Remember this post? I set goals for 2014 - not resolutions, but goals to help me accomplish things without getting bogged down in too many things.
1. Work on my
genealogy stuff (as mentioned before). Specifically, I want and need to
get through the stack of papers my in-laws brought in October - which I
haven't touched. Done! I know have tons of family information in my Family Tree Maker.
2. Lose my
cruise/holiday weight (as mentioned before)....and get stronger while
improving my flexibility. Michelle Dozois, here I come! I lost my cruise weight - several times, in fact,, my holiday weight....and I got down to my lowest weight in a very long time. And then came hyperthyroidism, radiation, and hypothyroidism. Michelle Dozois' Peak 10 Challenge was great! I did it twice in 2014! I also started weight training and yoga at the campus rec. This goal was definitely accomplished!
3. Read 20 books this year. Last year I read 16 so surely this is doable. Done! I read 23 books and was so close to finishing one more. Arg!
4. Try 20 new recipes (20 seems to be my magic number). I really want to do more in the kitchen, especially more new
stuff! I love the foods I make....so I want to keep making them! But
I'm going to try new things!! This is partly inspired by my friend, SK, who set a great kitchen goal last year and met it! Um....I tried 42 new recipes in 2014. Wow! I'm truly amazed by that number! There's no way I can do that again but I'll try to do some....maybe the original goal of 20. Ha!
5. Knit 3 projects this year. I don't care what they are, even if they're dishcloths....I just want to do more knitting. Fail. I finished one project this year. Sigh.
6. The biggie: finish my novel. I'm so close.... Aha! I finished....with only a few holes to fill in. The novel is also edited. It just requires a bit of work to fill in some places . Still, so close!
