Books-I've already finished one book this year, Fireworks Over Toccoa. And I ditched one book, Dead Before Dark. I know many of you love the Sookie Stackhouse books but I was 15 pages in when I decided that what was bothering me about the book wasn't something that was going to resolve itself later on. This year I am not wasting my time on books that are not up my alley.
Challenges-I will actually be finishing a book for the Really Old Classics. I have started and abandoned 3 so far but I am liking The Song of Roland. With my review of Alias Grace I have added another 10 points to the Four Month Challenge and it also counts for Our Mutual Read and the 2010. What an encouraging start to the year!
Wii-Finally! My mom got a Wii last year "for the grandkids and for exercise" and I loved it as much as my kiddos did. Now I have my own Wii Fit Plus and a Pilates game for it. Plus my daughter got Wii Dance which is hugely fun. I love to work my lower body with Fit Plus, my upper body with Sports, and get aerobic exercise with Dance. I just need to get past the soreness of starting a new workout routine.
Resolutions-Everyone's got them. Most of you have shared them. I'm trying to keep mine simple and few.
*I want to get more of my unfinished sewing projects done this year. I'm running out of storage space for all of it. I'm still investigating Etsy. There are some seriously cool things being made and sold on there.
*I'd like to get back to a mostly healthy lifestyle now that the holiday treats are just about gone. Dinner tonight will be salmon, brown rice and broccoli.
*I hope to get back to the poetry reading I started a couple of years ago.
*I'd like to do some WWI research since that's the setting for my nanowrimo novel from last Nov.
Wishing all my readers a peaceful and joyous 2010. May all your resolutions come to fruition.
