So guess who turned old as fuck this past weekend… Me! Lol just kidding, I don’t feel old at all and I had an amazing birthday weekend! I spent it with my closest and mostest. Saturday I spent the afternoon, into the evening skiing at Schneider’s Bush just outside of Waterloo.
This place is AMAZING, but also a little too advanced for my over cautious, scared of falling, or moving at fast speeds, cross country ski style. Somebody wiped out BAD there. At the bottom of a hill we saw a large blood splatter and then further up the hill a churned up pile of snow where someone obviously wiped out and even more blood splatter. I hope they were okay! I’m thinking fractured nose or as there was the ice crust on the surface, a lacerated face. I Googled it, but didn’t find anything mentioned about it online.
Myself, as per my usual, fell several times, hence, the lack of confidence going down hills. I usually fall the most going up the hills, oddly enough. I went off the track going down a hill and ended up planted all the way up my legs, face first with arms crossed under me. I wasn’t exactly sure how to get out of that situation and it took a bit of maneuvering. I had a blast and we didn’t get out of there until around 7:00pm and it was dark by the time we made it out of the woods.
Later that night we went to a place on Krug street in Kitchener for a rousing game of $5 Saturday night bingo. It was actually pretty fun and I would do it again. I want to win at bingo!!! None of us won, but heh, it was $5 and fun.
Sunday my sibling and folks came up for a visit and pizza party. I only see my family a few times a year and I think a more serious effort needs to be made to change that. We don’t spend anywhere near enough time together.
My folks left around dinner time and my besty came back with a home made birthday cake and a tye dye kit!
You can see part of the fur child lurking in the corner wondering where her piece was.
Tye dying things is fun!!! We did pillow cases, shirts and tank tops. I would definitely do it again. I wonder how white satin sheets would take to tye dying. I must try this…
My favourite project turned out to be this T-shirt. I hope it looks as good after it’s been through the wash!
It was a great weekend and I am hoping to get out skiing a few more times before we lose too much of the snow.
Talk to you later!
