New Year’s Resolutions

A new year has promise written all over it. While it’s not a blank slate, the new year offers the chance for change. So what do I want to change about what I do and who I am?

1. Be healthier and stronger, which means more exercise, including strength training (not my favorite) and more consistently eating healthy food.

2. Write more outside of my job, which means fewer distractions like movies from Netflix in the evenings and on weekends.

3. Design a garden up at the cabin for the hill, which means studying garden design and native plant books in the winter months.

If I can stick to these three resolutions, that’s enough until I come up with more for 2013.
