Like so many other people around the world I hope this new year brings joy and excitement and good surprises. I want to learn something new, forget something old, and make a new friend. I want travel, and laughter, and riches beyond compare, but not the financial kind.
This year’s mantra is “Stop Saying, Start Doing.”
I’ve already posted about my 101 things, and mentioned that I’m going back to participating in WIPocalypse. My page for that is set up. I’ve tried to limit it to 5 stitching things and 5 quilting things. That’s not to mean there won’t be more done in those areas, just those 10 things I’d like to finish in 2015.
There are several authors I have on my wish list that I’ve never read and I’d like to read at least one of them. I also starting reading the Bible through today. I’m using The One Year Bible for Women by Tyndale House Publishers. I’ve asked Melissa to use her excellent card making skills and make me a bookmark.
I want to keep expanding my cooking skills and try several new recipes. I have a couple of cookbooks I haven’t cooked from yet and am anxious to try them out.
I’m recreating my household journal this year since I want to be better at managing my time. I don’t want the internet to suck my valuable time away, especially with the things I need to do for COMICON and my new Arizona Quilters Guild position, so I plan to continue to use my timer when I’m at the computer. Less internet suckage equals more reading, quilting and stitching, too!
I want to go back to that mountain and try another, and another, and another. I bought some new, warmer, workout clothes a couple of days ago and got rid of the “nothing to wear” excuse I’ve been using since the weather got cold to us, so I’m headed back out to my daily walks. I also want to get back to my Zumba classes so studio shoes are on my shopping list, too.
While there are many, many more things I’d like to do in 2015, they’re just brewing in the back of my mind and if they happen, I’ll share.
May 2015 bring all my readers what they seek.
