Evening -




I enjoyed a lovely weekend.   Chris came on Saturday and spent the night so we took an early trip up the mountain.  We were the only ones at the top so circled it and went up to the Fire Lookout.  It was cold and invigorating.   I sit here tonight filled with gratitude and peace.

Year of the Ox!




Monday marks the beginning of the Year of the Ox. People born in that year are dependable, patient and methodical. They do not back down in the face of obstacles. President Obama is an ox.

I, also, am an Ox, though I'm not sure how methodical I am, or patient, but I believe I am dependable.  I'm glad Obama and I share the same sign.  :)
