The tree is gone. It's as if Christmas never happened. I often feel a bit of a let down after Christmas, but this year is different. Maybe it's because it seemed to have come earlier this year. Maybe it was because we had snow. Whatever it was I'm looking forward to the new year. January is like a fresh blanket of snow. No footprints. There's so much possibility. You just want to run out and make your mark. I can see why New Year's resolutions are so appealing.
My resolutions are probably like a lot of people's: get in shape, eat better. I'm also striving to finish the projects I start and try not to take on more than I can handle. Rather difficult for me, I'm afraid. And of course, read more.
Tomorrow is my blog's first anniversary. I can't believe I've been doing this for a year. I've learned so much and met so many people through blogging. It's been a great experience. I can't wait to see what the New Year brings. It's inspired me to change the look of my blog. I still have some kinks to work out though. I hope all the readers who have been kind enough to drop in and comment keep coming. Reading your comments is the best part of blogging.
