Oh....the Resolutions



"Making resolutions is a cleansing ritual of self assessment and repentance that demands personal honesty and ultimately, reinforces humility.  Breaking them is part of the cycle."  

Eric Zorn  


Well, maybe I have just a few simple ones like..... take more photographs, grow a better garden, learn to can a few more vegetables, read more books, read more books, and read more books.  

I might have a few goals, but let's not get crazy.  I shall not be: 

giving up coffee
or
getting up early on Saturday mornings 

Some things are just too precious to do away with.

  8. I didn't do resolutions, tho I won't change anything other than continue to try living a good life.

  9. Just the thought of giving up sets us up for failure, I believe. That said, I'm giving up the rest of the sweets I still eat this year. Strictly for medical reasons though. Keeping my diabetes under control becomes more and more serious an issue as the years go by. Happy New Year to you and your family, Michelle.

  11. Oh you made me laugh this morning. Give up coffee and get up early not high on my list either lately. No resolutions for me I am a failure when I have to think about what I NEED to give up or do. My resolution is to just hopefully fall into it not force myself:) B

  12. I like making resolutions throughout the year, one resolution at time. That way I can only fail at one before trying another. :))

  20. Happy New Year to you and your family. Don't make if you will break it only makes you feel down. I think folks take on to many things these days, anyway why over load yourselves Just a good walk, food a hug and a lay down in front of a warm fire.
    Thats what makes us dogs happy.

    Have a Good week

  24. Give up coffee... pbftt! That'd be crazy talk!

    I want to actually get my garden planted this year! I think I was avoiding the neighbors on that side of the house last year... and too much other stuff going on...

  30. I don't make resolutions anymore but I do review the prior year and think about this next one. I love your ideas and yes some things are here to stay!

  31. Happy New Year!

    Funny, getting up early on Saturdays is one of my resolutions. Time at home is so precious when I'm out at work all week.
