Bring on a new year!
Hmmm....no resolutions for me! But my goal this year is to let my hair go to its normal color. I have just been getting very curious what is under all the color. I want to see if I even like it or not. Worse case is that I don't like it and end up coloring over it all again.
January is a full month of birthdays, Johnjohn turned 42! Yep, and Emily turned 19! Why not admit I am getting older when my kids and grandkids are at the age I feel I am?
John, my Dad and Ariel all had birthdays too.
Bazzel is aging too. He spends most of his time sleeping, but still brings in a mouse or bird now and then. Last summer, he brought in a humming bird, and ate it completely right there on the spot! wings, beak, feathers, feet. I felt awful! A week later, there was another dead hummer! I have no idea how he is able to catch them!
Once Arianna got home with her first project, a pillow, Josiah thought he should learn to sew too. So of course we had a class for him then too. He went right for it, just like Arianna and amazed me how fast he knew what to do. I think that driving the little cars I bought them helped them know how to work that foot pedal.
Second week was a tic tac toe board, with buttons as playing pieces.
I have been busy knitting in the evenings. I made a hat with garbage trucks on it for Josiah and a sweater for Arianna. I just now started one for Lina. I will post the sweaters next month.
The month started out with some pretty crazy skies. Beautiful sunrises, sunsets and weird clouds. But it has ended with clouds and we have barely even seen the mountain the past couple of weeks.
I can't believe I have the month posted before the month is over!We are looking forward to heading south to Winnetka for Gabe's birthday next week. We are going to take the train along the coast route this time. My parents are going with us. We have a sleeper car as it takes 33 hours to get there!
