From T.S. Eliot’s “Little Gidding” —
For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
Happy New Year! 366 days have come and gone, and now a new year has begun. As always, the beginning of the year is a time of hope and anticipation. And, of course, a time of resolutions.
Here are mine:
1. Paint the basement and put up the curtain walls.
2. Work on creating my “mom cave” so I can be creative without distractions.
3. Finally finish college and have a graduation party!
4. Read all of the books that I got for Christmas, before next Christmas.
5. Write letters to my grandmother once a month.
6. Stick to the budget I created last fall, which was completely disregarded in December…
7. Schedule time to be alone, time to be with my kids (individually), and time to be with my husband.
8. Put up pictures in the hallway.
9. Work on Lillia’s ballet performance scrapbook.
10. Grow some stuff! (Vegetables, flowers, whatever strikes my fancy).
11. See my friends at least once this year. I miss them.
12. Learn how to use my new camera — techniques and composition.
13. Work on the Anna Maria Horner feather quilt (the only craft on this list, for a good reason).
