Frosty old farm house

It's been foggy here in the valley for days each morning and frost has been building up on all of the trees.  They say the weather is going to change so I thought I'd better get a picture before all of this frost goes away.  So I pulled over on my way to work and took some pictures of an old farm house.  I wonder what things were like when this house was new, and who were the people who lived here.  They chose a nice spot to build overlooking the river and things were more quiet back then.  How nice it must have been.  Now there's a busy street that goes right by, and a place that sells cigarettes and a strip club just down the road.

Sun trees and fog

I haven't been taking a lot of pictures lately.  That's usually how it goes during the winter.  Somehow I've lost the interest in taking skiing pictures, maybe because I've been sick for so long, or maybe because it's been so cold I don't want to take my gloves off.  Yesterday on my way skiing the sun was coming through the trees and fog and I had my camera so I stopped along the road and took a few snaps.

New year's resolution

Well I'm glad to see that last year end.. In some ways it was the absolute worst and in other's it was the best.  The trip with Queenie to Glacier was without question the best part.  It was amazing and I'll never forget it.

I'm always glad to put Christmas behind me because of all of the hype.  Sorry to be that way but I guess I'm just burned out on it.  Maybe if they did it like the Olympics, every four years..

New year's was cool in Canada,.. but after I got home I got really sick, lost my voice and am now on antibiotics.  2013 has been a total drag as I've been sick every day of it so far.  I didn't think it could be worse than last year but the way it's starting out, who knows?  I woke up yesterday to several heavy wet inches of snow to shovel to get out of the driveway, then got stuck at lunch trying to get back into the driveway.  Coughed my butt off with the snow shovel both times.  Then today I woke up to the road being plowed which was a good thing except my driveway was plowed in.. My mom called before work at just the wrong time and couldn't hear me because I don't have a voice..

I won't go into the whole work situation. Quality people can be very unforgiving..  All in all I'm not in the best mindset. What's my new year's resolution? I guess loosing weight is a safe bet at this point,. I think I'm down about 10 lbs already.
