I spent two glorious weeks out of the range of computers and email and cell phones, the Internet a distant spectre. And I loved it.

We went to New Hampshire and enjoyed the time away. It was cold (12 - 15F) a couple of days (remember, I'm used to good ol' sunny California), but it also snowed a few inches while we were there.

Took a lot of fun pictures in the snow and just generally relaxed.

We arrived home to happy and well-fed chickens thanks to our neighbors and some relatives that stopped by each day to care for the cats and birds. Things were going swimmingly until Sunday afternoon when I suddenly, and for no good reason, remembered that I would have to return to work the next day.

Alas, I'm here and I'm motivated and ready to enjoy this new year.

What kinds of projects do you all have planned for this year? I'm not much of a "resolutions" person -- I prefer to make those kinds of decisions on an as-needed basis... But I know there are a few things we're planning...

This spring, we hope to have ripped out the old planting boxes and replaced them with a new configuration that will give us 30 - 50% more room. That's the first outdoor project we'll do, once the weather is nicer and I have more motivation/energy/vim/vigor/etc.

Happy new year, everyone!

  1. I am determined to finish a bunch of old projects this year - do the rewrites to a novel I wrote two years ago and never went back and "fixed" the way I wanted, finish a bunch of unfinished watercolors, grow a HUGE garden. Hope you & yours have a happy and successful 2010!
