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, 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.

    Well, you’ve seen how well my stash dieting has gone so far! Hopefully this year will be better on that front. I don’t think my book situation will improve until I find more time to read!
