In with the New

   Happy 2012 

     How to start the new year? Resolutions? Not a chance, I don't make resolutions, I roll with it (as much as I'm able). Plans? Other than more aspirin, sleep and fluids? Some, nothing set in stone, but a general direction - very general. I tend to let the year unfold, offering up its opportunities and challenges as it will. What does 2012 hold in store? I can hardly wait to find out.

     It seems only fitting to start the new year by taking a quick look back at the year just passed.  I'll begin by saying thank you to all the people who have followed along with me here in the "Kitchen". I started it with a rather singular focus, oh how that has changed. Thanks for all the comments, emails and encouragement. The biggest surprise of 2011 has been the success of my little piece of cyberspace and how much I have enjoyed doing it.

     To all of you out there, may 2012 be a happy and prosperous year. (Mayan end of the world thing and a rather crappy movie even though I like John Cussack and Amanda Peet not withstanding) Enjoy.

     BTW, I was not alone in not knowing how to dress for the "Nice and Steezy" New Year's Eve Party. Lots of fun, some great get-ups and friends.  Thanks Tris and Heather. (and you too Dimitri LMAO)    


  1. Happy New Year, Paul!

    You should participate in Monday Listicles tomorrow with Stasha at The Good Life. The topic this week is resolutions that maybe should be on your list, but you don't intend to keep.

  2. Happy New Year to you as well Jennifer
    I'll have to swing by that site.
    I'm a whiz at not keeping resolutions.


Thanks for your comment, I hope you enjoyed your time in the "Kitchen".
