Happy New Years!

It’s a pleasantly quiet start to 2010. I don’t know where the last decade went though. It seems like it just flew by.

I stage managed Crimes of the Heart, and went directly from that to acting in One Flew Over the Cockoo’s Nest, had a foggy summer that somehow flew by, and then Stage Managed Jekyll & Hyde. I need a bit of a break from theatre now. I think I got a little burnt out after the last show. Its not easy doing the full-time day job and stage managing.

In 2009 I also gave World of Warcraft a try, and through it I was able to reconnect with a couple of friends who have moved away who play. I also made my wayy through a handfull of games for the xbox360, most recently DragonAge and Assassin’s Creed 2.

I have been doing a lot of knitting. No doubt that will continue in the new year. There are a lot of projects that I want to get done.

Oh yeah – my community garden plot! That was a fun new project last summer. I’ve renewed the lease to my plot and am already thinking about what I’ll plant in it next year. The radishes, snap peas, beets, lettuce and catnip were very successful so no doubt they’ll be back. I’m not sure if I’ll try tomatoes again, although I might give spaghetti squash another go. I love the smell of the freshly-tilled earth. Only 4 more months of cold weather to get through first.

I didn’t get as much hiking done as I would have liked to this year. It’s tough when you can only really do big hikes on the weekends, and I think we had rain almost every weekend last summer. At least I managed to get out for regular runs at the Irving Nature Park. What better way to get a little exercise than going for a jog along a trail on a cliff next to the ocean (with a high chance of seeing deer/fox/porcuipines)?

Anyway, here’s to hoping 2010 will be a fantastic year for everyone!
