I am excited!  I get to go to the Women's March in Denver this weekend with my soon to be 13 yr old girlie.  I think it's so awesome to show her that as women/girls, our importance is not in our clothing size,  bra size, or any of that other stuff we are so often judged on.  We have hearts that love, & voices to be heard...I'm sure it's going to be quite a thing to be a part of :)

So I guess I was going along with my pro-women theme, & made this lady the other day.  Who knows how she ended up shirtless, perhaps I was a little lazy about painting clothes?  Anyway, she's got a few words from the Maya Angelou poem I like.

Hiking, Llama Treks...just my yearly goals

Here is how I hope 2017 goes down...

1) I do the Rocky Mountain Half Marathon.
2) I check on what I need to do to get my artwork in a local store/gallery.  Even if it doesn't sell, at least I will have put myself out there.
3) We fix up our barn & make an exercise room in it.
4) I hike(with the husbo) one of the 14,000 foot peaks here(Huron Peak or Mt. Elbert).
5) Get my Alpaca friends or a Mini Cow.
6) Learn to weave on a loom.
7) Go on a Llama Trek(hike & picnic with Llama)...yes, this is an actual thing!

Happy New Year to you!  Hope 2017 is the year your try something new :)

Year End

Christmas was pretty calm & peaceful.  We had absolutely no place to go this year.  So the kids got to tinker with their new toys all day, which was nice.  I say this every year, but it's always over so fast!  Now we are headed towards the New Year in a couple days.  I've been thinking about what things I want more of, & what things I want less of in my life for 2017.  What things I want to try(weaving on a loom, hiking the high peaks around here). Which races I'd like to sign up for.  Much thinking.

In this new year I hope to continue to seek out cool people whom I can connect with.  I know I'm not good at shallow friendships, it's such a waste to me.  I just want to be with people more & more who are okay with putting themselves out there.  It's a little discouraging when you share deep things with people & it's not reciprocated.  Luckily that doesn't happen all the time, or with everyone.  Just wanting to spend more time with people who get it, I guess.

Also, I plan on continuing to work on all my mixed thoughts about my relationship with God & His followers :) And as always....working on my self & my lovely array of issues.  Hoping 2017 is a productive year!
