Welcoming in the New Year

Here are some things I am inviting into my life in the coming year:

Visit a state park once a month.

Learn to knit.

Spend one day a month volunteering.

Give blood four times.

Make our own laundry soap, shampoo and body wash.

Take time on Fridays to scrapbook.

Add six new recipes to my menu-by-the-month plan.

Read for pleasure every day.

Become adept at finding new uses for what we have.

Send more letters of gratitude.

Write one published article.

Mail postcards to friends just because.

Spend a few days each month reorganizing
one area of the house.

Change the pictures on the walls.

Engage my lil' guy in a physical activity everyday.

Acquire a bike and use it often.

Learn more about bartering for the things we want.

Increase yoga time to 30 minutes per day.

Decrease the use of white sugar.

Learn more about the technical aspects of blogging.

Revise the Household Notebook.

Wake up saying "Thank you".

Sending blessings out to all who come this way
in the New Year.  Thank you for sharing,
for caring and for helping me
become more of who I am.
