The weather has been generally wonderful for the past week: cloudy, gloomy, overcast with a few periods of light drizzle.
I've had good times, mostly. The ducks, the dogs, Jen and I spent both holidays with my parents and siblings. Food - and lots of it. Long talks with my siblings, mostly deep into the night. Interacting with my Dad, whom I get to see so infrequently.
For the first time in 5 years, Jen spent New Year's Eve with me and my family.
Nadyne shaked like a leaf in the minutes leading up to and a few minutes after the midnight firecracker spree.
Nikka was nonchalant; it's her second time to be exposed to such decibel levels.
Happy 2011, everyone. Here's to wishing it will be kinder than 2011. May we all find what we're looking for.
