I think that we are all thankful to be out from under the Curse of 2016. Well, at least as we would believe that 2016 was cursed with all of the celebrity deaths right up until the last day of the year. You did know that William Christopher, who played Fr. Mulcahy on MASH, passed on the last day of the year, right?
It is time once again for new beginnings. Once again I find that my goals are the same from last year. I would like to say that this year feels different and that I will succeed on some level with some of them. I hope to continue to say that next week and next month as well. That this year feels different. That success is blowing in the wind. I hope it is blowing in the wind for you as well.
I have probably mentioned before that New Year’s Day is a big deal in our home. However, I think it has become a bigger deal to me than to my husband who started this whole thing. Each New Year’s is a carefully planned series of activities so that we fit in everything. Why you ask? Because his grandmother had a superstition that whatever you do on the first day of the year is what you will be doing all year and of course there are lots of things that we want to do. We made soup, cleaned a little, went for a walk, cleaned a little more, did a little laundry, played some games, and of course I had to make my way back here. I still have plans to spend some time in my craft room and work on a UFO.
My main goal in crafting this year is to complete some UFO’s. I came late to it last year and I’m hoping that by starting out this way, I can perhaps make some more serious headway. By clearing out some UFO’s I could get rid of some storage in my craft room making it less cluttered and give me more room to breathe. Of course that also means that there is more room to work on all those projects that have been calling me that I have only dreamed of starting… First things first though, clear out the old to make way for the new.
I hope your New Year’s is a safe and happy one and that you make a good start on all the goals you have envisioned!
