Big Trees

We saw...

really HUGE...

trees! Today Josh and I went up to Calaveras Big Trees State Park about 60 miles east of Stockton. We were both in awe of the size of these things. The craziest thing was the 30 foot diameter stump we got to stand on! We also really enjoyed trompsing around in the snow in our boots.

A change in the...

weather! We woke up to some chilly temperatures this morning! Sacramento broke records for the low overnight, coming in at 24ยบ. Of course it was all over the news, "Frost on the ground!" and "You can see your breath!"

Top 10 of 2009

Josh and I continue to be members of Minnesota Public Radio and stream 89.3 The Current on our iPhones even in California. Every year they do a Top 89 of the year's new songs. Listeners submit their top 10 and they compile the list for a New Year's countdown. Josh and I both submitted our lists, and then combined for a master list. They are:

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros/Home
The XX/Crystallized
Hockey/Too Fake
Basement Jaxx/Raindrops
The Heavy/How You Like It Now?
Solid Gold/Get Over It
Gossip/Love Long Distance
Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johansson/Relator
Passion Pit/The Reeling

New Desk Chair

Saturday Josh and I drove into the city to get a new desk chair. My old one had a rip in the seat and I've been eying this one for awhile after a long search for it. It's a reproduction of an Eames Aluminum Management Chair. I wish I could have gotten the real thing, but we thought $1500 was a little pricey.

Holiday Lights

Yesterday we attended the annual Lodi Light Parade for the second year in a row. The parade had a 1950's theme. Above is a float decorated like a 50's style car.

On the way home we saw this house from the interstate. We had to get off at the next exit to get a closer look.
