Flying Friday

Since we returned from the desert, winter has hit. In the past week, it seems to snow at least a little almost every night. And the wind is wild. I actually am learning to love the wind - to appreciate its energy and wish that I could harness some of it for my pedaling!

Shyla adores winter and snow. She runs around and takes flying leaps like a puppy.

Some of her leaps astound me. She flyies high through the air, for absolutely no discernible reason. I'm sure that she does it simply because it's fun and she can!
Her amazing snow-fueled energy helps me to keep laughing through the winter. I do have to work hard to keep my spirits up during the time of darkness and cold. It's impossible to ride the trails near my house with anything but a fat bike - and pedaling a fat bike is such hard work (even though I have an absolutely awesome fat bike!). Some days, I find myself counting down the months until we might see the dirt below the snow again.

When Shyla takes a flying leap, I forget all those negative thoughts and try to get into the winter happy state of mind!
Happy Flying Friday.

  7. Wow! Look at her go! I wish my girls liked the snow as much as Shyla seems to!

  8. I wish we had a little snow here.
    Shyla seams to enjoy it so much.
    I can't imagine how cold her paws must be.

  9. Osa 'flew' over some brush today on her second off-leash walk. She's quite the athlete!

  10. Shyla makes flying look so easy!!! You can gladly have all the wind we get here - wind and cold are not this lady's cup of tea.

    We may actually see some snow tomorrow.

  11. Such a joyful pup! We got our first real snow in the winter in the last couple of days and there are many happy local dogs (and humans - ski town and all.) If I were capable I'd be leaping in it myself. Snow is magical stuff!

  12. Wind is the One thing that frightens Bella. SHE hates it!

  13. Flyyyyy with the greatest of ease Shila!
