Happy New Year! I have lots to update you on but not the time to write a decent post right now. But, I do want to share these few things:
- It's Susan's birthday! Even though I've never met this woman, I have a few prized possessions placed around my little cabin* that remind me of her, and - for whatever reason - she's in my thoughts almost daily. (*Okay, truth time: they WILL be placed around the cabin once I find them in the unpacked boxes!) She's an inspiration to me: of homesteading, of single woman life, of farming, of living.
- I normally overdo my New Year's resolutions - picking too many or unrealistic ones. This year, I'm choosing two: to blog more (which shouldn't be too hard given my number of posts in 2012) and to do the following idea (a blogger I read - but whose post I've forgotten! - suggested this as did a friend on FB).
"Starting January 1st, write good things that happen to you on little pieces of paper. Things like surprise gifts, accomplished goals, the beauty of nature, fun/funny moments, memories worth saving, daily blessings. Drop them into a jar. Then, on December 31st, open the jar and read all the amazing things that happened to you in the past year!"So, that's what I'm gonna focus on (both of which can be as inclusive - of the entire year - as you choose). How about you? What are YOU looking forward to in 2013?
