Be It Resolved
It's the time of year when we stop and think about the things we want to change in our lives and our behavior. I actually came up with my Resolution for 2008 about a week ago, and have been practicing. What? Isn't one resolution enough??
My resolution is to stop procrastinating. No more waiting a week or more to answer e-mails and messages. No more piling the socks to be hand washed by the side of the sink, until there's no room for my toothpaste tube and hairbrush. No more putting off the multitude of annoying chores and irritating tasks that crop up on a daily basis.
Hand in hand with that is to try to keep up with things I would like to accomplish every day, like blogging and keeping up in my journal. Mostly I write about my knitting exploits of the day, though I do sometimes include other activities. It's fun to look back and see when I started a particular project, or how much I got done during a given week. The journal I have has room for eleven years worth of journaling. I like that there isn't a whole page per day; I could never deal with the stress of trying to fill up that amount of blank space. Four lines per day, with room at the back for longer entries as needed, is more than enough for me!
And in baking news, today I tried out these cookies. At first, Avi wasn't too excited about them. But when I left the kitchen for awhile, he went in and made coffee, then helped himself to a few more. He came to me, a few crumbs stuck in a rather endearing fashion on his chin, and confessed, "I just had about 5 or 6 more!" I guess that's a good sign... Right? I ended up with three dozen, so tomorrow I will be giving each of the girls a nice big bag to take to school and share.
