As I get my thoughts and photos organized I plan to do a recap of those 2013 tidbits and events I didn't get around to talking about during the year. For example, a little trip we took to Mexico (honestly can't believe I haven't posted anything about that vacation)! For now, though, here are some random musings from my first three days of 2014.
New Year's Day was quiet and relaxing. I had the day off from work and spent most of it reading, perusing Pinterest, finishing up a special list (update to follow!), watching a movie (Steel Magnolias was on television and I couldn't tear myself away; that movie gets me every.single.time!), and of course cuddling with Crickett. While perusing Pinterest, I came upon this beautiful quote about the new year and thought I should share here (the art in the background is a section of of one of my sister's paintings - her work is so beautiful!):

Yesterday was a very odd January day. The high was 40 degrees - which in itself is a strange temperature to be seeing this month - and we got rain. January and rain definitely don't go hand in hand here in North Dakota. Of course, everything froze over night (some impressive sheets of ice out on the driveways and streets), and we are now back to living in our much more common, below-zero January temperatures. (Tomorrow's HIGH is -20 degrees with windchill possibly reaching -50 degrees. Oy!)
Be back soon!
