I can't believe that 2012 is over already. Honestly, it didn't feel like Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas until the day was upon me. Perhaps it has a lot to do with the unseasonable weather we've had this fall. I don't know....but, the months speed by. My Gram used to say that the older you get, the faster time moves on, and she was so right.
As we bid 2012 a fond farewell, I have to say it has been a good year for me. I've had several new and exciting adventures, and I look forward to 2013, and all it has to bring.
As each new year begins, I set goals for myself....things I want to accomplish or new challenges. For 2013, I want to learn a lot more about social media tools and PhotoShop (which was on my list last year. I learned a bit, but not as much as I'd like!). I also want to learn to make a great pie crust, and bake delicious pies. I love pie! And soup...I love soup, but really don't have many good soup recipes. Yes...soup and pie.
The other goal is more personal. I'm making it a point to be more gracious. I try to be kind and helpful, and now want to focus on being more gracious. Kindness and graciousness go hand in hand, I think. The world can always use more grace and kindness, don't you think?
Would you call all of those things resolutions? Hhmmm.....I like calling them goals more than resolutions. Resolving to do something just doesn't have the same positive spin. I digress......
After we ring in the New Year, put the Christmas decorations away, and eat the last Christmas cookies, we can begin to take some time for ourselves.....to do something we enjoy as we settle into the winter months. My next Pocket Patchwork Sew~Along will begin on Friday! I'm so looking forward to it! (Read my previous post to find out more about the Sew~Along and how to participate.)
I'd like to close the year with a Give-away!
Post your comment by midnight Wednesday for a chance to win a pair of these heirloom scissors!
Wishing each of you a very Happy & Healthy
And...thanks so much for taking the time to visit me here!
I truly appreciate it more than words can say.
