2010 had it's bad moments: think PCOU (postal counter of unjoy), having to reconnect with family members I hadn't seen in 30 years when my mother passed-That is for another post. No wonder I hadn't seen them in 30 years, I saw a lot of judgement in their eyes, people you never knew the whole story.
But it had it's great moments too: I spent 2 weeks in Maine (one of my all-time favorite places), I got a job (PCOU), we have less debt than before, we finally re-did the hall, I lost 30 pounds, I made great friends, I feel so much better about myself both physically and mentally (it's true what they say about the 40's). The Dan meister and I are more in love today than 20 years ago.
I got interviewed about Pyrex for a Toronto newspaper, One of my pics made it to Explore on Flickr. I conquered roast beef,turkey and creme brulée. All nuggets of JOY!
I measure my life in joy. If I mostly remember joy than the year was a success! I try to find joy everywhere I can, it's what keeps me going!
Xmas Eve appetizer: Cheese fondue with green salad. Vintage Xmas tablecloth, vintage salad plates, Pyrex bowls and zero alcool bubbly.
The 2010 vintage scene was amazing! But not a lot of Pyrex...
Oh well better luck next year!
For 2011 I want a great job where they will appreciate me and my work and where I will make a decent salary (no minimum wage). I might get a call in January....
I want to hop back on the weight loss bandwagon, my journey is not done!
I want to overhaul the flower borders; there's a lot of mayhem there, tons of weeds!
I want to read more, watch less TV (like that could happen!)
That's yours truly with the pie bear of Puzzle Mountain Bakery in Maine (near Poland Springs).
Wishing you a great New Year! May all your dreams,resolutions, projects and whatnot come true. May you have the strenght to follow trough.
But most of all Merry Thrifting and use your Pyrex!
