It was snowy and wintry in Alberta, with temperatures dipping to -22 degrees Celcius while we were there. It is raining and plus 6 degrees Celcius here on Vancouver Island, so quite a bit warmer. Although our grass is dormant for winter the weeds are not and I see a need to weed our yard in my future. Our trip was both exhausting and stressful and we have decided next year we are staying home at Christmas and will visit with the kids and my Mother-in-law in Alberta mid to early in December instead.
I am looking forward to a New Year, a clean slate if you will. One filled with adventurous travels and fun. 2013 was supposed to be the year of fun but selling both our own home in Alberta, cleaning it out and downsizing and helping Mom sell her house this year equated to lots of not-so-much-fun. We do, however, feel very fortunate that both properties sold and we can all put that behind us.
I wish everyone a safe and happy New Year and will see you in 2014! Cheers!
