Tex here and I don't know about you, but after all the holiday fun and almost a week at the ranch, I've got a lot of catching up to do.
Yes, I've been doing plenty of cooking, but mostly the same old same. I even made cupcakes this weekend in honor of my son-in-law's birthday.
These were not them, but they looked pretty much the same.
So with copy edits due for one book and a looming deadline on another, some time at the ranch was just what I needed to clear my brain and look toward 2017, a year sure to be filled with many changes for the Obi clan as we bid farewell to the suburbs and go country. But with beautiful winter views like this, I'm sure we'll find a way to survive.
One of my favorite things about winter at the ranch is that it's calving season.
We saw this little fella right after he dropped, about five hours before I took these pictures.
And guess what arrived soon after we got back to the burbs?
Yes, that's actual snow, though I'm sure every one of you north of the Red River is laughing. Granted, it wasn't much, but it sure looked pretty coming down. Considering we were 80 degrees on Christmas Day, I'd say it was a nice departure.
And when the snow moved out, we were left a beautiful sunset.
Of course, there's always time to catch up with family.
So that's what I've been up to these past few weeks. Now it's your turn.
What have you been doing as 2017 begins?
