First Steps [Jan. 1st, 2007|05:12 pm]

Begin as you mean to go on. The phrase that’s been running through my mind all day today. There’s a tradition that claims that how you spend the first day of the New Year is how you will spend the rest of the year. It’s garbage, of course; I only ever spend one day of each year obsessively watching parades. No Mummers this year (Waaahh! They got rained out.) I try not to get all wrapped around the axel with New Year’s resolutions, but it’s hard not to think about them, and I do have a few things that I want to do this year. One of which is to blog more. So, in the spirit of doing what I’d like to be doing all year (because despite the rational side there’s a part of me that says but.. but maybe there’s something to that) here’s a post to celebrate the start of a new year.

Today I cleaned a little, worked on my quilting a little, watched parades a little, hugged my husband more than a little, and posted a little. It’s a good start, I think. This week I’d like to exercise a little, eat a little less (junk) clean a little more. I really want to finish my sister’s quilt this year (maybe even THIS winter.) I want to work on quilty creative stuff every day. I want to practice the Flylady thing and get it working better for me. I want a bunch of other stuff. We’ll see how it goes. Begin as you mean to go on. My sewing storage room is a shambles. I think I’ll go spend fifteen minutes making order out of chaos up there, and then maybe take the big step and set up the quilt for quilting this evening. First steps are always a bear. Best of luck to all of you in your first steps in this new year. May it be a better year for us, every one.

Wanted to thank you for your call - we managed to get hit with everything we've been ducking all last week, and I slept all day. But I did want to wish you guys the happiest of new years.

Thank you! I hope you're feeling better. J and I have been trading colds just about all of December, it feels like.
