Looking forward

Happy 2014, friends!

I don't really make a habit of New Year's resolutions but I do enjoy having goals to work toward. Lately these include:

1) furthering my on-going process of learning ukulele,
2) adding on to my musical prowess by learning some accordion basics (my first go was not so successful, but my dad is a very patient man),

My first time attempting to play the accordion

3) getting outside more often, even in the cold weather (and when I say cold, I mean it. The majority of our winter here has been a windchill temperature of -40 degrees celcius which, coincidentally, is the same as -40 degrees fahrenheit)

January 1st, taking a walk in -40 weather

and, 4) getting more active! It's so easy to get lethargic here in the winter, I'm trying to find more ways to be active while waiting for all the snow to melt.
This is what happens when you overdo it at hot yoga...

We're getting real antsy for warm weather 'round these parts and Third Sister is working on a new line of creatures for Spring 2014. I'm taking a cue from the very popular sloth and taking thing s-l-o-w. Time to get crafty, slow and steady style!
