Happy New Year everyone! I spent the holiday on a beach in Mexico, and it was the best, I highly recommend it. But now I am suffering in the cold, not used to working, or moving, or wearing clothing other than a bathing suit. Alas. It’s time to start 2013, since we are already 10 days in. And what a coincidence – last year my resolutions were all about 10. How did I do?
- 10 pies – Accomplished!!!! Plum, apple, keylime, chocolate, snickers, peach, cherry/blueberry, cherry, plum, apple tart and 1 other that I can’t be bothered to research right now.
- 10 science experiments – Um, yes, accomplished!
- 10 blog posts per month – FAIL! I counted 43 blog posts, not 120.
- 10 crafts – In addition to doing my crazy craft day with Jack, I also finally made two aprons that I had meant to make the year before, so that was a success.
So, I didn’t write a lot in 2012, but I did do a lot. We spent a week skiing and snowboarding in Steamboat, we watched a lot of baseball (I think Luke played 60 games?), we went to Arkansas, we spent 5 days mountain biking in Fruita, we spent a week in Ohio, and we went to Mexico. I read 34 books, with only about a third of them being young adult books, so that isn’t bad either.
This year I have made 1 official resolution: write.
I plan to write every day, for the entire year. My minimum is a page in my journal, but I hope to average at least one blog post a week, and maybe do some work on that book that is languishing on my computer.
Other tinier, resolutions, or more accurately, “things I am considering doing” are:
Ride my bike more -(average at least an hour a week in strava)
Ride a century? Maybe, we’ll see.
Read 40 books.
I feel like I need to add something food related. Have 10 dinner parties? Ten seems like a lot. Maybe 1 dinner party per season. That seems easy and doable.
OK – world, now you know my plans.
Happy New Year!
