Winter Days Are On Their Way

If you’ve been reading my blog over the years, you know how much of a sucker I am for the winter months, Christmastime and fresh powder at Mount Washington. We’re only two days into November and I’m already contemplating which weekend to set up my mini Christmas tree while planning out Holiday Bake-a-thon 2010 with Rebecca. This weekend I’ll be digging my snowboard out of storage, dusting it off and having it tuned and waxed in anticipation of the massive snowpack that La Niña is promising.

Though only two days ago we were focused on ghosts, goblins and stale candy bars, all of that is history as I am looking forward to the excitement of the rest of 2010. With Starbucks ringing in their peppermint mochas as of this morning and yours truly’s favourite mountain set to open just days after her birthday in December, I can’t help but ask:

What are you most looking forward to during the remainder of 2010?

The Furever After Fall Fiesta Fundraiser is taking place in Qualicum Beach this Saturday, November 6th. A small number of tickets are still available for the event, so stop in at Qualicum Wine Making on West First Avenue or zip off an e-mail to the Furever After gang to snap up tickets before they’re gone. Tickets are $35 each and 100% of proceeds support a very worthy cause.
