Looking back

In 2010, I …
  • Survived 4 months as Lauren’s single parent. Barely.
  • Spent a fun couple of days with her in New York.
  • Rowed on the lake in Central Park, and danced in a subway.
  • Found out why my ankle hurt so much, and spent six weeks in a cast.
  • Saw whales off-shore, and many dolphins close to shore.
  • Spent a wonderful birthday alone at Big Sur.
  • Hiked quite a lot. Fell hard while doing so. Ouch.
  • Made a slow-stitched garment, a la Alabama Chanin.
  • Attended a Civil War re-enactment.
  • Entertained Australian visitors (always welcome!)
  • Fed a lot of friends, and let them feed me.
  • Made a dress and a cardigan and about 50 gifts.
  • Flew downunder, where I drank tea and viewed great art with my sister, explored caves with her and my father, snorkeled with my children and grandson, planted natives with my great-niece, discussed spirituality and quilting and business with my girlfriends, and had more special times than I can sum up in one sentence.
  • Knitted a lace cowl.
  • Started sketching again.
  • Got back to yoga.
  • Became more introspective.
Here’s to another good year. I think it's going to be interesting.

Can't wait for 2011. Hopefully it will last a little longer than 2010 did. ;)
