Here's a photo essay on how our January has been thus far. It's been trucking along pretty well.
ElvenTiger officially became a teenager! She and her best friend and I all spent the day together, doing girly stuff. Then we had a family dessert gathering, with gifts, of course.
We had a yummy lunch, and a bit of dessert afterwards.
Though it left us feeling a bit full...
But then we walked around the mall, got our nails done, and the girls updated their wardrobes a bit.
Merlin is doing great. He's been going outside again, and he still loves getting Reiki from us.
Percy is his usual happy self.
Quester has been working a lot, and helping with some projects around the homestead. Dryst is enjoying learning how to create music on the computer. ElvenTiger and I have been doing a lot of reading, together and separately. She got a Kindle Touch from Grampa and Grammy for her birthday! BlackLion has been baking his delicious bread every week.
I even made myself a meal out of it, one night.
We've been doing laundry.
The days are getting longer, so there's more sunlight...
...but we're still feeling kind of loungy sometimes...
Last but certainly not least, I helped a friend as Birth Priestess while she had her lovely daughter. I made a new friend! She's called Ember Caroline - isn't that the prettiest name you've ever heard? She's so lovely.
Life is good, and I am so very thankful for all its blessings.
