but then opted to the end of our road. My thinking was that no one has been grooming trails there and that most likely, snowmachine activity would be minimal. I was right. We did a gradual uphill climb, then turned around and came down in the pow. We floated on the snow going down, I says to Becky that this was most likely how Jesus felt when he walked on water.
I had a realization after we finished our ski. When we first got here, all the ski trails were single track. Then they were groomed, making them mostly accessible to skate skiers. I started to go out right after snowfalls – but then the snowmachines appeared, right on my trail.
The area we were in today – it is fine for quasi back country skiing. We could see where, on the hills, the snowmobilers play, so I suspect that they are out in large numbers on weekends.
Now I want to get backcountry skis like Becky’s. This way I will struggle less going up hills.
After skiing I took Tinni for a walk. Our new neighbors on Sybarite were practicing target shooting. Bummer.
And tonight, I’ve been working on Bright Lights Book Project stuff. Got a meeting tomorrow with some of the members of the Valley Arts Alliance. I am going to attempt to convince them to do an art in public places project, one in which artists design bookends. The bookends would then be auctioned off at a silent auction. We’ll see.
Today I had a vision. I pictured a general site for the Bright Lights Book Project. It will have one room with sale books and another with free books. Of course, there will be a children’s book room, one in which children can come and pick out books. There will also be a distribution area. And additionally, there will be a meeting room for those with literacy and literary interests.
It will have wood floors, the walls will be freshly painted, and there will be plants, lots of plants. Hmm, I thought further, I’ll have to start working on grant funding.
Grants beget grants. I get the two I applied for, and then I’ll be off and running.
Yep, it was indeed, a darn good day.
