chair lift

Sitting on the chair lift - listening to the quiet of the snow and observing skiiers swoosh down the mountain....
looking at the branches covered in a blanket of white.
Taking this week to enjoy time with family and friends -
Reflecting on this year and looking forward to the lift of a brand New Year 2011.

Love the lift art work! My hubby and daughter are heading skiing today. Santa brought new skis for Kate so they are trying them out. I'm looking forward to sitting down and making my plan for 2011. I have a feeling it's going to be a great year. Hope you have a wonderful week!

That is a beautiful drawing, it perfectly shows what was my favorite part of skiing, the peace and silence and beauty of being on the lift.
