Cooking, Crafting, Dreaming…it's what I do

Jump Start on Goals for the New Year December 29, 2009

Well, the hustle and bustle of Christmas is behind us – I hope you all had a wonderful one! Ours was a little…off , in some ways. My Mother spent Christmas Eve in the hospital, her oxygen had dropped dangerously low. She is home now, and hopefully on the mend. We’re worried, but will stay positive. My daughter’s future FIL had a stoke on Christmas, not his first I am afraid. Other than that – we did spend the holiday together with family and friends, and it was all it should be.

Still and all, it’s behind us – what lays ahead no one can really know. I however have learned to focus on things I can and do have an impact on, and let all else come to pass as it will or won’t.

That being said – my focus for 2010 is something that has been on my mind, and something I will be writing about some. It’s not so much that I plan to make any grand changes – but I do want to add onto some of the changes I have been working towards through the years.

Right now, I have 2 crochet projects in progress. One is an afghan for hubby and I to use on our bed.

The other project I have in progress is a throw for our living room. It’s also done in an alternate stitch, sc and slip stitches. It’s going to take a LOT of yarn for such a small thing. But, I love it. I apologize for the pictures, it’s not the camera this time – it’s me, LOL. My Dad gave me his camera which is a much nicer one than I had – I just have to learn to use it properly. Also something to work on into the new year 😉

Needless to say, one of the things I am focusing on this year is making things for our home. I have always dreamed of having a home filled with hand-made items, both for function and decoration.

I also plan to get started on making gifts for holidays and personal occasions through out the year – and not just starting in the fall. Procrastiation is not a virtue – which sucks, since I have such a skill for it.

Now the house is full – and it’s time to start dinner. See, I should have started posting earlier. Oh well, I guess I have some work to do in that one area.
