Like many, many other bloggers are doing at the moment, I am going to try and sum up my year so far.
First of all, who feels like 2013 never happened? I feel like we jumped right from 2012 to 2014.
This has been an incredibly short year. It’s really just whizzed by for me. When I look back and think about it, I don’t really know if I’m satisfied.
One of my friends was going to go on vacation to Mexico, but then the night before departure, she discovered her passport had expired. But, not to fear, because they managed to get tickets to Hawaii the next day at half price. Wow.
Here in the Forever Sunny California, we are having lovely weather, though very chilly in CA terms. It’s only 54 degrees Fahrenheit! Do you realize how cold that is? The penguins might as well move here! Everyone has to actually wear jackets, it’s that cold! And there is actually wind! Yesterday, we got winds strong enough to blow trash all over the highway. I guess you never know how much trash is in your town until the wind blows it into your windshield. As Bay Area residents a decent distance from the actual bay itself, we do not get winds. Or cold temperatures. This is outrageous! What is happening to the world!
However… due to the fact that we got some actual rain a few weeks ago, every plant around here is absolutely convinced that it’s spring.
So the point is, we’re experiencing spring here. It’s as lovely as lovely gets right now, and I have a lot of big hopes for next year… the backpack I’m making for my baby sister is coming along slowly but surely, my riboflavin deficient chicken, Penny, is back with the rest of the flock, and I’m finally figuring out how not to die while trying to finish all of my homework. And have you seen the Google Doodle today? It’s enough to make anyone optimistic! I think it sums up the hot topics this year pretty well…
Any of you on vacation? I’m jealous. But tell me all about it, anyway!
I do not plan on making any New Year’s resolutions. I break all of them by January the second.
Cheers to the year that has passed and the year full of hopes ahead!
Wow, that was an awkward sentence.
The point is, Happy New Year!
