Hey there, hi there, ho there!
Here’s hoping that everyone had happy and safe holidays. Mine was just the way I like, low-key and spent with my family.
Work is going well. It’s a different kind of accounting than I’m used to, but each day brings new challenges. And I’m grateful every day that I’m back in the workforce. While I did enjoy my time at home, it’s nice to talk to adults that actually can talk back to me. :-)
I started out last year by say:
2013, for me, felt like a year of instability. And for someone who doesn’t deal with change very well…you can imagine what this was like for me. So, I guess I’m going to find a way in 2014 to get my sea legs back again. I plan on getting back into the workforce as soon as I am able to find a job. We’re back to going to church regularly. And, I’m also going to work on taking each day as it comes. This is all that I really can do.
As far as crafting goes…
I think I’m going to do the same thing as I said above, take each project as it comes. I had big plans last year to knit something from each category of my Ravelry queue and, though I did complete some of them, it crashed and burned because time and new knitting jobs came up.”
I did get my “sea legs” back and feel like a productive member of society again; we continued to go to church regularly which helped to center me when things around me seemed bat sh!t crazy and hopeless; and I took each day as it came.
This year, I will continue to live each day as it comes and to stop and smell the roses more often.
As far as my two favorite pastimes, crafting and reading, these are my goals:
Unfortunately, my job prevents me from getting as much crafting done as in the past few years. So my goal is to work on projects that interest and/or teach me in some way. Unlike my last job, the fact that I am a knitter fascinates the people at work and one thing that I get asked about a lot is arm knitting. I’ve watched a few videos and it’s something that looks like so. much. fun!
My goal, on Goodreads, for 2015 is to read 50 books. I plan on achieving this goal by participating in Popsugar’s 2015 Ultimate Reading Challenge. I’m going to try my hardest to find books that follow the criteria in the challenge. I’m starting off 2015 by trying to check off “A Trilogy” from my list. My co-worker loaned me the Divergent Trilogy and I started the first book, Divergent, just before the holidays began.
I do however, have a favor to ask. One of the criteria is “A book that a friend recommended”, so I’m asking you, my readers, for your suggestions.
Can you help a gal out? Who knows, your suggestion could fit another one of the challenge criteria.
