Chchch Changes

 

My driver’s license photo is ten years old because I renewed on-line five years ago! Today, I had to go to the DMV. A ten-year old photo just doesn’t cut it.  The eye test, it was pretty easy…and then I had to answer the questions…Changes

Weight? UGH – probably 10 pounds heavier than ten years ago, but 1 pound a year isn’t bad is it?

“I have your hair color down as red” she said and her eyes rested on my short grey hair, “I guess I’d better change that too”

Escape to the Mountains

 

I survived a long tiring week. A week with so much going on it was hard to keep up. It was my birthday on Thursday. I reached the ripe old age of 56. Hard to believe as I feel at least twenty years younger. Maybe I got the dates wrong. I had a lovely day, made special by friends and family. Beautiful roses from my daughter.

The week ended with a relaxing day in Keystone. After riding two gondola’s to get to the highest mountain peak, we arrived at the AlpenGlow Stube, where we shared a very special lunch with friends and family. After sipping champagne, I felt my troubles slip away.Alpenglow Stube at Keystone

We all enjoyed a gourmet meal in wonderful surroundings. You can’t beat a glass of Champagne at 12,000 feet.

The views from the top of the mountain are breath-taking and I didn’t want to leave, but all good things have to come to and end.

Next time I visit Keystone, I will take my snowboard and enjoy the beautiful mountain the way it should be enjoyed. I am NOT the fastest snowboarder on the mountain, but I certainly enjoy the ride.

I wish this was me, but it’s not. I am NOT quite that agile.

Monday tomorrow! Not ready for it, but the money has to be earned so I can enjoy my little weekend trips. I intend to visit the mountains a lot more in 2013. We don’t have the Ocean here in Colorado, but I think the mountains are the next best thing.
