Around Here: January

Winter is really here!  Our walks are much cooler these days.  I do not love winter, as there is much less light during the day, however, I enjoy the changing seasons.  I am using this time to work steadily on my project, which I hope and plan to finish this year!  There is finally some light at the end of this tunnel I have been wading through for some time!  Below are some items that have occurred around here in January!

-continuing to work steadily on my long-term photography project, and one portion of the deliverable remains to be completed!

-celebrated Doug’s recent well-deserved promotion!  Yay!  I am so happy for him.

-working with my Mom to finish planning the final details of my sister’s baby shower!  (I found the most adorable baby shower invitations!)

-helping to plan and coordinate a fun summer family trip together near the water.

-burning candles all over the house!

-enjoying date nights with Doug!

-enjoying cooking with Doug and trying new dinner recipes using our slow cooker.

-still enjoying my yoga class!

-I am reading Sally Mann’s memoir, Hold Still Sally Mann.  It is a fascinating read, and I enjoy learning about the lives of artists I admire.  If you are interested, here is an interesting interview with Sally Mann about her new book.

-started the documentary, Making a Murderer.  (Here is the trailer).

-started the final season of Downton Abbey.

-watched the second season of Transparent.

-enjoying playing Mexican Train Dominos.  (Doug is really good at this game!)

-started using my new Fitbit and I’m aiming for 10,000 steps per day, and making this goal most days.

-finished outlining some of my personal goals for 2106.

-decided on my one little word for the year for 2016.

-finished making my Happiness Jar for 2016.

-continuing to make more progress on our ever-growing to do list!

Victory is pictured below during our 2.6 mile walk together at a park near our house this past weekend!  She was a trooper and she walked the entire way!  We are making progress!

Happy Tuesday!

    Great photo. She looks more confident and mature. I don’t know how you get everything on your list finished.
