Calendar Game – December


First, let me set the stage.

It’s 8am. Ad and I are in a hotel in Wichita, snuggled up under the blankets. It snowed last night, hard, and there is a good 5 or 6 inches on the ground. And it’s cold out there. Maybe 15 degrees, with a bitter wind blowing and ice encrusting every surface.

And what do I want to do? I want to leave our warm snuggly bed and go outside in the snow and wind and cold to get a Rope on the Run pic for my last Calendar Game of the year.

I’m so lucky my Guys indulge me.

Out of bed we climb, with nary a grumble from Ad, and out into the wintery, empty world to find a park to do some clandestine rope bondage. Nothing serious, just playful silliness. I know what I have in mind, and after driving around on un-salted, unplowed roads for about a half hour, I point it out excitedly: a park with a large, open expanse and towering pine trees.

Because, you know, December equals Christmas tree hunting!

Or at least it did when I was a kid. We didn’t get our tree from the parking lot of a local grocery store, or off the corner lot being sold by the Boy Scouts, and not even from a Christmas tree farm. Oh no, we hunted our tree, out in the wild woods, axe in hand. And drug it out through the snow and woods by hand.

But first: snow angel!

Unfortunately I lost the images of me kneeling at the foot of the angel, praying with my hands tied. It was such a cute Rope on the Run! Oh well, we managed a couple others that I did survive the migration to a new phone:

Let's take this one!

Ad liked this tree better.

And that, my friends, concludes this year’s Rope on the Run Calendar Game! It was a whole lot of fun, just like the Alphabet Challenge.  Which, now that I mention it, I still have a couple letters left to post on! (I’ll get right on that.)

Oh, and we’re working hard on a new theme for this year – we’ll debut it soon!
