Fellow Randomeers, welcome to the first installment of 2014.
Is it cold where you live? I got these pictures from Mark's brother this morning. Leon lives in St. Paul, MN, and he works at the science museum. Even though schools canceled classes throughout the state at the beginning of this week, the weather didn't keep Leon home from work. He has made a contraption that allows his nasal passages and lungs to keep from freezing.
...........because I have waited years to go out and do a bike errand below -10ºF. And most important because I still can! No I didn't get cold. This morning it was a beautiful Winter day, Bright sun, No wind, -10ºF, I wanted to stay out and enjoy the day."
Alrighty then...While we desperately need rain here in California, I'm pretty happy with our daily highs in the 60s.
We spent last weekend as a family in Disneyland. Even though our actual 40th anniversary was last June, we deemed this the official family anniversary celebration. That decision being made, we stayed at the Grand Californian, a five-star hotel that is very similar to the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite. Here are some of my favorite photos.
One final picture before we headed home (sniff, sniff). We thought that staying at the Grand Californian would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We are already saving up for next year.
Next week I'll have some thoughts on the new year, including some favorite quotes I have seen lately. Hope your new year is starting out well.
