Day #5 Recovery



Nothing too excited happened today. Yesterday we made a serious mistake. It just so happened to be 85 degrees on the slopes and no one thought to put on sunscreen, except for me. BUT, I always put on a sunscreen moisturizer underneath my make-up with spf 30. I applied my sunscreen while riding in the back seat during the 3 hour drive to Whistler and thought nothing about offering it to the guys. Mind you it was 5:30 or 6 when we left Vancouver and it was cold outside then. I wasn't thinking it would warm up to be as hot as it was up there.
So, we all got blistered. How did I get blistered one might ask, well I simply cried off anything that was on my face while on the slopes. I'm sure the salty tears didn't help to much. This is the worst sunburn any of us have ever had. EVER. Painful, burning, itching, peeling...the whole works. Russell was wearing short sleeves and his arms really got blistered, especially since he lives up here and doesn't get as much sun as the rest of us southern sun bathers.
We basically spent the afternoon riding back to Vancouver and grocery shopping. By the way, food is incredibly expensive up here. Meat and cheese are the most expensive groceries. For supper I prepared a roasted red bell pepper, sun dried tomato, and spinach lasagna. This was basically a day of rest and aloe lathering.

"Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed."
1 Peter 4:12-13
