My husband and I always “unplug” between Christmas and New Years. This year we enjoyed celebrating the winter holidays for the first time in our new home. It felt especially gratifiying to do a lot of nothing during our hiatus. The power of sleep and rest when it comes to our health is often overlooked. To us part of “being well” is to not only eat well and exercise our bodies and minds, but also occasionally “unplug” from it all. We are rested, renewed and ready take on 2010.
This year I look forward to producing new episodes of my web show, The Natural Princess. Sadly the show, a side project we do in our free time, was truly pushed to the side in 2009 while we focused on our “day job”. We plan to catch up and push ahead with the show in 2010. You can help with our plans: Are there CT or nearby NY farms you adore and would like to see on The Natural Princess? Let us know and we’ll see if we can get them on camera. Are there ingredients you’d like us to do recipes for on the show? We’ll try to get creative.
I also have plans for a garden at our new home. This winter I’ll research things and figure out what to plant. Herbs, tomatoes … Any suggestions? Last year my mother and I had moderate success with a small garden at her house. This year I’ll be on my own. Hopefully some of her gardening prowess rubbed off on me.
Let’s see what else is on my to-do list: Renew my CT NOFA membership, Get together with a few of my fellow CT food bloggers, develop some easy, interesting recipes for live cooking demos … there just is so much to look forward to!
What are your plans for 2010?
