How is it possible for time to pass so quickly?
Every year I try to set some goals. Not resolutions, but things I'd like to accomplish throughout the year. There is a difference, right? I think of resolutions as long-term, indefinite goals like eat better, exercise more, etc. These are more definite tasks with a tangible outcomes. Anyway, I like lists and I especially like to check things off my lists.
So here is my list for 2010:
- Print digital pictures, label them, and put them in photo albums. Sort and back-up digital files. I've had my digital camera since 2006, or was it 2005? and I rarely print any of the photos. Not good! This must be rectified.
- Knit a pair of socks. Emphasis on pair. One sock won't count, because I know if I stop at one, I'll never move on to the second. I think it's called "second sock syndrome". I have a lot of wool, particularly fingering weight wool that would be perfect for socks. I see this as the best possible way of depleting my stash. *This was on my 2009 list, but didn't get done.
- Buy a GPS for geocaching. This is another goal for 2009 that didn't get done. I'm thinking about getting The Magellan Triton 200. But if any of you have any other suggestions, feel free to let me know.
- Make a fabric & ribbon memo board, like this one.
- Read Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. I've had this book on my shelf for a long time, but am somewhat intimidated by the commitment it will take to read it. Time to get over that!
- Get involved in my church. Up until this point I've been adherent and little more. I'd like this to change, but probably not until September after the big event I'm planning in June.
- Frame my gerbera print.
- Buy a headboard for my bed. I've been looking for one for a little while, but keep putting it off because I can't make up my mind what I want. Ultimately though, I'd like to sit up in bed and read, without having my bed rolling away from the wall when I lean up against it. Hmm...maybe there are brakes on the wheels. I should check that first.
- Attempt pie crust again. I did this a couple of years ago and it didn't work, but haven't really tried since. Well, that's no good. I can't just give up. I'm up for the challenge again!
- Volunteer for the YMCA's Immigrant Host program. This is where you are partnered with a new immigrant and help them get orientated to Canadian culture and the city and also just be a friend. Plain and simple. I had planned to do this back in 2008, but then I began my commitment to my Little and felt I wanted to concentrate on that before committing to something else.
