FIL was seated in his Lazy Boy, all ready for the Packer game. The visiting nurses and physical therapists will still be coming to their house this week. I can tell he's made a lot of progress in regaining his strength. He asked if I would take him to his next doctor's appointment this week, so we made a date.
We left the in-law's house around 4PM and skied off into the sunset. The snowmobile trails haven't been opened in our area yet due to poor snow conditions, but a few sleds were out nonetheless. We used their tracks for our trail which made for easy going.

For Christmas, Carl treated me to a brand new pair of Salomon skis and boots. I had to buy new skis this year because my old ski boots cracked across the sole, and of course as technology advances, bindings are all different again. I hope these last me for at least a few years. They are the most expensive skis I've ever owned, and for once, I guess the old saying 'you get what you pay for' truly applies. They are also the fastest skis I've ever owned. I shudder to think what will happen when we ski on some of the hillier ski trails, I'm going to need a parachute to stop me on the downhill runs.

I'm blessed to have this old farm to roam.
