Happy New Year
HAPPY NEW YEAR
To our readers I wish you many blessings. Personally I am happy that 2012 is quickly traveling to the rearview mirror. We lost my mother, our beloved dog, I spent most of the year packing and unpacking my suitcase. I usually don't make New Year's Resolutions and mostly no New Year's goals because I never stick to them. This year is different. Below are my goals (still can't quite bring myself to do resolutions) my thinking is if I look ahead and not behind me I might be happier this year.
I want to cross stitch 13 projects this year. Some are already UFO's that I will finish. There will be small, medium and large projects.
I want to read 75 books as thanks to Terri and her mom I am now the proud owner of a kindle. I am not sure why but this kindle haas made all the difference to my reading. I am reading faster on the kindle than I do with a book in hand. However I will continue to buy and read paper books.
I want to spend more time with my friend Glenda as I feel we both need the reconnection. Speaking of Glenda she did a wonderful thing this year she took me (the day before my mom's memorial service) away from it all and it was probably one of the few times I actually relaxed and had a really good time this year. She spoiled me rotten that day too :) and so of course that helped. LOL
I want to travel less and love more... and these are the most important things that I want to do but there are others.
I want to finish writing at least one book. I say this every year for the past seven but this time it feels more like this is my year not to be waylaid by family events.
Lastly I want to write more book reviews and interview authors for this blog. I no longer have any friends who write and the only connection I have with authors is the interviews and of course our group cozyarmchairgroup.
One goal is a lot more personal as I want to have more faith and less fear.
Okay back right after the first to announce the best books I read in 2012 and with the actual list of cross stitch projects I want to be stitched for 2013.
Happy New Year and please add your own goals, lists etc.....we are always interested in what you are doing and reading.
