The silence here this week means two things: we were away this easter, and I missed you, my blogging friends. Did you have a wonderful easter?

We did. A weekend away at Elmore/Rochester and a beautiful day worth boating with our girls. And while we were away, I did something that I haven't done for (wait for it), 18 years.

I skiied!

The water was freezing (it took a few seconds to catch my breath), the water was choppy (hello high seas), there was a head wind (that was cold too). I was aching the next day, but mildly impressed that I wasn't that sore.

But I was buzzing on the adrenalin. And can't wait until I do it again.

How about you? Have you done something recently that you haven't done for long, long time?

  1. Oh Kymmie, you even make water skiing stylish :)
    This was a favourite past time where I grew has always had a boat and ski's and everyone that visited partook in having a go...BUT I have always been too afraid of what was underneath to give it a try myself.
    Good for you!!
    So glad you are back.

  2. Go girl!!!! I'm dead impressed. The last time I water skiied was back in '87. I kinda miss it now. x

  3. Yay you! I have never skiied. I'd probably not be able to stand up!
    And I am with Tammi - you even make water skiing look stylish!!!

  4. I never mastered skiiing, but I am very happy to be in the boat just cruising around. Looks like you had fun.

  5. Wow, you got back up on 1 ski!! I am impressed. How did your arms feel the next day? Surely they were pretty sore!!

  6. I love your sense of adventure. I can never do that. No way! I'll die!!!


Thank you for your thoughtful and positive words and taking the time to comment. Love Kymmie. xx
