Thawing out in Sunny Arizona

I know I'm being a whiner, but it has been cold for Arizona the last 4 days.  I have been wrapping up in a blanket, wearing my wool socks every day and doing dishes to warm up my hands.  I've already put a pair of fingerless mitts on my knitting list for future cold snaps.  Today, we are back to beautiful weather in the high 60's and life is good. 

This coming weekend is the Havasu Balloon Festival  In its third year, the festival continues to grow and attracts 30,000-50,000 people.  We all get to enjoy the site of balloons drifting across the sky.  Last year I worked a booth and was able to watch them inflate the balloons and take off.  Put it on your calendar for next January and stop by for a visit!

I'm not sure where the first half of January went.  Spending the first week of the month with a heavy cold didn't help my productivity.  I still don't know what 2013 is going to bring for my work life, but am allowing this to be a fallow period (as Roxie so wisely shared) and let life unfold. 

Today I will finish putting the Christmas stuff in the garage and wrap up some year end paperwork.  There may be some knitting and NCIS in there as well.  Tomorrow is termite treatment day.  Whoopee!
