A New Year is Coming...
I read my friend Deb's post this evening and it compelled me to sit down and write this because she said some things I can relate to. These past few weeks I have been taking it easy on the computer and as this year is drawing to an end I have been thinking lots lately about blogging or lack thereof and it has forced me to look at the things I want to accomplish this year and a couple changes you will notice.
You may have already noticed but I made the decision to no longer share my Project Life pages. There are a few reasons for this, but mostly I feel that was all I posted last year. My Project Life album is a form of recording my life and I don't really feel it is necessary to record it twice (blog + album). So perhaps I will share snippets from my album or something new I have discovered rather than weekly spreads. I may however share them on my Instagram feed with other poject lifers on the #pojectlife feed.
A big change that happened this year was reading! Lordy, have I missed reading. In 2011, I read two books, "Pillars of the Earth" - which I loved and "the Poisonwood Bible" which I did not like so much. In January this year I promised myself I would become a better reader and without looking back, I believe I had a goal of 10 books (either 10 or 12). I have just finished reading my 16th book and fear I won't finish the one I am currently reading in time for Januay 1st, because our plans have changed for the New Year! No matter though. I have already got my list of books for 2013 and I want to exceed 16 and try for 25! So for now, you may hear me mention the books I am reading. I wanted to do a post of all the books I read this past year, but I might do a layout instead.
Photos. I hate to admit this but I have pulled out my Canon once in the past month. Yikes. Mysteriously, though I have added 1000 photos to my November & December folders. Yes, in 6 weeks I have taken 1000 photos with my iPhone. I will continue to share photos and you will have already noticed a change to my blog header. I will switch them out to give more visual interest.
I have a few other things I want to focus on personally this year and that is exercise and nutrition. I plan to sign up for Cathy's Move More Eat Well class over at Big Picture Classes and take the time to be a part of the community. I am also looking into Yoga and making a stronger commitment to going to the gym.
Other interests you may see are drawing, photography and painting.
So after saying all that, I am uncertain of the frequency of my posts at this time because I have lots of things I want to "accomplish". I will find a rhythm though, this I am certain of.
I want to take the time to thank each and every one of you for stopping by and visiting my little world and I look forward to seeing you in the New Year!
Happy New Year bloggers! And to friends and family too!
