Well now, that went by fast. Last time I checked in here it was January and the high season was still new. And now, its all over. But while most of BC experiences proper spring it is still snow boots and white stuff around here. Its melting fast but the melting is interspersed with little mini blizzards in between. At this rate it will be June before we are achieving full green.
It was a good winter though, and busy. Despite best intentions I did not have much time or content to add to this blog. Figuring (foolishly?) I had too much time on my hands, I took on a part time job at a great little lodge in the village, which then quickly morphed into an almost full time job. Then when I was not working, taking Gary into the backcountry or making the trek into town, I was on the hill. No, not much painting happened. I am still working on the behemoth canvas for over my mantel that I started in January.
So now this little village of ours is quiet as can be. The lifts and snowcats are still. The crowds and most of the workforce have cleared, the businesses are taking a break and the trails are largely impassible. Time for a breather, to catch up, and reflect. In particular I reflect on how much I loved this past winter and how this place feels like it was specially made just for us. I cannot wait to see what spring and summer brings us!
