Hello. Happy 2012 to you! I hope your year is going well. So far, so good here. I always love the beginning of a new year. It's a season of possibilities...not knowing what will unfold in the next twelve months and feeling like it's a fresh start.
I didn't chose any special words to reflect on or guide me throughout the year, nor am I making any resolutions...the list would be far too long. I just want to focus on being happy and having God take control of my life instead of trying to map out the future myself.
It's been so wonderful here weather-wise, that I've kind of tricked myself into thinking that Spring is right around the corner. I'm sure mother nature has other plans though. I thought I'd bring a little of that Springtime feeling into the house by planting some paperwhite, grape hyacinth and crocus bulbs. I've forced paperwhites before, but have never tried the others so hopefully they'll be as easy...I'll keep you posted.
Now that the holidays are over and a new season is upon us, I've decided it's time to focus my attention on something that's really starting to annoy me...the tightness of my pants. Oh my, it's scary people. I can hardly get my fattest pants on and it's getting to the point where I'm going to have to wear my sweatpants out in public...or some maternity pants. Just kidding about that last one there. That definitely won't be happening, it's bad enough wearing them when you're actually pregnant. Ugh...I couldn't stand those things.
Anyway, I've been eating much better this week...lots of salads and such. It feels nice to be back to normal. I cut up all my pomegranates yesterday and put the seeds in the freezer for smoothies. What a mess that was! Anyway, maybe I'll have some healthy recipes to share next time.
Hope you have a great weekend!
