Since my job is centered around sales quarters, I never know what my New Year's Eve is going to look like and I have never made any plans. This year was the same... I checked email in the morning on Saturday and everything seemed fine so I took off for the house. Poor Nick had to work New Years day at the golf course, so he stayed behind. But he did go to SF to watch the fireworks with his friends and they had a great time.
Not much going on at the house right now in terms of work. (Too cold in the morning and it gets dark early!) I am still going to every fruit tree and removing weeds and checking the drip emitters to see if they are clogged, which is most of them. Getting prepared to plant the new apple trees I ordered when they come in mid- January. It is scary how dry everything is right now, especially after the last 2 years of just torrential rain. We really need some rain and snow or it is going to be a tough summer. Here are some shots of the property of things that I thought were nice.

This is my Shitake mushroom log that I started this summer, it really isn't doing anything yet. Hopefully it will start showing signs of fungus!
And of course, my old lady Casey laying down watching me work. She is having a hard time with the stairs and allergies when she is up there, but she really does love it. You can see it when we arrive and she gets out and runs around sniffing and other things....
