Celebrating the First Sunrise of 2018--Happy New Year !.......or Happy New From Frigid S. Texas...27 degree's and Droppimg

As I sit here and reflect on the past 12 months.... it may seem as one of little activity compared to past years....and in the way of adventures with the Casita, or Grandkids, or multiple trips up to Kansas City and Charleston, etc, it was kinda benign. Though I did take The Albino Armadillo(Ms Casita) on two short  trips...which I thoroughly enjoyed....and we did go to Kansas City and attend the wedding of one of our Daughters...which in itself made this a very memorable year.

More important is that it was a year that was good to us in terms of health, agility, mobility,  and so many more blessings..The Children and Grandkids are doing well  in all respects, our Friends are well. Yes we are doing better than "just fine".......sure there where speedbumps this year that slowed us down or caused us to change direction, but that seems to  continually occur, Its called ageing....and as long as I can put one foot in front of the other and can call it "walking", I'm happy... and the good news is, it hasn't yet changed our life or lifestyle...

Instead of  celebrating the last sunset of 2017...I am elated to be able to witness and celebrate the first sunrise and moonrise of 2018...with that I close and  share one of my favorite photo's of each.....To all of my Blogging Friends, I wish the Coming Year be Filled with Good Health, New and Exciting Adventures...and much Joy....Thanks for stopping By!  Horst sends

...........and one more "reminder" why it is that all of us love this Lifestyle!

  1. Happy New Year to you and yours. Agree on the cold. We stopped at Cranes mill coe on Canyon Lake for the holiday. Should have kept peddling west. Hear it's warm around El Paso. Hope your year is filled with joys beyond measure.

    1. Thanks...did not realize you where roaming around Texas this soon..we just keep missing...ok well. Its still cold in the mornings, though yesterday it warmed up to 51 degrees... safe travels my Friend...Horst sends

  2. Horst, Happy New Year to you and your family. Sorry I am late with our comments to you, just got a bit sidetracked.
    I always enjoy your sunset/sunrise pics, in Texas the sky is so wide open it makes for great pics.
    Your sunrise pic kind of represents another new beginning as does the new year. Yes, it truly is a wonderful lifestyle...A healthy new year wish for you and yours.

    1. ...and a Very Happy New Year to both of you and Family...I hope all is well with you..and that you are planning new adventures for the coming year...take care and may Good Health and fun journeys be with you in 2018! Horst sends
