Ok, I admit it. I’m writing tonight just to write something in this empty place…

The weekend has been nice and slow and relaxing. I’ve spent time knitting, reading, hangin’ with my fabu husband, and just plain having a good time.

Long weekends rock!

veggies and fruit, oh my

Today was the first day of my once a month fruit/veggie delivery from Farm Fresh to You. I know, you’re thinking once a month? Why so often? Yeah. Yeah. Look, I want to eat all this good stuff, but I find that it becomes a little daunting and if this showed up once a week there would be lots of wasted food in the trash. The idea is to start off slow and simple and see where it leads. Any ideas?

The rest of the day has been less exciting. Leeloo went to puppy day care today. I found her sprawled out sleeping this evening. She is so exhausted from all the fun!

what are you doing? I’m sleeping over here…

a few resolutions

I haven’t made resolutions for years. I mean, I’m the consummate list maker and I can’t remember the last time I actually sat down and made long terms lists/goals. Forever. Well, that has all changed in the last few days and not only that I’m going to make it public. Oh the humanity! Probably actually not that big of a deal. See me in 2012 and we’ll discuss how I did.

  • Complete 12 knitting projects. One a month. This started from some people talking about knitting their sock stash down, but I just need to get some things done. Oh, and all 12 projects must be from stash yarn, not shiny new stash.
  • Start a business. Purposefully vague.
  • Meditate on a more regular basis. This means more than every two weeks or never.
  • Read at least six books on my bookshelf. I bought a Kindle to save room, yet I still have a bookshelf full of books that are unread. Ridiculous.
  • Start a podcast, vlog, videocast. Something. Anything.
  • Learn more about wine. I love wine and there’s this awesome wine bar, Hotel Biron, down the street. What more can a girl ask for?
  • Write more letters. Not emails. Not post some crap on Facebook. Real letters that needs stamps.
  • Learn French. I took Spanish in school and know enough to be pseudo dangerous. French seems more exciting.
  • Turn my craft room into the best space for me to relax and be creative in. That means corralling the mess into something lovely. That also means taking at least 30 minutes a week to purge and organize.
  • Write more. Journaling. Blogging. Anything counts.

And there you have it folks, my goals for 2011. Thoughts?

the sun could come out

Morning world! It’s raining, again.

I spent the past hour or so reading through blogs on Google Reader and I still have 141 to go. I’m such  a glutton for punishment… I really need to use the “mark all read” button more often, but what if I miss something great? Could happen.

So it’s 10AM Sunday, a new year has started and I’m still in my PJ’s. Maybe I should do something a little more constructive with my day besides blog reading and playing games on Sally (I named my iPad, if you were wondering).
