As per usual, I'm starting out 2013 a bit unorganized. I didn't know which direction to go for my first post of the year and then I read Kym's first post, which is just what I would have liked to write if I were an organized person. Instead, I'm checking in to wish you all a very good 2013!
If this picture gives you a chill, it's because it's about 20 degrees. The skies have been a dreary gray since the 29th, our last clear day. Winter has decided to stay for awhile and we pray she'll bring us snow, as well as the cold.
2012 wasn't a year in which I put much into my knitting. I knit mostly shawls, cowls and mitts, with every project taking much longer than has been my usual speed. This is not a complaint nor an apology, it's an acknowledgement of where I am. Looking back, my focus has been food; growing, planning, and cooking (oh, and lets not forget the eating part).
We spent Saturday night going through seed catalogs (we know how to have a good time!) and making lists, even talking about the layout of our 2013 garden. Every year we have the blank pallet of fresh dirt to start a new year of deliciousness. (Kym, we were also drinking rye.)
Reading, catching the bug of reading once again, as taken over much of my free time. I work full time,which means my leisure time is limited, and knitting has been a low priority when compared to reading, eating well, and getting my butt out for some exercise. If there is anything to say about new resolutions, it is to do MORE of the same, but maybe a bit more effectively and efficiently.
Happy New Year, friends!!!
