Now, I'm back to stitching and reading and thoughts of New Year's plans:
*Making new friends is my first goal.
*Finishing stitching projects for Jessica is my second.
*Keeping old friends and enriching those friendships
*Getting our Neighborhood RR rolling again and finished
*Finishing our HAED RR this year
*Getting involved in a new RR somehow, somewhere???
*Working on my Chatelaine Designs
*Working on my favorite WIPs and SALs: Cirque; Bride's Treasures , Colonial Coverlet; HHRH; Canadian/Sanibel Island Journey; Samplers; Marie Antoinette, etc....
*Planning to read "War and Peace," and many new books this year!
Finding New Personal Goals in 2008:
*Doing more geneological research - I found another interesting link to our Plymouth, MA, family. A "Riggs House" in Glouchester, MA, built in the 1600s....
*Thinking about taking French lessons...I've never learned to speak french
*New exercise in the sunshine program 3 times per week....walking and swimming, at least! UGH....I need help with this one!
*Recycle!! Unravelling the mass of boxes of STUFF accumulated over the years...recycling them to Goodwill, etc.. I need to simplify my home and life this year. I need to learn to let go of the unnecessary so I can let in the light!
I want, also, to thank each and every one of you for your heartfelt comments this season about Christmas memories, holiday losses, and struggles both by your blog comments and to me through personal email. Maybe in some small way, it was a comfort to know that we all cared and shared the good and the heartbreaks through the support of those who know.... You are so special! Here's to good friends throughout the year!!
Love and hugs,
