Rather than being cliché, I'm going to be derivative and say, "When it snows, it blizzards," in regards not to weather, but to busy-ness.
The weather, in fact, has been quite glorious, leading to a blizzard of work at the gelato store. With this lovely up-turn in temperature, our humble little ice cream store seems to have made it through its second winter intact. As most businesses fail within their first two years and as we are now entering our busier season of sales, it seems that we at Glacier Ice Cream and Gelato Colorado Springs (the gelato store my hubby and I own together), have officially beat the two-year glitch! All kudos to my hard-working, long-suffering husband who excels even when in new and unknown (and scary!) territory. We loves you, yes we does. (Said in a language my husband speaks, Gollum. I know how to love others the way they wish to be loved.)
The blizzard of ice cream work has been countered by a hurricane of freelance work and work-work for wifey. And the hurricane has been punctuated by the ever-present Gulf-Stream current of a 6-month-old baby.
And now that I've broken every writing rule, from clichés to derivatives to mixed metaphors: I will get to my point: I'm busy and therefore haven't blogged so much. My apologies and my sincerest intention to return...sometime.
For now, let hum-drum walking reports and videos of babies suffice. Thank you, my loving and persevering public.
Week 7 Workouts (Not Spectacular, But Not Nothing, Either)
Sunday - a nice walk in Aurora with the 'rents
Monday - a trek about the zoo with a Hawaiian
Wednesday - a bike ride up and down the Santa Fe trail
Thursday - a stressful walk (full of baby fussing) on the Santa Fe trail
Saturday - a hike up Mt. Cutler with a Canadian
And now for gratuitous cuteness:
Allie sits on her own for the very first time...and a very brief time at that.
Allie goes swimming for the first time...(Well, technically the second time, but she wasn't wearing a swimsuit the first time, which means it was just bathing, not swimming.)
Allie does nothing but sit on the bed looking cute.
