I say that like I’m slogging through my days, don’t I? I have no true grind right now, no job to return to, but I will be picking up my routine again, now that Eric returned to work, and the girls go back to school on Monday, once they return home from PA. And I definitely have some goals I want to achieve this year. Not resolutions, really, but goals.
I do some housework each day, dishes, making of beds, laundry, the dogs, that are normally finished by about 9 a.m. one goal I have set is actually hauling my lazy self to the gym 4 days a week. I mean, really, I pay for it, I should go, and honestly, I love to go! I have been busy with the kids and Eric over the last few weeks, so didn’t take the time to go. Now that everything is back to normal, I’ve got time again. That will begin this morning, after I get the bed made, i can’t leave the house before doing that, lol.
Another goal I have set is with my knitting, and its vague, but a many pronged attack! I plan to be more mindful when choosing projects, instead of just randomly choosing things to knit for something to do. I challenged myself, on ravelry to complete 35 projects this year.
This brings me to my next goal! Ravelry! I love it, always have, but have definitely drifted away from using it to log my projects. Haven’t done that at all in two years. Silly, right? So yesterday I entered the 2 versions of Puntilla I’m working on. Then hit that challenge tab, set my goal and then I went through my queue. I eliminated things I’ve made, things I saved there to take a better look at and added the things I really want to make, the things i have yarn for, or made me gasp out loud.
Here is the list view of my current queue. Things will be added, because its early days, but that’s a good solid start. Once both Puntilla sweaters are off the needles (which needs to happen by 1/13) I am participating in a KAL at my LYS. We are doing Humulus, and I got my yarn the other day.
I love that green! I have 3 more skeins to liberate from the closet at my LYS, soon. I also am really hoping to knit 12 pairs of socks this year.
That’s my next pair of socks. I think I’ll do Sprig, a pattern I’ve had queued for quite a while. Its lacy, so I think the dark blue will look good. And that weirdly shaped cowl? I knit that awhile ago for when its chilly and we go out on the bike, and it works great!! That tight neck kept me toasty!
That leads me to my final goal for the year, well, final 2. I want my concealed carry permit and I want my motorcycle license. I’ve been wanting my own bike for awhile now, in a vague kinda way, but I found the bike I want. And I want it bad! A soft tail slim bobber. Look them up….gorgeous and bad ass!!
Today will take me to the gym, starting to put Christmas away and off to knit with some new friends.
A pic I snapped while out on the bike yesterday. I dont think ENC will ever get old!
