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.
