As you all know, earlier this week we took a few days here at PG to organize, update our POS system and best of all, to have our holiday party! 12 Days of Christmas takes a ton of work and preparation for each and everyone of us, so it was great to be able to kick back and relax a little with my hard-working crew. First, we had an awesome lunch prepared by Chef Erica and her team. They spoiled us with home-made lasagna, garlic bread, and a huge salad bar.
For dessert there was hot chocolate cake with marshmallow cream layer, chocolate frosting and salted caramel drizzle. Along side that there was apple cider cake cookies with a whipped cider frosting and an apple blue cheese cream pie with almond topping – amongst an array of other holiday treats. I can’t even tell you how good everything was. Thank you Erica, Mic and Pam for all your extra hard work!!! After that we had a gift exchange and a fun game of Family Feud! Nick was the game host and announcer – of course!
It’s always a little sad to see all the wonderful holiday decorations come down to go back into storage for another year. I guess the good news is, that means the days are getting longer and we’re officially headed toward spring…sort of. LOL! You certainly wouldn’t know it by our weather lately. We had little bit of a snow dump yesterday – probably about three to four inches of slick and fluffy – just enough to make the drive to and from work a little hairy. The forecast is calling for even more throughout the day today, just to add to the fun. Ahh, winter in Wisconsin.
Despite most people’s grumble-grumble about the snow, I know my outdoor winter sports enthusiast friends are tickled pink about it. I can’t deny that it’s not only beautiful, but I’m feeling super inspired to get out and enjoy it more myself! In fact, I’m proud to say that I dusted off my skis this week and headed up to Nordic Mountain in Wild Rose for some night skiing. Downhill skiing was something we always enjoyed as a family when my boys were younger. We always tried to make time for a family ski trip up to the U.P. of MI each year while they were growing up. I really miss those days! I was happy to be on the slopes and out in the fresh air. I need to take more time to destress like that, it was so much fun!
My goal is to get to continue to get outside at least once a week for some exercise and relaxation. I’m also thinking that cross country skiing and snowshoeing may just be in my future….we’ll see! Who wants to go?! I’m even thinking of starting a ski club if I can find enough people interested in making it a weekly thing! Let me know in the comments what your favorite winter activities are and how you fend off your cabin fever!
If you need a winter project, don’t forget about the free download I posted earlier in the week of my, “Streak of Lightning” quilt pattern. It’s a beautiful blue and white quilt, perfect for the frosty month of January!
Tune in today at 1:00pm on my, “Stitch with Lisa Bongean” YouTube channel to hear me talk more about our great prize give-aways and adventures on the ski hill. See you there!
