Happy New Year!

I have to admit, I'm a little sorry to see 2009 in the rear-view mirror already. It went by so fast... Some of it I barely remember. Good thing I kept up the blogging, right?

We woke up this New Year's Day morning to a dense fog. While I do love the fog across the lake, this one was thick and hazy and not pleasant to look at, but when it burned away in the bright winter sunshine, it left the trees coated with a fresh sparkle of frost. I do so love the trees that way. The low trajectory of the sun kept the sparkles on the frosty branches like a spotlight.

For those who may have had a year you're glad to say goodbye to, I hope that it rolled away like a morning fog and has left your world sparkling anew, like freshly glazed trees in the bright morning sun. May this be the year you hope for, full of health and friends and love.

    Six months here.

    It looks like we left Dallas just in time. Reports indicate that they are freezing their pipes!
