2011 ...

... is a year of plans.

There will be more
  • knitting and a mastering (or should that be mistressing) of cables
  • sewing (of our own clothes)
  • learning new things (crochet for starters)
  • planting veggies in the garden and eating them (that means you too, Frankie Boy)
  • trips (to the Isle of Mull, the Cotswolds, Finland, the beach (lots) and Dorset are being planned)
  • exercise & fresh air
  • embracing of the moment
  • music in our lives, both live and just around us at home
  • art
  • locally sourced food on our plates
  • blogging and photos
  • comments on blogs and yet no guilt if I don't find the time
  • sleep ( a girl can dream ...)

There will be less

  • screen time
  • guilt
  • worry about what others think
  • fear of the future
  • "responsibly sourced Madagascan prawns" on our plates (oh, yes, I fell for this one a month ago and hubby is still laughing at me!)
  • time spent with people that don't sustain me or "get it" with regard to the D

Are you planning more or less of anything this year?

Happy 2011 and I look forward to sharing this year with you.

My husband posted this the other day (it's a friend of his) and I wanted to share it with you today, at the beginning of a new year.

It's raw beauty brings me to tears and it feels such a privilege to hear it each and every time.


  1. OK...good list. Aren't you knitting something for the "female genitalia" in feb? Sorry...I am still fascinated by the whole bra escapade too Jules! You have the widest variety on this blog for sure :)

    I am planning on more exercise, more healthy veggies and fruit options. Less screen time...only blogging...less FB. More board games and hiking with the kids. I would like to get back to making almost all of our foods. I used to be great at this.

    Happy New Year Jules!

  2. Happy New Year dear friend!!! You are amazing and I am looking forward to what 2011 will bring. Hoping that it is filled with many blessings :)

  3. Happy New Year Jules! I too am planning on embracing the moment more this year, finding more joy, clenching my teeth less (!) and learning how to really use my damn camera!

  4. Happy New Year! I have no doubt you'll put a big dent in your "do more" list! I want to move more, eat less. :)

  5. Great lists - wishing you a happy new year!
