The year is off to a good, but chilly, start. Our weather station recorded 11.5 degrees this morning at 5 am. The good part is that we have electricity and heat. We are running around taking care of the outside animals, carrying (hot) water and throwing seed. Still, there was a hummingbird on the feeder just after sunrise, and I have had to replace the food already once because it is only 24 degrees at 9:00. Temperatures are forecast to rise to 40's during the day, in the teens again tonight.
So, we are holing up with a fire in the fireplace, leftovers from last night's party, and the college Bowl games.
We wish you and yours a very happy and healthy New Year!
After living in the Pacific Northwest for 30+ years, Dan and I left our high-tech jobs to build our dream house in the country in a climate that is more conducive to an outdoor lifestyle. So here we are in SE Arizona, living the dream that was in the planning for 25 years.
I am writing this blog to keep track of time and our activities, in short to ensure we live with intention as this is the time of our lives.
"If you talk to the animals
They will talk to you
And you will know each other.
If you do not talk to them,
You will not know them.
And what you do not know
You will fear.
What one fears one destroys."
