Good morning from 2012!
Just a quick recap before I head back to organize our flat (messy from holiday festivities). I can’t believe it’s 2012 already. I know, I know – everyone you’ve ever met has said that or something similar to you in the last few hours. But still, I repeat – I can’t believe it’s 2012 already. Seth and I are almost halfway through our three years in Edinburgh, according to the Mayan calendar the world is about to end, and since it’s January, it is no longer okay for me to listen to only my favorite three Christmas albums (at least, not in front of other people).
2011 was a great year – we went to Paris, enjoyed a summer in Edinburgh (not hot persay, but sun from 4am to 12pm, yes please!), hosted many visitors and visited our homes in the states.
I did complete 20 knitting projects during the year – finishing with some baby hats for my soon to be born nephew and a friend’s new baby son. I didn’t manage to blog twice a week, but don’t actually feel guilty about it. My book goal fell one book short, but I am thinking that somewhere during the year, I read a book and neglected to blog it, so I am considering that goal a success despite my lack of actual ‘Book 52 of 52’ post.
For 2012, I plan to:
1. Finish 20 knitting projects.
2. Fit all of my crafting supplies into only two cubbies by December (currently occupying five cubbies and two small bins).
3. Sew a hexagon quilt.
4. Workout 3x/week (Zumba, Pilates/Yoga and running)
5. Get outside of Edinburgh and hike/walk once a month.
6. Read a history of Scotland (have one on my shelf just now – by a Scot named Magnus Magnusson – what a name!)
I wrote a few more down somewhere, but I will start there for now. Besides my own goals, 2012 will hold a trip to London with Seth, potential trips to Ireland and back to Paris, another visit home to the states, another summer spent by the swan pond near our flat and plenty of good times with friends (and hopefully a good new job in there somewhere as well).
Here’s to your 2011s and 2012s whatever you completed and have planned!
