I worked on my latch hook project, too. Oh boy, do I sound pathetic, or what? Marcella got a latch hook project for Christmas and asked me to help her with it. Because I'm a type A personality, if I started working on that, I wouldn't stop until it was done. So I went and got my own.
Traditions for New Year's in my family
Do you know why you're not supposed to eat chicken on New Year's Day? Chickens scratch back when they eat. Pigs snout forward. So for good luck in the New Year, we eat pork and saurkraut because it symbolizes looking into the future. We also gather up the shiniest and newest pennies we can find and place one penny under each plate, so we'll never be poor in the New Year. This year, I'm opting for quarters. Perhaps pennies is too meager of a goal. Ha ha!
New Year's Resolution anyone?
I've never really been a big New Year's Resolution kinda person but it also doesn't seem the same if I don't. This year, my goals are simple:
- Work on my Faith Journey
- Be a happier person
I believe that if I work on just those two goals, everything else will fall into place. This is my third year for having "being a happier person" as a resolution. It's the easiest one to accomplish and frankly, it's much more fun. I also would like to work on my blog this year. My goal is to enhance my blog and write more about who I am so that my readers may connect with me more. I also hope to read others' blogs, too. I haven't been the most faithful in that area.
Many blessings to all of you in the New Year! Happy New Year!
