For me I always feel like my personal new year begins with ( or ends ? ) with our Christian convention in late November. Never mind about new year resolutions on the 1st of Jan, it's the lessons learnt, encouragement received, faith increased, & vows to be fulfilled that have the greatest importance. And so 'my' year is well underway already before the calender year gets started. It's kinda good.
No pics so far - oops.
We have been BBQ ing with friends, swimming, water skiing, shopping (new year bargains ! ), afternoon napping, berry picking, renovating, gardening. had a day in Bright with Rach & Anthea and children while the boys took of from there for some dirt biking. The kids have intensive swimming lessons this week - it wears them out just beautifully !
Next week I have them booked into holiday art classes for 2 hours each morning Mon - Thurs. Maybe we might score some quirky originals for the walls !
Keep cool - todays forecast is 43 degrees - again. (and Code Red Catastrophic fire conditions for much of the state .. )
