Snowed In!

Our lovely raked trails…

Isn’t your favorite thing in the winter getting snowed in? I love an excuse to play around in the snow, go sledding and have a snow day.  My favorite thing? I enjoyed shoveling the trails to our yurt.  Think- shovel about 150 yards of trails between yurts.  Check off another reason I love yurt living!  It feels so good to work up a sweat in the cold…

The windy storm that hit a few days before the snow fell knocked a tree in the trail, and Hal chainsawed it out of the way.  Then more shoveling…. and then we decided to pull a lovely Christmas tree Hal had planted in a pot a couple years ago up to our yurt.  We got the wagon, heaved and hawed our way up the hill (and slid backwards a bit on the snowy trail)… we made it up, just in time for our daughter Emilia to wake up from her nap and help us decorate the tree.  This afternoon, we’ll go hunting for winter weeds to decorate the tree with.  Even though everyone is always asking if we’re staying warm, and they’re so worried about us yurt dwellers, we do stay cozy… and we bundle up and play outside a lot…
