Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, people of the western world! I hope New Year's Eve lived up to all your expectations.

I stayed home and read an excellent historical novel while eating a highly delicious cheese dip that I made myself, with celery sticks and slices of baguette on the side. Oh, and red wine, followed by 2 cups of orange-tinged hot chocolate, followed by actual chocolate, because dammit, the occasion called for a chocolate feast. I ate part of a Hershey Symphony bar, half of a Rummy bar, a single Ferrerro Rocher, and seven wedges of candied orange peel covered with dark chocolate that I expressly forbade my sister to give me for Christmas, but she did anyway.

Two days ago, I rode my bike across town to give blood (I'm a B positive, if anyone cares), and since then I've been very thirsty. I probably should have foregone this evening's chocolate and red wine, but I exercised today and took care to drink three litres of water before anything bad and dehydrating ever crossed the threshold of my lips.

Here's to 2011! I hope it brings all of you good health, happiness, and success in all your endeavors. And chocolate.

LOLOLOL! Brit, you are so funny. But all that chocolate sounds so yummy to my tummy. I'd like to try the dark choco candied orange peel - my mouth is watering.

I also stayed home to read. I'm half way through a mystery called 'High Chicago' by Howard Shrier. It takes place in Toronto & Chicago and the protagonist is a PI involved in a case involving a crooked commerical real estate tycoon. It is very good, imho. I'm pleasantly surprised - it took me a while to find this title for a good price, even on amazon!

Hooray for giving blood. Yes, it is very important to replenish your body after donating. I nearly fainted once - a very unpleasant side effect!

Happy New Year to you and yours. Here's hoping that 2011 will bring new and exciting opportunities to all of us, and the realization of our heartfelt dreams.

*big hugs*
