A New Year....A New Blog Outlook

As yet another year has gone by, I have been what one might call the worst blogger in the entire world.  Though, I'm sure I'm better than at least one or two people, but that's it.

The last year was a big and busy year for me.  I got engaged in January and married at the end of September.  Then came the holiday season and before I knew it, the year was over. 

So here is hoping that 2011 will give me a bit more time to work on some of my hobbies and just free time. 

This winter, I'm already getting into Oscar season and working my way through a list of movies nominated for Golden Globes and will supplement with the Oscar nominations when they come out at the end of the month.  I'm going to be prepared for this year's pool.  No more tying for me!  So far my best picture reviews are this:
  • Black Swan -- Utterly terrifying....Natalie Portman was really good though.  As was Mila Kunis.
  • The Fighter -- Quite good....Christian Bale plays a very convincing crack addict. 
  • Inception -- One of the two movies I saw in the theater in 2010....and worth it.
  • The Social Network and The King's Speech are in the plans for this week.
R got a job at The Canyons this year which ever so generously provided me with a season pass as well so I'm determined to get some more snowboarding and skiing in this year.  First day out is planned for a bit later today.  Hopefully my legs don't crumble beneath me.

I have high hopes of actually working on my Etsy store, qDot, this year.  I got a sewing machine for Christmas which will hopefully make sewing much more convenient when I don't have to plan an entire day of sewing at my parents.  I also plan on adding some stationery to my store and to continue quilting and knitting.

As always reading is high on my list of things to do.  I have a pretty big list of books that I want to finish reading this year.  I have again resolved in the new year not to purchase any new books.  I will finish a chunk of the unread books on my bookshelves....and use the library.  Our first book for book club is "As I Lay Dying" by William Faulkner and I just put it on hold at the library.  So far a good start.  In the meantime, I just need to finish "The Girl Who Played with Fire" so I can move on with my life.

From what I've heard recently, the big safari is coming in May.  That will definitely be an experience and I can't wait!!!

This year I have intentions to continue to work on my cooking skills and learn how to use new ingredients.  I would like to join a CSA this summer or use the Farmer's Market more this year.  Also hopefully work on utilizing more organic and local foods all around. 

Otherwise, there are intentions for the year....continue with yoga and swimming, add a little running (not too much but just enough for the off chance that someone chases me), just a general effort to maintain general health.  Because after all, what would a new year's resolution/intention list be without something to that effect?

And for now, that's the end.....I also intend to blog more about things.  Hopefully things of interest.  Recipes, food, books, my projects....We will see what the year brings us.... Until then....

  1. You aren't doing very well with the blogging resolutions thus far...I thought that would be a good resolution for me too though...we'll see how long that lasts for me!
