The Year of "Doing"

A new year, another try. I spent much of 2010 reading. Reading magazines and blogs. Learning. Thinking. But not as much "doing" as I had hoped.

I am hoping that 2011 will be my year to test and stretch my crafty, baking and decorating skills.

Here are just a few things I hope to do this year...

  • Blog much more frequently. I love to write and share bits of our life with family and friends.
  • Get more cards published.
  • Actually send the cards I make!
  • Bake, bake and bake! I will remember that I can always send extras to the elevator with Adam.
  • Add "finishing" touches to our living spaces. I know that I will never be done, but there are some parts of this house that have yet to be touched since we moved in a year and half ago.
  • Be still. I have always been good at filling time, not always with something productive. I want to leave some room in my life to be still and and chill with God more often.

And because every post needs a picture, here is little Melody when she was only a few weeks old...before she learned that she can destroy an "indestructible" rope toy in less than 10 minutes!!

What lovely ideas for 2011 it seems more and more people are moving away from the tried and tested 'loose weight, clear out the closet and pay of the credit card (perhaps thats a good one) and making more Spiritual resolutions. Good luck with them and cute dog....
