Monthly Resolutions - December 2018

I haven't done a Monthly Resolutions post for several months, but since I'm trying to get back into the habit of blogging on a regular basis, coming up with some resolutions or goals for the month of December seems like a good idea. The whole idea of doing monthly resolutions was originally conceived by Kim, and while I'm not sure if she's still doing them, I'm all for giving credit where it's due. Since I know this will be a busy month, I'm going to try to keep my goals fairly easy and attainable so I don't stress myself out too much. 

So, for the month of December I resolve to:

  1. Participate in Holidailies, and post a blog entry everyday.
  2. Participate in December Reflections and post a photo everyday.
  3. Create and mail out Christmas cards by 12/16/18.
  4. Finish colouring my 2019 calendar pages.
  5. Finish reading Ka: Dar Oakley in the Ruin of Ymr by John Crowley
  6. Come up with Goals/Resolutions for 2019.

OK, I think that's enough to deal with this month! I hope you all have a great December, and accomplish all you want to! Cheers!

Holidailies 2018 Day 1

Hello, and welcome back to my blog! I know it's been a hundred years since I've posted an actual blog entry here, but sorry, not sorry, because I've been busy living life! OK who am I kidding, I’ve actually just been working pretty much all the time with a little bit of living thrown in, and generally just so very exhausted from all the working and living and stuff, that I haven’t had the energy to do much of anything, and ... Phew!

Anyway, I do want to get back into blogging and what better time to jump back in than with Holidailies!! Strangely enough, I'm a little nervous about doing Holidailies because I'm SO out of practice writing every day, but I'm also excited to start writing again. My goal is to write a blog post every day for the month of December, and hopefully I’ll be able to continue writing into the New Year!

This month I'm also participating in December Reflections, a daily photo project, so expect to see a lot of pictures here as well. By far the biggest thing to happen to me in 2018 was my trip to London, England, and Paris, France in August with my friends Pam and Darlene. We had a blast, and I'm excited to share it with you all! And, of course, all things Christmas - from my modest decorations, Christmas card designs, activities, and the infamous Christmas Letter, I'll be dropping it all right here!

So Happy Holidailies, everyone, and wish me luck!  Cheers!
