|« Happy New Year, indeed||Holidays »|
After "Festivus Hot Pot Dinner" with some Jewish friends on Christmas Day, we escaped NYC to spend a week by the Shawangunk Mountains. We're here in New Paltz, staying in a cottage at a horse farm. We've fed their donkeys and horses, chased geese and deers in our backyard, had a little hike in the woods, and walked around historic New Paltz. To unwind, I finished 1000-piece puzzle, and Taiyo worked on more LEGOs. We are quickly adjusting to sleeping late with bright morning sun shining on our faces. Days are still short and our week is going fast. Even with the bright moon in mid-sky, there are so many more stars visible around here. We love the country life!
