My friend Luna Raven recently posted her 2011 “Did It” List, inspired by one of her friends and I love all the things she got done this year. Thus inspired I thought I should join the club and write about my accomplishments too.
I attended the Fancy Food Show and scored twelve pounds of amazing blue cheese. (no picture, we ate it all!)
I gathered up all my courage and borrowed lots of courage from friends and had surgery to repair my shoulder from a tragic high fiving injury when we won the World Series in 2011.Two months later I did not listen to my doctors orders and returned to work a month early, which is why one should not make important decisions while taking pain medication! Major life lesson learned! (Is that technically an accomplishment?)
(note to the surgeon)
I am still in physical therapy due to yet another accident while riding MUNI. My accomplishment there is patience and learning to follow directions and care for myself, and, even though it’s embarrassing, sit in the disabled seats on the bus.
My friends and I made ten different kinds of macaroni and cheese on my birthday at a huge blowout party, and we almost ate them all!
I knitted my 26th pair of socks and learned how to darn them.
I launched a new blog – The Inadvertent Redhead – as an outlet for my non-food related talents, and I love it! And yes, I’m still a redhead!
Because of my blog and social media I was invited to a multitude of wonderful parties and events and I feel so privileged to have these opportunities and to know so many wonderful writers, cooks, chefs, photographers, stylists and artistan food producers from many genres.
Despite all the challenges and sadnesses of this year it has been a really good one and I am looking forward to many fun things in 2012.
