I'm home, and only slightly sunburned, after 8 days at the beach.

I missed my puppy, and I'm glad to be home. That said, the trip itself was largely great, and very relaxing. There was sleeping (yay!), strawberry picking, a trip to a goat dairy (and there were some very friendly baby goats! SO ADORABLE!), winery touring, several trips to the hot springs, camp cooking, mad dashes to the coffee shop across the two-lane but incredibly busy road, and inevitably, swimmin' in the salty water at the beach (and, also inevitably, sand in uncomfortable places). I shared a tent with [livejournal.com profile] evil_s and [livejournal.com profile] beachy_woods for the first two nights, then switched to share with [livejournal.com profile] therathasspoken and [livejournal.com profile] dzurlady, and eventually also [livejournal.com profile] gabyvarius, when the former two arrived at camp. There are photos, which I shall put up eventually.

On NYE there was a storm, which was exciting in a mildly-too-exciting-for-kitties sort of way, but nothing flooded and nobody was fried by errant lightning, so all was well in the end. The weather gave us a long enough break to usher in the new year on the beach, singing madly with chorister folks and watching [livejournal.com profile] ockyflam do his best attempt at fire twirling in difficult conditions. Illegal fireworks were in abundance, with some a little too close to home for comfort.

Today, Stretch launched the boat he spent all week making, and it floated, despite bets to the contrary between [livejournal.com profile] evil_s and myself. Much amusement!

OH. Also, I saw Sherlock Holmes, and it was epic!

Um. That is all.

Happy new year! Good to see you around here :) Nope, no resolutions in sight for me. I don't think they work for me, and if I want to make a change, why wait til new year? What about you?

I've been here the whole time :P, just haven't been posting 'cause i was too busy or tired or both

I find the new year tradition of making resolutions useful for reminding one to re-evaluate life, just in case they forget to pay attention the rest of the year.
My resolutions:
1. To assert my independence and find myself in this crazy world
2. To spend responsibly and save as much as possible
3. To develop and maintain closer friendships

They sound like sensible resolutions - especially #3. Are you saving for anything in particular?

I'm saving with the eventual goal of buying a house. I know it'll take longer than my PhD, but if i start saving now at least i stand a fighting chance... :)
