New Year, New Life

Today is a perfect day for blogging. A nice ice and snow storm to dampen the city and to close all infrastructure. It is nice to sit around in the pj's and house shoes too. We have received upwards of an inch of ice today on the streets, but we have not had a good winter storm in awhile, and were quite due for one, and one that produced crunchy grass.

It is a new era now... discovering fun new things each day, and letting go of a little bit of the past. One new thing, Apple Martinis at the Cheesecake Factory. Yum. It was late in the evening on Christmas Eve, and Ms. P and I decided to go for a drink. To satisfy the final days of 2008, and all of the things we have been through together, and alone.

There is something delicious about it. I had broken my tradition of a bellini or cosmopolitan, and took a chance on another. Very satisfying to accept a bit of change and growth. Moving on from things that have occurred in the past, and have lots of fun planned for the future.
The new job is quite suiting. I have met many interesting individuals, and have had fun learning new things about myself in the making.

2009, you have unleashed a wild woman.
Goals are as follows:

1. Signing up for a safety course to learn to ride a motorcycle. Getting that "M" endorsement
2. Gonna take up the offer of my next door neighbor to head over to the shooting range.
3. Register for more exams... take them... and pass them on the first go round.

And on another note, the Chinese New Year of 2009, or 4707 it is the year of the Ox. I was not born during the year of the Ox, but interestingly enough, people born during this year "tend to be painters, engineers, and architects. They are stable, fearless, obstinate, hard-working and friendly."
