Starting a New Year

Well, it is still dark here as I sit down to write with the sun barely beginning to glance over the edge of my world. The barest of crescent moon is fairly low in the sky and I am wondering what the new year will bring.

Oops, gotta stop here for a few minutes. I brought the hummingbird feeders in after dark so they wouldn't
 freeze up, but my little buddies just whizzed by to let me know they are up and they are hovering in the places where they feeders usually hang.

Woodinville is aptly named because it is very woodsy without being in the mountains.Who knew just 20 minutes from Seattle on the freeway would be a tree heaven. I love that part and from the first moment that I saw Woodinville many, many years ago I wanted to live here. Because of the trees (and the clouds) we don't get to view the sunrise and sunset. We get some of the colors in the sky like this morning when it is clear. Just beautiful. That deep orangey-red glow peeking through the trees. Today will be glorious even though we still have a winter wonderland hanging out. If you drive 15 minutes away, there is no snow left to speak of.

I'm not a person to set New Year's goals. I try every day to live my best and it can't get any better than that in my mind. When I worked at Marriott Rewards they wanted everyone to set goals when they did their monthly phone call monitoring. That always stymied me because it was the same story. I told them to just pick one for me because my mind can't even think in the goal setting mind. I get up every day and go to work to do the very best I can on that day....and everyday.
There are always things I would like to be better at doing but right now nothing specific comes to mind.

Still I wonder, where is the world going this next year. Will it get worse, will it get better? What's in store for me and the people I love and care about?????
I know what I would like to have happen in 2011. More of the good things I already have. Then if the perfect job came along that allowed me to work part time so I could still take care of the dogs (Abby and Tika say "yeah mom, don't forget about us"), the house, Bob, and the time I spend with the horses, well, that would be awesome. To be happy and healthy are a part of that everyday thing, but I am sure there is room for improvement. The time and finances to go visit family living elsewhere and to maybe explore some new locale. Oooooh, where would we go???? Just fantasize here a bit, like if you could win the lottery and you would know exactly where you wanted to go. Okay......I'm going to go daydream here a tad as I finish my coffee.
Have a fabulous day today. May the New Year bring you much love, health, happiness, abundance, and hammock time for day dreams.

You may have to set up your hammock indoors for's kinda chilly out there.
