but first we must say goodbye to 2013! here's our sunset on December 31, 2013...very fitting i think!
we watched the whole sunset from the kitchen window and it was very beautiful...we felt like we were saying goodbye to a truly wonderful year here...it was like the sunset knew that it had to be spectacular!
and it really was!
2013 has been very good to us...not to say that we didn't struggle or run into obstacles or need to find nifty solutions to problems - all of that happened to us, too! but for the most part 2013 was another year living our dream, here on our land that we love so much. we strengthened our friendships here in our actual community, as well as with our internet community! and met some new friends along the way! thank you 2013!
and then we welcomed 2014!
you may think the above pic is another sunset. nope - that's the middle of the afternoon on January 1, 2014! a nice, foggy, gray, flurry kind of day! we took that as a sign that 2014 wanted us to start out with a flumping day, reading our books, napping, resting, discussing the upcoming year and watching a movie - i think it's a great way to start a new year!
today it is sunny and bright and clear - but really freakin' cold - no hottub dips until the air warms up a little more! and then tomorrow we are expecting 20cms of snow - bahahahahahah! we'll be snowed-in again! no worries there, though, we got a lot of inside jobs to keep us busy!
we hope that 2014 will be good to all of you and wish you continued good health and happiness!
