A Year of Possiblities

I love this week, which seems fresh and new, like anything is possible in the coming year. I love reading and hearing about everyone's resolutions and projects. Even though I am cynical royalty and know that 90% of these projects will be abandoned (just ask me about my Project 365 that lasted two months), for this week and this month we will indulge ourselves in optimism.
  • Knit from stash: I was the happy recipient of much gift yarn this year, and dropped a couple Benjamins on yarn for myself (whoops). This fall I reorganized my yarn by weight into 3 plastic bins, which lasted about 4 seconds before they started to overflow. My goal is to fit all of the stash back into those bins.
  • Get the house in order: We've entertained the idea of moving to a different house this year, which means that all of those projects that were scheduled to happen someday need to happen now. I have a 2-page list of all of these projects, ranging from cleaning out drawers to minorly remodeling bathrooms, that I will spare you from.
  • Complete photobook pages monthly: Each year I put together a book of pictures from the year, so they can live somewhere physical outside of my computer. Well, this (last) year I took over 1,000 pictures. Wading through them has been a monumental task. This year, I'm going to upload the pictures from each month and complete a few pages so I don't have to do it all at once.
Despite having a terrible name, dutch babies are delicious. Alton Brown's recipe is a winner.

  1. A week of optimism! All right! We can commiserate on minor bathroom remodels any time you want, because I'm also staring down a long list of fixes before we can move (preferably late 2015).


I would love you hear from you, real people!
