Its a new year and with the holidays over its right back to the grind. I was up early to get the dogs fed and the recycling out to the curb before 7:00 am. It was freezing out, and now at 8:30 its only warmed up to 20° F. The thing is, it was gorgeous out, with frost covering the ground and cranes flying west from the river to some of the open fields to graze a little. I said good morning to the neighbor's horses who came to the fence hoping for a treat, and gave them what I could find, a couple of handfuls of frozen wild mustard and some pasture grass that migrated from someone else's field to our acequía. That's the beauty of a new year, it makes the things you see every day look beautiful again because it imbues hope and promise. Here's to the New Year!
