    "Colorado and Wyoming are America’s highest states, averaging 6,800 feet and 6,700 feet above sea level. Utah comes in third at 6,100 feet, New Mexico, Nevada, and Idaho each break 5,000 feet, and the rest of the field is hardly worth mentioning. At 3,400 feet, Montana is only half as high as Colorado, and Alaska, despite having the highest peaks, is even further down the list at 1,900 feet. Colorado has more fourteeners than all the other U.S. states combined, and more than all of Canada too. Colorado’s lowest point (3,315 feet along the Kansas border) is higher than the highest point in twenty other states. Rivers begin here and flow away to all the points of the compass. Colorado receives no rivers from another state (unless you count the Green River’s brief in and out from Utah). Wyoming’s Wind River Range is the only mountain in North America that supplies water to all three master streams of the American West: Missouri, Colorado, and Columbia rivers." Keith Meldahl Happy one week anniversary, you cuties.

let it snow, let it snow (part 1)

If you happen to live in Canada, there’s a big chance that you will have snow for Christmas. If you live in Saskatchewan, it’s guaranteed to be white and cold. I honestly don’t mind this weather. I have always preferred to wear layered fall/winter attire over next to nothing in the summer. I also do not get cabin fever as I am usually going to one of my jobs, the gym, for walks, dates, or errands. Our animals can get stir crazy at times, but I just make their outdoor exercise more frequent. I figure that this snow won’t last forever, and so I might as well stay positive since Mother Nature is unpredictable.

As I mentioned, our Christmas was not without snow. It was also filled with family. I spent the morning alone preparing for the day ahead. My husband came home for a quick lunch, and then went back to work. We spent the evening of Christmas Eve at my parent’s acreage with my parents, siblings, and their children. My mum’s house is nothing short of a southwestern palace, which is always very fitting given that we live on the prairies. It felt warm, comforting, filling, and just lovely. It really was like a good, old-fashioned Christmas. It was perfect.

    Anymore close ups and that camera will be confiscated. Nice selfie. Took me a bit to figure where you were. Babas! Now would you like my version of that magical night?
