Well I am already behind on my this blog and many other things I had meant to get done in 2010.
The NYE party that Mike and Karen hosted was great. And in the morning of January 1 I made it home to get some sleep.
When I woke up I had one more party to attend. I have some friends up in rural Marin county who throw a New Years Day party starting about 5:00PM. Getting from my home to their place is between two and three hours drive each way depending on traffic. I got started a bit later than I had intended but traffic was light and I arrived at their place at about 5:00PM. It had been rainy and misty. Their house is at the top of a rather steep and curvy driveway. In years past I had parked up at the house but this year I decided to park at a flat area set aside for parking at the base of their drive near the road. The grass was so slick with moisture that I had to try several times before I could get my car parked. Then the hike up the drive. But is was worth it. Lots of interesting conversation and good food. But eventually I had to leave and head back home.
The next day I got up and the weather was great. I rode my bicycle to the local Sunday Farmers Market and got some fruits and vegetables. Then that evening there yet another party hosted by my friends Dave and Spring. It was great. Lots of people, conversation, food, drink. It was fun.
One party to end 2009 and two parties to start 2010; a good start.
