Weekend Gems

This weekend was full of privileges! Yesterday was a very special day and I was thankful for the reminder to “live for others everyday” and to “let all things be done in charity”.

Saturday, I got above the nasty inversion here in the Valley by going cross country skiing with my in-laws while the hubby worked.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with an inversion, it is a layer of smog that holds the cold air (and pollution) down and can last for weeks; they are pretty common every January.  To me, an inversion actually is The Great Depression. I don’t function well when I can’t see the sun!  But above the smog layer, there is sunshine and warmth, so I decided I needed to get up to Bogus Basin for some skiing and sun therapy.  It was amazing!  Even though I am not the most graceful skier and fell a couple thousand times.

Sunday evening, we went out to dinner at one of my favorite Thai food restaurants in Boise, called Pad Thai House.  The coconut soup was divine!
