This week has just flown by, probably because we had two work from home days due to ‘the’ storm. Unfortunately for the dog, the snow was not to be and we barely got two dustings. I hope we get another few inches this season as it totally makes my week to see the little terrier snorting and sniffing and playing with snowballs.
Speaking of snow, I’ve been wanting to go to Jackson Hole to get back on the wagon. And by wagon, I mean slopes, as I haven’t been since my little “incident” which resulted in a trip down the mountain in a sled. Fun. But what the what airlines–tickets are $750-$800? Are you joking? Sigh.
Also, speaking of skiing, Patagonia is having it’s annual 30% off sale right now, in case you are looking for something! I had a shared Christmas gift card I needed to attend to (doesn’t count as my one shopping item…woohooo). They had a lot of color selection on some key items like Better Sweaters. They usually do a deeper discount later, but it’s hard to know if what you want will still be around. Can one really ever have too many fleece jackets? (What a stupid hypothetical question).
Patagonia also has what has become my absolutely favorite travel bag on sale right now–the cute little tote that stuffs into a pocket, is water resistant, and has a great little safe pocket on the inside. If pink isn’t your thing, you might check it out at full price. This seriously is my go-to for ‘adventure’ type trips, and has been gorilla trekking, Cambodia temple hopping, to Bhutan, and more. Love it. Fits WAY more than it looks like, but is so lightweight that you never mind carrying it around.
On a totally unrelated but amusing and ridiculous note: I loved ball pits as a kid, and seriously wondered why adults were never allowed in them. I even hatched a plan to put one in my room, though my parents nixed that idea in its infancy. Now that I know too much about infectious diseases, I sort of want a biocontainment suit before I hop in, but thanks to someone in England for making a ball pit just for adults! Hmmm…perhaps hand sanitizer and a mask would do? Totally tempted.
That’s all for this week! Go Seahawks? Go Patriots? Go fully inflated balls!
