Hiking, Scrapbooking

Ask and you shall receive

Yes, the sun has been out all week! After a couple of days of sun-on-face action, my body has kicked into happy springtime mode. Huzzah! I can’t complain when I can start every day by eating breakfast on the porch with Scabbers…


…but I would be even happier if I hadn’t sprained my ankle and could actually do stuff outside without looking like a complete arse:

Sprained ankle


Oh well, for now the fact that I even *want* to get out and do stuff is making me happy. I’ve come such a long way since last year. Now I just need my ankle to heal so I can start getting into shape for hiking season – all the hikes on my to-do list (I know, I’m such a nerd) seem to have wicked elevation gain…this does not bode well for my fear of heights!

Since this post is all over the place anyway, I’ll add this photo of JK from last weekend (pre-sprain) just because I think it’s cool.

Snowshoeing @ Gold Creek Basin

…and the first layout I’ve made in ages! This was for Scrappedugnad this week – not the most exciting layout ever, but the journaling is important to me (and private, so I won’t post it here. So there!):

Walking back to happiness

    Håper det går bra med ankelen din!
    Sol hørtes herlig ut, her regner det på andre uka:(

    Hiking over there ser bare såååå mye kjekkere enn hiking her*fnis*
    Skulle ønske jeg også likte bedre å være ute i det fri….something to work on!!

    Ser deilig ut med sol!!! Kunne ønske den snart kom en liten tur innom her også, lader batteriene ganske godt gjør den også.

    Lo’en din var bare lekker og stilig bilde av JK :o)

    Håper ankelen din kommer seg fort, sånn at du kan øve til alle turene du har lyst til å gå!

    Må bare får kommentere kortet fra JK under her også, skkelig herlig!

    I will be in Seattle on Sunday! (Actually, I arrive around 11 AM, so plan to do a little sight seeing, before driving down to Tumwater, WA where I will be Monday and Tuesday. Have you ever been to the Japanese Garden? I have that on my list – along with the Space Needle. :)

    Hi. I’m Mark’s wife. You’ve made some comments on his flickr photo’s. I’m sorry to hear about your ankle. We were backpacking up in the scottish lakes area and I fell and tore ligaments in my ankle and had to hike back out. Not fun. I feel your pain though. I also feel your pain in regards to migraines. It was helpful to read your comment on Mark’s blog. Speedy recovery with your ankle and I hope you are able to get out and enjoy the nice weather soon.

    Kjipt med ødelagt ben når man har slike muligheter som dere har.
    Håper du snart er på bena igjen. :)

    Nå begynner snart fjelltur-sesongen her hjemme og i år er planen å utforske mer i Rondane. Det gleder vi oss vilt til! :)

    Ønsker deg en fin helg.
