Just a few days......11:10 AM
and we're starting a new year, a completely blank canvas again. Doesn't it scare you in a way?
I always feel like this when we're close to New Year's eve, it's that whole anticipation of what's to come and what will happen, though completely ridiculous because worrying about things that you have no control of, are just a waste of time.....in MY book!
Anyway, Christmas is over, we had a wonderful time and it was great that we got to spend it with family this year instead of the usual 4 of us.
We laughed, we ate, we talked, we played games and we sadly sad goodbye yesterday as they headed out the door on their way home.
After they left though, I completely pulled down all the Christmas decorations inside the house, including the tree. You might laugh or think I've done lost my mind but you see, once the holiday is over I just want my house back to normal.
I didn't touch the outside ones yet, those will come down this weekend.
While my in laws were here, we took them to the Saguaro Ranch Park, we wanted to walk around a little and Nicholas had the perfect place to ride his new scooter, besides, there's nothing like walking through a Rose Garden. It's like an assault on your senses, the colors and the scents permeating the air.
I'll show some pics, oh and if you've noticed the new header, those were taken there too.
My in laws, Pat and Ken.
I love this one, my girl is getting so big
Lots of chickens and Peacocks around the Ranch
It was interesting visiting with my father in law, having grown up in a farm himself he was able to explain what each machine did and how it works.
It was a fun afternoon.
But moving on, like I said we're almost at a new year and it's time for me to kick my own behind back into gear and start blogging every day, something which I've missed dearly.
Don't be surprised to see posts popping up left, right and center and to see my little old self visiting your blogs on a daily basis too. AS it is, I am almost afraid of opening my Google Reader, if I see over 1000 posts to catch up on again I may just have a conniption LOL
Well, I have lunch to prepare and I also want to settle into bed and read, I'll just say that it's THAT time of the month and you'll understand my need for a comfy bed, a warm blanket, a good book or tv show and chocolate....Oy!
