What a lovely way to welcome a new year. 87mm of rain in our rain gauge overnight. I think most of it fell in about an hour yesterday afternoon. Very welcome was the rain too, the past few days have been awfully hot and humid. I'm used to the dry heat so the humidity is a little hard to handle.
Towards the end of 2016 I was contemplating taking a month or so away from being online but I have decided that I just don't want to. I have a fairly good balance between being online and off and the friendships that I have here are real and valuable and I don't particularly want to be away from those friendships for a month.
It's that time of year when I update my notebooks. address books and make plans and goals for the year ahead. No resolutions for me, just goals and aims. Except of course my usual resolution to give up chocolate. So far so good 😜. In the past I have managed to last until Easter.
In 2017 I aim to be more kind to myself and others, write more, be more creative and do more of what I love.
On the home and gardening front. I'm aiming to get a few things crossed off my list like install a new kitchen. A new kitchen has been on my wishlist for more years than I care to remember.
Keep up to date with my gardening and grow good things to eat.
Creativity was sorely lacking in my life last year. I have a pretty dishcloth on my knitting pins and some mail art and journalling on the go too. Just easing my way back in to making and creating.
