We've had a little reprieve from the cold weather and tons of snow, but temperatures are expected to plunge again. We are scheduled for cross country skiing with a group, which we have not been doing much of over the years. So I hope not to be hurting or straining anything. Last time I injured my right hand on the Olympic Nordic ski track in Canmore in the Rocky Mountains on the downhill stretch and was in pain in my right hand from it for 6 months.
And we don't have any ski pants that fit. Well, Martin might have some which need mending. But they look a little small, too. Maybe they are not his.
On the upside, we also have dinner guests this weekend and the food has been bought at the ethnic German butcher shop. Maybe there will be potato dumplings to go with this.
I am somehow tired from a number of things including commenting at Called to Communion which made me sad.
Current reading includes the Luther Biography by Martin Brecht, which came this week. It is very enjoyable material. I will be glad to study it. This will take some time but not feel like a chore. I am only on page 60, beginning in the second book for some reason. We just finished the circumstances surrounding the translating of the New Testament.
Now to the unpacking of groceries and boxes and checking snow pants. I hope everybody stays happy and safe over the weekend.
