A little behind schedule

Ok so it's the new year and I am (as usual) a little late in getting my New Year's resolutions written down. I don't know why but I never even start thinking about them until New Year's day and then I spend a lot of time thinking about them and trying to make sure that I am not going to be over-doing it by making these impossible goals for myself.

I think I've finally gotten it down to something that is doable (at least for a while):

1. Make at least 2 posts a week to my blog
2. Continue to eat smaller meals more often during the day. (this makes the doc happy)
3. Walk for at least 15 minutes a day (also makes doc happy)
4. Complete 1 FO per month
5. Make at least 1 sweater or t-shirt this year

Naturally those aren't all of the goals that I have but they are the only ones that I'm willing to write down and try to stick with. The rest of them are sort of brownie point type goals that I can be pleasantly surprised with if I reach them this year.

On the home front:

We finally uncovered the island in the kitchen long enough for me to take this photo of the pot rack that my dad hung while they were still here. Pay no attention to the random vases and candlesticks on top of the cabinets, they are just there until something better comes along.

A dear friend (and fellow blogger) is a scrapper and loves flowers. I've been telling her about these fans in the guest bedrooms of our new home. This picture is for her...
The previous owners had 2 adorable little girls and these fans went perfectly with the decor of their rooms. I, however, will be taking these fans down and replacing them. Hopefully these will sell on Craigslist.

On the knitting front:

I have officially (and finally) completed the first FO of 2008. No need to post a pic, they are another pair of Fetching mitts, this time in a lovely pale pink. I've now made 3 pair of these, one right after another. This last pair seemed to take forever but there hasn't been much time to work on them with the move and ensuing unpacking fun that we've been having over here.
