…fade into black (a starry night)….
Happy New Year!
2009. –Time really does go faster when you are having fun! And yet, some things seem a lifetime ago!
Over all, the year was a good one for me. I hope it was for you, too!
I actually accomplished some of my—well, I wouldn’t call them exactly resolutions—but some of the goals I had set for myself.
I have started to become a bit more serious about the photography; got my website up and running. (www.rteest42.smugmug.com)
I actually started, finished and entered a quilt into a challenge! (didn’t make it, but I entered!!)
I finished writing my fan fiction story, started in 2007; 178,000-ish words later, The Big Chill got its Happily Ever After.
We traveled, and I met new cousins and caught up with old friends…
(You will note the eat less chocolate/exercise more types of ‘resolutions’ are not featured here, nor will they be in the future, lol!!)
This new year, I would like to get back to writing, I would like to FINISH some of the over 35 quilt projects I have started, I would like to concentrate more on genealogy, and cataloging/scanning family photos. As well as take more photos, sell more photos, and organize the house, the studio specifically, and probably do some more cooking, and spend more time with friends and family and and and and….
None are really resolutions, because they only seem to put undue pressure on you, and untold, unnecessary guilt, when you are unable to hold to it…
And that seems a pretty negative way to start a new decade!
Balance. My word of the year…..
I hope that 2010 brings you only the best of everything!!!
(and I am headed to bed…work awaits at 7:30 am….)
