Wow, here I am thinking that Blogspot deleted my blog due to inactivity (yep, haven't looked at it since that snowy Saturday morning over 3 years ago...) but it is here & Mountain Time is still ticking by...

I'm, not surprisingly, still here enjoying Mountain Time in the California Sierras. After leaving Orange County, it's hard to want to go back. Work continues, but has slowed down a bit, so now I have more time to play with Hubby & the doggies. Einstein was adopted in October 2004 & Joon on 06-06-06 - yes, she is the devil dog, but we still love her.

A couple of things have changed though... both Hubby & I have new snowmobiles - I outgrew The Happy Meal Toy, and Hubby's Old Yeller was well, old. Look for snow-fun photos soon! Being July, I do miss the snow and can't wait for winter.

This post is mostly to get back into blogging mode after my sister ( & her friend ( have inspired me with thier wonderful blogs. So that's it... my first pitiful attempt after 3 years. Here's hoping this time the habit will stick.

So, here I am on a Saturday morning, we're getting another storm today, so I'm spending some quality time on my new blog.
What's mountain life like? We moved here to get out of the Orange County rat race. For the first year, we've accomplished that. I have since found work. Lots of work. Too much work. Now I feel like I work more here than I did in The OC. Maybe it's because I work at a variety of jobs instead of one job like I did in the city. Hubby works more than he ever did, and has a commute too. Ugh!
To counter balance all the hard work we do, we play hard - snowmobiling & snowshoeing in the winter, mountain biking, hiking & motorcycles in the summer.
In addition to the work hard/play hard lifestyle, we've ventured into some house re-modeling just to make our lives that much more interesting.
I'm hoping to post photos of all the things that make my mountain life interesting to me, so here goes... enjoy.

Me & my new sled
We nicknamed it "The Happy Meal Toy" because if you were to ever find a snowmobile in a Happy Meal, it would be this one - small & cute. :)
