2012 Christmas Letter

And, just like that, it's Christmastime again! Merry Christmas to all my family and friends! I don't even know what to write about this year, as not all that much happened. It was a very quiet year!

I ventured off to Green Bay, WI in March for my annual trek to hang out with some of the most amazing people in the world, and enjoyed a couple restful "stay"cations in Morro Bay, Avila Beach and Cambria, California.

The Workplace still has Furlough Fridays, so I used that extra time off as an opportunity to hitch a ride to visit my grandfather in the lovely Yellow Rose Inn, an Assisted Living facility where he is enjoying the comforts of home while being cared for by an amazingly wonderful staff of attentive and loving folks.

Mom and I planted a vegetable garden again this year, and were pretty successful with the tomatoes and bell peppers. We also did pretty well with our rose bushes in the front yard, and some flowers we planted in pots in the back. 

Other than that, I just read a lot of books and took a lot of pictures! It was a pretty darn good year! Here's hoping 2013 is just as nice - Cheers!
