We also took down our Christmas tree and other various holiday decorations. It was more of a fun enterprise than a sad one though - the tree was really really dead and needles were falling everywhere, which the cat decided to play in. It was also quite a feat getting it out the front door. But our home is back to some semblance of normalcy, though it feels a bit naked to me.
There were plenty of New Year's posts to read all around the blog world and I have been forging connections and discovering new and interesting online spaces as well. Everyone seems to be reflecting on the past year in addition to anticipating the new, and it got me thinking about what a big year 2010 was for me. I got engaged in February, started this blog in the summer, which I have come to love so very much, became the proud owner of a playful kitten, and enrolled in graduate school. Even better, all of these things are sure to bring about more excitement in the future - my upcoming wedding, a (hopefully) growing blog readership, more posts, more of Digby's (the rambunctious kitten's) hilarious antics, and finally going back to school!
In keeping with my own personal goals for 2011, I tried to capture a few more shots from my weekend than I'm usually wont to do, though there was little action to capture. Most of these images are of our hearty and healthy Sunday-night dinner: whole wheat penne with chicken, roasted peppers, and sun-dried tomatoes. Delicious!
|I know, I know... cherries aren't in season and who knows where these guys were shipped from and all that bad|
stuff. But I just cannot resist cherries. Especially at $2 a pound. I caved at the grocery store big time.
