Happy New Year!

I have a feeling that 2010 is going to be a very good year.
A very, very good year...

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

Today I took down the x-mas tree. Got depressed. But then relieved. Started daydreaming about spring. Spring which is only about 4 months away. Outside it's snowing. Everywhere I look I see snow. But...

"When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad"

Buffalo Farm

We been visiting a buffalo farm which is located 45 minutes from Steamboat. We went around on a sled helping with the feeding of the animals. It was great to see how well taken care of they are. I guess it is true what the owner said. They can leave whenever they feel like it so we better keep them happy. Buffaloes are really cool animals and we learned a bunch.

It has officially started. The break. The three and a half week long break. Feels absolutely wonderful!

I thought I was going to give you some updates on our x-mas tree. A few days ago a package arrived from Sweden. A Swedish "Julgransmatta"! And yesterday a cute ornament from Baltimore got delivered. Thanks to both the moms!!

I also noticed a little box underneath the tree which seems to have come out of nowhere. What can it be?!

I did it again!

I ordered another pair of boots! Brown boots. To celebrate the beginning of my break.

Treating Myself

After finishing up my x-mas shopping I went ahead and ordered myself a couple too. For example these boots. I figured I deserve them.

Pretty good

Yesterday we went to listen to the Steamboat Springs Orchestra and their holiday concert. It was pretty good and afterwards we went to Cafe Diva and to their "Date Night" which was also pretty good. I am also feeling preety good about this Monday and have started the countdown to x-mas break!

Here we go again..

Tonight is the annual x-mas party for the college. I must say I fear it a little. You never know what's going to happen.

Betty is sick...

Betty is sick. She needs a new alternator.

Today I learned that alternators are used in modern automobiles to charge the battery and to power a car's electric system when the engine is running. I also believe I have found a decent mechanic who is able to perform the surgery on Betty.

I have been outside in the cold for over an hour and I am so cold it hurts! When Betty wouldn't start a couple of people tried to help jump start her but she just wouldn't have it. Just when I thought Betty's life was about to come to an end they told me about this one amazing car doctor. He was able to come to our rescue within a minute and he did a quick but convincing diagnosis on Betty. She needs a new alternator or she'll stay in this coma for the rest of her life. Since my wish is to keep her around for a little longer I am going to purchase the essential organ tomorrow.

A typical automotive alternator mounted in a spacious pickup truck engine bay. The alternator is at the center of the picture, driven by a belt and pulley.

Can someone please turn on the heat? (outside)

Today it's cold. Really cold! -25°C. Have a feeling Ugly Betty won't make it in to Steamboat. Actually, it's a good chance she won't even start.
