Hi folks! I hope you have all been enjoying the beginning of a new year in whatever fashion seems best to you.
We have enjoyed a very relaxing break away from household cares, followed by a fun few days staying with my friend Tink in northern Tasmania, and now we are back home. Although there have been photos taken, and knitting vigorously pursued (mostly in the car), the pictorial contributions will have to wait.
For now I will respond to KissMyFrog‘s first post for 2011: Not Resolutions.
I was talking to my mother on New Year’s Eve, and she listed her Resolutions, but I was loath to make sweeping statements of any kind due to an intimate acquaintance with my own slackadaisical attitude to pursuing any such resolutions, or even remembering that there had been resolve in the first place. Instead I’m going to pinch a word from Leonie, and have an intent.
My intent for 2011 is to Follow Through.
This could be following through with my plans to knit a Ruby Red Twist to wear to Bendi in July, or my plans to knit more socks, or my hope of cooking more things which are new to me each month, or of being a little less self-indulgent about the waist, or to ride my new bike more, or to tidy up my desk at work and find a way to maintain a reasonable level of organisation thereupon….
Whatever the plan or idea or project, I want to remind myself to Follow Through.
There’s enough intent in those two words to fill a lifetime, I’m thinking, so watch out 2011!!!!
