And here we are on the very edge of a new year
- filled with a sense of something -
anticipation? hope? excitement? anxiety? possibility?
52 new weeks to experience
and a time for setting goals
for re-aligning ourselves
for setting our eyes and our ships towards the lands we wish to discover
I love the beginning of a new year, the sense of a fresh start, the time to think about what matters
This year I have goals and aims for sure, some concrete and others less so, but for me there is also a sense of making way - making space - and making room in my life for the unexpected things that He might have for me and for us..... in the face of the unknown I choose to trust.
I've written some 'loose' creative goals for myself which I hope to achieve but am not dominated by (never fear mama!!) - they are on my 2013 page at the top if you want to have a look.
Mainly though this is probably what you can expect here this year:
Mama Mondays - Becoming the Mama I Want to Be - this will be more of the same of last year but also a linky for people to join in on. Want to know more? Have a look here.
Tasty Tuesdays - I'd like to extend my baking repertoire (I do love baking and I do do rather a lot of it) so I am aiming to try a new recipe from one of these beautiful books every week of the year
Wardrobe Wednesdays -More of the same whatever I'd like to wear, whatever you'd like to wear and a whole lot of loving each other for it :o)
Creative Thursdays - is the day I'll share the creating I'm doing - most weeks but maybe not making something every week like I have for the last 2 years. When I do I'll be joining in here.
Grateful Fridays - taking time to be grateful for the goodness in my life. When I do I'll be joining in here.
So that might sound like a lot of posting but I'm happy to take it easy on the bigger weeks and busy seasons and let things slide. And every now and again I'll just post about whatever ramblings come into my mind. And over the summer I might not post as frequently. Okay?
Do you have goals for 2013?
and seeing as it's Tuesday!! here is my first recipe - fresh from the Frankie recipe book (bought for $2 in Melbourne) Yo-Yos or Melting Moments. First time I've ever made them.
Bounce likes the 'Yo-Go's' but he's keen to check I'll still make his favourite chocolate chippies now and again.
Later this week I'll be posting a bit about my 'words' for this year.
