New Year & New Goals
Happy New Year to all. So here I sit at work. I would rather be at home stitching. I stitched and stitched yesterday and went to take a pic of my progress and couldn't find my camera. I am so upset. I will look more when I get home this evening.
Hobby Lobby has Simplicity patterns on sale for 99¢. There is a limit of 10, I have just browsed Simplicity's web site and have my 10 that I want. I also purchased the Winter catalog from Simplicity. I love looking at those things. Can't wait to get it. I am going to have my Mom take my measurements so I have an idea which size I now wear instead of guessing. I did notice as I was perusing the fashions how much they remind me of the 60's. Last year it was the 70's, next year will probably be the 80's. My thing is feminine styles, I love lace and ruffles, not boxy, shapeless styles.
Okay, so what's with the belly dancer picture above, I hear you asking. The local parks and recs is offering belly dancing lessons and I think I want to take them. I would love to be able to move my hips like a belly dancer, so seductive and intriguing! What do you think of that? Before you know it I will be wearing a jewel in my navel and sporting a sequined bra and a skirt made up of not quite see thru scarves! Oh my the men will be trailing after me with their jaws hanging open, LOL!!!
New Years Resolutions, well I do want to continue on my healthy path, drinking at least one glass of water a day and walking at least once a week. I think I want to get a stationary bike to wheel myself around in front of the television thru the winter cold and spring rain. Of course organizing and cleaning my home. I want to continue to read at least 1 book a month. No gossiping and I am starting that here at work today, minding my business, keeping my mouth shut. I want to work at paying off my 401K loans this year. I want to remain calm and let everything up to God to take care of. I want to enjoy my life and be more positive. I want to be really creative, watch less television, pay my bills on time and keep my business mine. Big goals, but I know I can do it.
I am bummed that I couldn't take a pic of my progress on my needlework project, I know that camera is somewhere here in the cold tundra of our Lilac Thicket. Please have a good 2011 and dream big!
