Happy New Year, blog!
It’s been unseasonably cold in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area, for you Americans and non-GTA residents) the past couple weeks. It’s also been about a week since the official end of the holiday season, which is an unfortunate double whammy of bummers. It’s usually around this time that I decide winter is no longer useful nor validated, but we still have a looooong way to go.
I’ve spent most of this week inside, but have left the house a couple times, including a trip to the unfortunately-named “Dutch Oven” in Orno to meet a gentleman who so kindly sold me his Nikon D80. He was a sweet, nerdy man who offered to take wedding photos for me after scoping out my rock. I didn’t want to explain my strange and complicated situation so I said “maybe” and pocketed his business card.
I’m trying to read most of the manual before I get too carried away with the camera, but so far, I love it! My favourite models, Jillian and Ben, were over the other day to pose for me.
In other non-camera or weather-related news, Nick and I both made lists of our goals for 2010 around New Year’s Eve and here are a couple of mine:
- get married
- take at least one class
- read at least 10 new books (I’m doing great on this one, as I’m currently reading 3 books at once, not counting my driver’s manual or my camera manual)
- get my beginner driver’s license
- add new dishes to my baking/cooking repertoire
- write at least one blog and/or She Does the City entry per month
- keep doing yoga every other day
Nick’s are way better as they include things like tattoos and sharks, but I’ll leave that to him to start his own blog. Let’s just say, we hopefully have a road trip around Texas coming up!
Hi, you forgot to mention one of the hottest summer foodie attraction, Red Hook Park in Brooklyn.
For over 30 years this group of 10 or 12 vendors from South and Central American and Mexico sells
authentic ethnic food such as Salvadoran Pupusas, Colombian, mexican and much more.

Thanks, Marcos! Did you mean to comment on the NYC/BK guide I posted yesterday?
[…] turns out the easiest resolution to keep that I made for the new year is the “must read 10 new books” goal. This is not surprising as 1) I love to read and […]
