New Year's Day...big breakfast with friends and mimosas before sitting around the big fire outside, watching the birds and squirrels and tasting different types of chocolate before heading home.
Today...another good day. Hiking and joking around about the mountain dogs and snakes that will get you. Not quite as funny and enough to inspire a wariness...jokes about the mountain cat, but still...good times.
Tomorrow, I fly off to Florida to visit for a quick week. While last week, my mom had to turn on the AC at night, this week is a different story with temperatures dropping into the 30's tonight, but recovering back into the 60's tomorrow. Maybe the 4th or 5th it'll be warm enough for the beach again. I could use a little dip in the ocean.
