First, I thought I'd show you the paradise where I was for a few days, celebrating the new year. What's nice about Sacramento, besides its own quaint charm, is that it's just a couple of hours away from some great getaways: San Francisco, the Pacific Ocean, and the Lake Tahoe/Truckee/Donner Lake area.
My family stayed at a friend's cabin with my parents in the coldest weather that I have ever experienced in my entire life! Sacramento is cold when it gets below 70 degrees, and people think we're in the next Ice Age when it's below 50. I've been in Truckee and Tahoe when it's snowed, and the temps hovered in the 20's. Well, this time we were in sub-zero temps in Truckee. Ahem, I said sub-zero! But, it was beautiful. Please enjoy just a couple of snapshots of some crazy, cold fun.
A beautiful shot of the scenery on a walk. So gorgeous it was breathtaking. The snow sparkled like silver.
Finally, Melissa Dion from Ecolissa asked if I would post a discount on my site for her clothing website. I was not offered anything in return, more than you are being offered, but I don't do everything just for greed's sake. I checked out her site and thought, "Sure, why not?"
Hope you had fun checking everything out on here. Keep warm, grow plants, and wear clothes!
