Beginnings and Happenings

Happy New Year...a week late! We celebrated the night at a friend's house playing cards, drinking champagne and eating too much yummy food. Our feeding frenzy started with apps including Bacon Blue Cheese Dip and Venison Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms, both courtesy of the Sailor. (I hit the jackpot with that guy- He cooks; he cleans; and he fixes things!)

And the party continued into New Year's Day as we enjoyed hot-tubbing and this view.

Not my toes for the record!
After the New Year's festivities, we were hit by Hercules followed by falling temperatures.  As luck would have it, our furnace stopped working when we were experiencing record lows! The repair was fortunately minor, and this beast helped keep the house toasty in the meantime.

After a couple of days being cooped up in the house, we were ready for a little exercise on Saturday morning and headed out for a walk around the nature preserve. Although the thermometer reading was just above zero, the real feel was -12 degrees.

We bundled up though, and it honestly wasn't all that cold once we were moving. Seeing the blue sky and sun shining made it worth enduring the cold!

Other weekend happenings: We met this little bundle of sweetness!

And I did this "No Equipment Necessary" workout from FitYaf.

I have a whole long list of New Year's resolutions, most of which I've already broken! How about you?
