Weekend Shenanigans and Our First Snowy Hike

Hello, hello, did you all have a good weekend? We sure did here.

Our weekend started with a bunch of crazy errand running like always. We are officially DONE Christmas shopping…..ahhhhh, what a great feeling this is let me tell you. We made a quick stop at the library to restock on books for my husband to listen to on his way to and from work. They had to cutest little Christmas ornaments decorating the library that the children had made.

And we also needed to pick up a few odd and ends including new windshield wiper blades for my SUV. Snow, rain, and darkness do not making driving easy for me, but you add in crappy windshield wiper blades and it could mean disaster. So we took care of this issue first thing in the parking lot of the store.

The rest of Saturday we went our separate ways. My husband headed to the woods for some hunting and I headed to the gym for a workout.

Then Sunday rolled around and we had made plans earlier in the week to redo our original plan for Thanksgiving which was to hike a waterfowl preserve near us that was closed down for the gun deer hunt season. Even though it is still bow hunting and muzzle loading season, the trails were once again reopened for hikers with the caution to wear blaze orange….which we did.

Upon arriving it was starting to snow. We had woke up to a winter weather advisory but this little bit of snow don’t really stop us here in WI.

And as much as I hate to admit it….the snow did add to the serenity and ambiance of the hike.

We hiked the Meadow Ridge trail and it took us just over an hour to complete.

It ended up being an wonderful, snow covered 3.4 miles that ended with hot chocolate.
