Again with the rainy chilly...Happy New Year's Eve

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Happy New Year's Eve to all.

As you can see by the photo above we are still in our wet cold spell. I have like 5 layers on here...but the doggies still want their walk. I am glad that I had this winter lined coat downhere that is waterproof. Gosh I think I am living in Seattle again. But I am healthy and feeling good and know that the sun will return in a day or two. It's funny though how when you are used to good weather all the time how all we do is talk about it when it's bad. My blood is used to the nice warmth of the sun though and really misses it.

Today would have been my father's birthday. He was born on New Year's Eve and my mother was born on 4th of July. My father died on many significant days have other meanings to me. So Happy Birthday Daddy. I miss you so very much!

DH and I aren't ones to go out for New Year's as we aren't into all the "crazy people" drinking and such. We will have a quiet evening at home and cuddled by our space heater and electric blanket or out in the outdoor living room with the fireplace going. Yesterday we got the temp up in that room to 70 which felt great.

Here's to all of us making good decisions and looking forward to a healthy Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year Sallie. It is nice to get rugged
up sometimes. I stayed home last night and
didn't even make it to watch the fireworks.
Just resting today and will start by mindful
eating. Have a great New Year and I hope the
sunshine comes back soon. Here's some sun
from Australia to warm your days. emoticon

    Happy New Year to you, Sallie. I'm not into crazy drinking, either; I'm into parking my car in the garage before sunset on New Year's Eve and leaving it there till morning. No rain here today, and the snow was light enough that it will blow off the driveway. Seasonal weather, but not bad for where I live. Then again, I have heat in my house. emoticon

    Happy New Year, Sallie, and here's to a wonderful 2014 for you and your husband. I'm sure your dad's heart would have been warmed by your sweet remembrance of him...and his special birthday! I love this picture of you and the doggies - adorable, though you really do look as if Seattle were your backdrop in that picture emoticon It's in the thirties today where we are, so I hope that's a little, we're expecting a few inches of that "white stuff" on Thursday and Friday. Stay warm! We're not big New Year's Eve drinkers, either (we don't even drink! :)

    Happy New Year. I hope you have a wonderful 2014.
Coincidentally, my mother's birthday is today also. She turns 83 and she too is an ex-pat. She retired to Rio de Janeiro around 1985 and she loves it there.

  I will trade you places. Right now it is minus 51c with windchill which is -59f . The actual temp is -38c which is -36f

I know how you feel though, you are in a warm place and are used to the warmth. I hate the cold even though I should be used to it. I am bundled up on the couch and am going to watch a movie.

Happy New Year!! I hope it warms up for both of us. emoticon emoticon

    Happy New Years to you, too, Sallie! You look appropriately bundled up for the weather. The mountain is beautiful in a different way on such a day. Those dogs look like great companions!! Wishing you a very healthy and happy 2014!!! -Marsha
