The First Day of 2010....

My first post of 2010! HB and I had a leisurely day....very enjoyable. I played a bit in the studio but nothing to show for it yet. I think it might take me a couple of days to actually create something that I can show. I'm so out of touch with my art right now!

We had our traditional dinner....cooked by HB. And we toasted in the New Year with a little bubbly....



Cheers!!

HB chopped up all the ingredients for some collard greens and cabbage....



He also made some cole slaw. We watched as the black-eyed peas and ham cooked on the stove....



When everything was ready he filled his plate....



And dug in! My contribution to the meal was the cornbread. I thinly sliced some onion and browned it in a little olive oil. When they were all browned I added about 1/2 cup of sour cream, then spread it over the cornbread batter and baked it. Yum!!

We always have this same dinner every New Year's day. We ate dinner at our new table again and lingered after the meal, just talking and reminiscing.

I hope you all had a nice day, too. I'm going to try to post each day this month. I haven't signed up for NaBloPoMo yet but I might. I didn't make any resolutions but I do have goals for this year. Namely I want to be a better person, I want to get healthier, to do more art, and to do better with my blog. I would also like to revive my photography blog but that's lower on my list. We'll see how things go. I'm behind on the two classes I'm taking right now and another one is starting on Monday! So I might be a touch busy!!

Here's wishing 2010 is a spectacular year for all of us.
