Happy New Year, my friends!!!

DSCN3303

Today, I started the new year off right and went on a day hike with an lgbt hiking group from Riverbend Park, VA down to Great Falls on the Potomac River, pictured above. So beautiful. It was 5 or 6 miles and my knee is feeling it, but it was a beautiful day for it. I've been wanting to go on a hike with this group for a while, but they're usually longer and more challenging than I can yet handle. This was about my limit for now. There was a slight ocean scent on the breeze off the river--I never made it to the beach last year, so that was a very welcome scent.

Last night, I went over to [personal profile] synecdochic and [personal profile] sarah's party. We watched a vid of Into the Woods with Bernadette Peters, ate the wonderful foods, including buttery choco chip cookies they made, I met the famous Ginnycat,, and had a really wonderful time, but left before midnight, because I was up at 5:30 am.

So I've been more social this new year's than I've been in many months. I'm very glad I got out last night and today. This has been fun. Much cleaning, chores, and finishing of getting cards out the next 3 days. Of course, there will be walks, a swim, much cat hugging, and perhaps another BoFA viewing, if I can fit it in. Then the first day of my new job on Monday.

I am surrounded by snoring cats, and the sleep waves are heavy in the air . . .

I especially envy the hike. It looks lovely terrain and weather. May you have many more!

In other words, right now for you, life is GOOD. And you deserve every second of it!

Happy New Year! It sounds like a great start to 2015.

Did you take the picture of the falls? It's gorgeous.

Thank you--I did. (-: It's like a little slice of the Anduin, isn't it?

Happy New Year, sweetie! (-:

Happy Happy New Year!

That hike sounds amazing! I would have loved to do that, too!

Thank you so much for the beautiful card you sent! I got it a few days ago, but kept forgetting to write a thank you note! I had all my little cards up on my counter, all happy reminders of friends! :)))

Oh wow, that pic is amazing - when did you travel to Middle-Earth????? :P

Yay for you having been more social - I firmly believe that what you do New Year's Eve and New Year's Day sets the tone for the rest of the year. So here's to an active and social 2015 for you! :)

Sounds like hiking was the New Year's day event of choice. :))) And I was up at 5:30 a.m., too! What a gorgeous photo and very Anduin-like. So different from where I was- no rocks in the Pines!
