It looks as if 2011 is going to be adventurous as well. In 2011, my husband will graduate and he is currently in the middle of a job search. His job search is broad - we can and are willing to move anywhere. So we are likely to have to pack up, sell our place and venture off. It is thrilling and a little mind boggling as well. Because of a possible move, our garden plans for 2011 are not forthcoming. Perhaps a potted tomato and some lettuce, but nothing in the ground that isn't already there or volunteers (tomatoes I'm looking at you). Hopefully in 2012 I can do a garden in a big proper way and chickens too.
Here is my personal intentions/commitments for myself. What do you plan to do?
- Knit socks. I tried my hand this year and worked one almost to completion. I don't like the yarn and I've made a few errors in switching from one person's pattern to a recipe (thanks Yarn Harlot - so much easier first time out of the gate). I plan to photograph my toeless sock and then frog it. I can use the yarn for a scarf, hat, etc. This will be my year of socks.
- Complete the Loopy Ewe's First Quarter Challenge 2011. I've started cabled socks. If they don't work out I have back up projects.
- Knit a sweater
- Knit something Fair Isle - what is Fair Isle - feast your eyes here
- Do a project with mitered squares - what the heck is a mitered square?
- Clean, sort and GET RID of crap in basement, closets, etc. We we're gonna move it has to be done, but even so I've feeling the need to go minimal.
- Continue to expand our network of healthy, supportive, awesome friends
- Begin writing down every book I read in the coming year. I used to do this, but fell out of the habit.
- Find something I really love to do vocation wise (where we end up will have its effects) - find a job I love, go back to school, develop a serious business or a business plan based one what I already do
- Walk the dogs at least four times a week. More is better, but I have to start somewhere.
- Take a photography class
- Take time at least three times a week to work both dogs. Both old and young dog love it. Old needs it for stimulation and the young needs it for energy output.
- Be more conscious of spending time with Trinket (more on her in another post)
