest.

Monday we hit the mountain!

More to come.

I will never understand anyone actually seeking out snow and cold weather.

Well, that's like the fact that many people who live in Miami never ever go to the beach. We seldom value the things that are around us all the time. (Oooo . . . like a spouse?? Deep thought there!)

Thanks, Rob. Always safety first!

(Well . . . usually.)

Snow is not my "thing" but I hope you have a wonderful trip. I know a part of the fun is having your family there, so enjoy!
