Happy New Year.  I'll admit, it kind of snuck up on me this year.  But polar bears don't lie, its time for a new calender.
 New Year also means new goals, resolutions, etc...
 It seems fortuitous that I have a 1 year old so I'm keeping it real this year and I'm going to try and reconnect with my inner 1 year old.
Take a little love from man's best friend
Appreciate the beautiful things right in my own backyard.
Run around outside, come rain, snow, or wind
 And make my little corner of the world a greener place one little leaf at a time.

Have a happy, healthy 2011.

Winter, finally (and seriously)

I planned to start this blog last spring as my garden flew into action, but then got into the actual work of gardening and abandoned the task. However, today its winter, really winter. I'm wearing long underwear and sitting under a blanket and I'm still cold.
Today is the shortest day of the year so from here on in it gets better. I look forward to longer days, that's for sure. But I'll also tuck in and enjoy winter's freeze and snow, it does mean skiing after all. Maybe more importantly is the snow pack - without snow there isn't water for the West.
The end of the year and the solstice are a good time to think back on the last 365. I have no reason to complain and feel really lucky about the last year and really hopeful about the year to come.
