A Year of Sunrises and Sunsets

     Sitting here this morning, my little Boston snuggled next to me and my cuppa Joe at easy access for my right hand, I am watching the final sunrise of the year. Looking back, we have had a full year of sunrises. Some we have been able to watch, others have been covered by clouds but everyday that big orange ball in the sky has made its presence known.

Sunrise at the Snake River in summer.

We have had many experiences this past year. Some good, some not so good, but all of them we have learned from. From planning and building our chicken coop, our first baby chicks, the first egg, yard improvements, family reunions, gardening, loss of dear ones, too much time spent at the hospital and too much time spent away in the big City and so much more. All of these events have taught us something in some way or another and changed our thought process' in either large or small ways. Then there were sunsets. Everyday the sun set. Shedding its golden light over the hills of wheat, sometimes peaking through the clouds, other times bathing the countryside in that wonderful golden light that makes everything drip gold. My most favorite time of the evening.                                                            
Sunset from the hills east of us in winter.

     This last day of the year beginning with the sun shinning and day of quality time spent with my son enjoying the last days of holiday break before we get back to the grind again on Wednesday. It's going to be a great day! The end of a very quick but long year.
