The catch up post

It's been a little while since I last posted and it's been a very busy time. What have I done? Let's see... I've worked on my Christmas Journal, spent 5 days in NM for Christmas, came home to catch up on work and more Christmas Journaling. We partied for New Years eve, made some New Years resolutions and spent 27 hours, (this weekend) without power.

Christmas in NM was a lot of fun.  I spent it my My Girl, her husband and the rest of the family. While there, My Girl and I kept up our yearly tradition of going to lunch and then to the Nutcracker ballet.   Before going to the ballet we stopped at Tucanos Brazilian Grill for brunch. What an experience!!  The brunch included 14+ skewers of various meats brought to our table. You get to choose as many different cuts as you like. Talk about eating too much..whew!  As for the Nutcracker, I wasn't sure of what to expect from the ballet, since we'd never been to the one in NM. It was new perspective on a classic ballet. It was a little comedic and pure fun. The lady with all the children under her dress had us in stitches.

New Year's Eve was just My Guy and I and a whole bunch of strangers partying at the best blues club in Sacramento, The Torch Club.  Before going to the club, we had dinner at the Sheridan Grand and that was an experience in itself.  Great food in 4 courses...ate too much again.  Good thing there was going to be dancing to work off some of the meal. Good dancing music at the club but the singer shouldn't quit her day job. 

Between the ballet and the dancing I did manage to work on some ATC's.  They are for a trade at www.atcards.com called Zentangles. It see what Zentangles are go here.  These aren't mine but it will give you an idea what they are.  I'd post mine but I'm not up to scanning today.  I'm a bit under the weather (and lazy) with a head cold. Maybe tomorrow.

Friday morning just as I was getting to work in my office, the power went down and didn't come back up until today at noon.  That was 27 hours with no power, heat, computers, Internet, TV...I was in hell.... OK, not really, My guy and I went to dinner and a movie (seems that only part of our town was without power). Then we stopped and bought some Duraflame type logs for the fireplace and sat in front of the fire talking and enjoying ourselves.  We enjoyed being together with no distractions. But it sure was dark and quiet in our neck of the woods.  It gave us a new appreciation for everything we have and take for granted, like heat. whew it was cold. Had to have been 45 degrees indoors. And I woke to more of the same this morning...and a head cold. Here I sit blowing my nose for the 50th time and while we do have heat now, I wish I could have gotten rid of the cold as quickly as we got heat back in the house.  Oh well can't have everything.

And speaking of not having everything....I won't be posting my New Years resolutions tonight either...I'll do it tomorrow when I feel better. By the way, not procrastinating was not one of my resolutions but maybe it should have been...oh well...till tomorrow. night, night keep warm.
