Welcome to the first Monday of the new year. Even though we don't do much to celebrate Christmas and New Years there is a very different feel for the season and it is nice to get back to something more mundane. The colder temperatures and snow flurries help restore the feeling of everyday normality.
The rye bread turned out really good. I am amazed how much better my home made tastes.
We have heard about the flooding but nothing on our TV news about the hit to Texas and New Mexico dairy industry. And nothing about the possible hit to our pocket books.
