New Year Catch-Up

Belated Happy New Year!  An appropriate greeting for my first post of 2008.  2007 went out with a bang.  Since Thanksgiving, we've had friends and family visiting us here along with a trip to sunny Florida to visit with some of the Incredible Digit Grandparents.  Of course, leaving the rainy and snowy Pacific Northwest in winter to visit sunny beaches is absolutely not a hardship.  Ironically, one of the places we visited in Florida was ICE! at the Gaylord Palms Resort.  This is a really spectacular exhibit of ice sculptures created by the same Chinese artists that create the Harbin Ice and Snow World every January in China's Zhaolin Park.  My brother-in-law treated us all to the experience and we enjoyed every minute of it.  Although, the Incredible Digit Girl was not too cheery by the end.  Since it's an indoor display, the indoor temperature is a whopping 9 degrees.  Although the organizers do provide some toasty warm parkas, our Digit Girl got progressively colder and crankier the longer we stayed.  I couldn't get even a grin out of her by the end of the tour....as evidenced below.

In contrast to my daughter looking and feeling "blue", I have found out that I am orange.  I was visiting the blog of a fellow PDX Knit Blogger, Girl With A Twist, and found a survey she had posted titled "What Color is Your Soul Painted?".  Since I'm usually intrigued with all kinds of colors, I took the test.  I like that I'm on the "warm" side of the spectrum. 

What color is your soul painted?


Your soul is painted the color orange, which embodies the characteristics of balance, heat, enthusiasm, flamboyance, playfulness, aggression, over-emotion, danger, desire, strengthens the ability to concentrate, attraction, adaptability, and stimulation. Orange falls under the element of Fire, and symbolizes glory and fruits of the earth.
