Home again....

After a nice visit with my family and a bit of a kerfuffle with Air North on the way home, I made it back to the Yukon a few days ago. My nieces were a very good distraction from my grief. Kids, particularly four year olds, do not care that you just lost your best friend. They are very busy and have things they want to do right now!! It is Auntie's job to make sure they get to do those things! It's one of the best parts of being the Auntie. Mom's are too busy sometimes, Aunties never are.

Things like going sliding

And snow surfing, although this almost gave Auntie heart failure! I had visions of spending Christmas Eve in the ER!

And skiing, which also had it's stroke inducing moments. It's a good thing kids are bendy and bounce well!

Oh, and skating....

And bike riding. Just because there is two feet of snow outside doesn't mean you have to put your bike away!

And I could still get some purr therapy. Mystic is showing his age(17), but he's holding his own and still enjoys the holidays!

Now Auntie needs a holiday to recover from her holiday!

Phred: Don't think my sis would let them go, maybe when they are teenagers! Happy New Year to you and furkids...and happy birthday to the puppers!

Stacie: My family lives in Saskatchewan, little town just over the Alberta border. Happy New Year, hope the knee is feeling better.
