That time again (hmmmm, de ja vu all over again?) where I list those things I might like to vaguely consider doing, but then again, no pressure if I do not, in 2010.
- 2010 will be the big year of hard core savererering. No more puzzling at what happened to the YTD earned when we look at our pay slips – because it will mostly all be going into the bank.
- Compleat Don’s sweater before the end of January. Keep up with the knitting (loving it – thanks again for the push, my beloved Harriet). Aim toward a garment a month (fortunately, hats can be considered garments).
- Accept that I am not going to learn Italian any time soon, but that I will definitely return to Roma in the not to distant future (despite not chucking any euro-cents in the Trevi Fountain)
- Keep on silkscreening and learn the photo-emulsion method
- Make that quilt I’ve been planning (and have had the fabric for) for the past 7 years
- Sew at least one article of clothing – preferably that skirt
- Extend adjectival vocab (yes, I know) carried forward – for the last several years
- Get the hell out of Marie Celeste at a reasonable time each day
- Stop swearing. I know, y’all have fallen down at that one. I do think it unbecoming of a woman of my advanced age.
- Keep up the most exellent work at the gym
- Continue with my reading project – so far has been a hoot! After the Live & Let Die memoir, I love Roger Moore even more (ha!) than I would have thought possible. And cannot quite believe I’ve not read Ngaio Marsh for a whole year, but is true – my goodness that year did go fast .
- A Big Project – details of which will be revealed at a later time.
On reflection a lot of these seem to involve the feminine arts, I admit that I do have a bit of a yearning to embrace my crafty roots (or embrace my old ladyness).
