Surfing around blogs today I saw that Pam made a list of things that she planned to be doing tomorrow, to keep with the tradition that what you do on New Years Day, you will do for the rest of the year! So…. I thought I might do something similar to start off all those resolutions I am making.

  1. Eat healthy throughout the day, and drink 1 1/2-2 liters of water!! I will be starting Weight Watchers again to get my weight under control again. I was down to 120 after DD2 Aisling was born, but have just gained and maintained at about 175 for the last 2 years…not good enough anymore, I want to get healthy, and anyone that wants to join in with me, come along!! I think I will start a new page here for Weight Watchers stats etc…
  2. Quilt a Dear Jane Triangle. I hope to get this quilt done in time for the August Festival of Quilts in Birmingham.
  3. Sew a gift for a friend. I hope to sew or quilt a little each day that I can, nothing new about this though, lol, it is in the blood. I will be working on a few gifts (head cold permitting, I am the queen of laziness right now!) for friends babies, and a very special bear using the chenille robe of a dear friend’s mom who passed away, kind of a memory gift for her, she didn’t have too much cotton for a memory quilt.
  4. Knit Dave’s felted slippers. I hope to knit a bit each evening as well! I find it so relaxing!!
  5. Going to pull out the rag rug that I bought 10 or more years ago!! Would love to get back into this again!!
  6. Go for a walk. Even if it is just a small one with the girls and Dave to get started! Hope to get the energy to walk as often as possible to get girls to school, etc!
  7. Use my dishcloths and scrubbies instead of sponges and paper towels. I hope to get more “green” and environmentally conscious this year, using less paper, less water, less electricity, less petrol… I hope to make these part of the daily routine, like recycling has become.
  8. Read a book in bed by 11pm. No more staying up late…will read in bed at a reasonable time!!

DSCF2512Have been working on some felted slippers for Dave since last night…they are so huge before felting it is funny! Have a peek… This went pretty fast, but have lost concentration this afternoon! Trying to get my head around the goals I have for the New Year. I really want this to be a year for positive changes.
