A clean and shiny new year



Yep, we're back to unseasonal sunshine – what a great way to start a new year!

I'm off to get astride a horse or two – another great way to start the new year. Some people insist on black-eyed peas; me, I want to start every year from the back of a horse. :-)  Better yet, I'm starting the new year with a new horse, a dancing partner of my own! (More of that on my horse blog.) I've already loved on the sheep, and plan to cast on a new small shawl and spin a little before the day is through, too. Are you setting the mood for 2013 by doing the things you love?

That's it for today from . . .

  1. I spent the day taking down all the Christmas decorations and stowing them away. (Now the house has a bare warehouse-y look!) Also cleaned ashes out of both wood stoves. So I'm thinking I'd better spend what's left of the day sitting on the couch in front of an open fire knitting. ("Michelle said I had to spend time doing what I love on the first day of the year, honey. Could you do the dishes??")

  2. I did a little bit of many things but did climb on Hickory for just a minute just to set the tone for the new year :-).

    1. Yay! I hope to see lots of riding reports from you this year, then!

  3. I spent the day resting up from a grandchild visit and hiking up to the top of our property with my new camera. It was so beautiful.
    I do wish I had learned to ride when I was younger. I love horses. We live in a perfect place to ride horses but are too old to learn how to ride or take care of them. Maybe in another lifetime. So, I live vicariously through folks like you. Enjoy your magnificent animals.
    Happy New Year to you and your family.

  4. I slept in, moved the rhubarb to a new spot in the garden, planted some garlic (hopefully not too late), made a "homemade" hay rack for the lambing stall, checked out the fat (ie pregnant ewes, and cooked dinner. Just an overall relaxing day. After I'm done on-line I think I'll crochet some on the blanket I've been working on for like, um 5 years... Happy New Year, Michelle!
