New Year, New Year

3 Jan

I don’t know what it is about new years that makes even hardened cynics or those who have given up on everything have the hope that the new year will bring better things than the last. Each year is like a new cycle in time and each new cycle can be different than the last. I don’t know whether 2011 will be better than 2010 but we all might as well hope so!

Anyway, these are the things I am into this week

• Wearing a trench coat in January and not feeling cold. Last sunday we had the 6th biggest snow storm on record in New York City, this past sunday it was 50 degrees. It was cloudy and gloomy but still it was nice not to be freezing.

• Veniero’s Pasticceria & Caffe Desserts! Yesterday I headed down to Veniero’s for some amazing strawberry tarts! I highly recommend this New York institution (it’s been around since 1894), if you are ever in New York.

Veniero's

• Receiving random nice messages from friends and even strangers: always bringing some cheer to dreary winter days! The older I get, the more I realize it’s the simple things, like watching a child laugh, hearing a child say the innocent things only children say, or the random acts of thoughtfulness from friends that are the most capable of bringing happiness.

• Being able to knit for myself again: YES!

• Something I heart not: the end of the holidays – back to the humdrum of the rest of year.
