Welcome to a New Year

So 2010 has arrived and it may be the start of a new decade for some and the end for others (depends on whether year zero is counts I guess). Anyway, here in Nova Scotia we started out with a bang. That is snow, crazy temps and add in some rain as well. But now that it has that out of its system we have been fairly blessed with mild (near freezing) daily temps and little new snow. Good.

Of course all this new snow and wet roads mean that I still can't properly take out my new bike which I purchased from the good folks at Sport Wheels. It is just far too pretty to get dirty this early in its life. Instead I still ride my good trusty old commuter mountain bike. It rarely lets me down and generally when it does it is actually my fault.

The new year also brings about new changes at my work. While I was working solely on the conservation and restoration of Archaeological finds these past 10 years, I am now moving into the Parks Canada Furniture and Wooden Objects conservation and restoration lab. New and exciting things ahead for me.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season as well. I did in Colorado with my extended family. We even flew our little dog Newt down with us for vacation. And while she doesn't care much for cold and snow, she had a blast getting all sorts of attention from all sorts of new people.

Here's looking forward to more exciting things in 2010. I include in that the possibility of me doing a Triathlon this year. Swimming lessons are now paid for and start in a few days. More on that in the future.

Take care.
