We're only three days in, but January has already been good to us. We hiked an old trail by memory from my high school cross country days and I surprised myself that I still remembered the random turns to take to the trailhead a whole ten years later. Time moves fast, but these past few days have moved slowly in the most lovely ways as we've wrapped up our holiday vacation. This afternoon satisfied our much needed time with the trees amongst winter's crispy air. It felt new and clean. This afternoon also showed us just how much stuff (twigs, leaves, etc, etc) gets stuck in Drake's fur after just a few seconds on a trail. Such a city dog. With one day left, I'll be spending it getting started on two of my eight new year's goals: cooking more from recipes & learning something new (ceramics class starts tomorrow!).
