Welcome 2011

To the end of the year and the beginning of a new one

I wish for you health, happiness and true friends.  May your hearts be full, may your hands never want and may your heads be full of dreams that will come in true as we welcome 2011
Thank you to everyone that reads and follows C.K.K.  I can't believe that Calamity Kate has been such a blessing to me in its short, 4+ months. Though Calamity Kate, I have made so many new and wonderful friends. After nearly a year of Not Just Vanilla, I left it in February, I vowed to never start another blog. The stress and the pressure were effecting my everyday life. I rarely got any pleasure out NJV. But by early August, I had enough and my fingers started to twitch. On August 24 I started Calamity Kate's Kitchen. I wanted to remain true to myself with out adding stress. Since this blog, other than cooking, is my only creative escape from life, I wanted to bring happiness and joy to me, myself and I only. I didn't want to care about comments or followers. This was just for ME. But in the end, I do care about comments and followers. Anytime someone leaves a note or finds CKK and follows, it makes my day. All I can say is... who knew that what was for me alone to love and escape to everyday, would bring such wonderful friends! 

Happy New Year to all of my new friends! 

Emily Miller
Then sing, young hearts that are full of cheer,
With never a thought of sorrow;
The old goes out, but the glad young year
Comes merrily in tomorrow

Thanks to Roberta, the only twitter friend who makes me  laugh out loud!


  1. Happy New Year to you too!
    This spring fever weather had me out pulling weeds this morning, ha!

  2. Wow! I got to watch the beautiful weather pass by as I was working. I am glad you got to enjoy it... it left us too quickly! Now back to our regularly scheduled cold, snowy, icy weather.
