In the early morning hours I finished my first book of 2010, New York, a Novel by Edward Rutherfurd. It was a Christmas gift from my brother. I liked the structure of the book, tracing the history of the city from its early Dutch roots through 2001 through a series of fictional but representative families. It was interesting to learn about the early years because I have traced my own family tree back to one of the early New Amsterdam Dutch families, the Van Hoenkoven's
I seem to be doing well with my other resolutions, too. I am working on a lovely lavender prayer shawl and I have been preparing very healthy meals. I count those activities as creative, so I have met expectations on all four of my January resolutions.
Onward and upward!
