New Year, new resolve

I was reading the Yarn Harlot’s post this evening in which she talks about having a list for New Year’s Day in which you try and do a little of all the things you hope to do during the year. While I don’t think that it would have much of an effect on what actually happens, it’s a nice idea. This is what I’ve been doing today:

  • Finished a novel – Successor’s Promise by Trudi Canavan
  • Gone for a walk
  • Listened to a podcast – Zigzag
  • Spent time reflecting on the year
  • Played board games with the family (lost every single one today)
  • Cooked a meal with lots of veg
  • Written a fair amount – my daily words on 750words.com, plus this post
  • Looked at my books and planned what to read this year
  • Planned my knitting for the next few weeks
  • Watched a bit of tv
  • Read to the kids (Eragon to T)
  • Blogged – having not done so for six months, although I’ve written more than ever in that time.

My main resolution this year is to consume less – or at least to use what I have before just buying new stuff. This applies to knitting and reading. I don’t think I’ve bought anything today, so I wonder how long that can go on. I’ve got a long list of suggested books (both real and e-book) to read, plus some plans of matched up knitting patterns and stash. I may join the yarn harlot in her Self-imposed sock club.

The only thing really missing is to do some knitting. That’s what I’m off to do now.
