2015 WishingsMonday, January 05, 2015
Another year come and gone, where resolutions were made and eventually forgotten.
Hey, it happens.
But since it's now 2015, the start of another great year, it's the perfect time to make some new wishes, hopes, and goals.
|So that one day I might be able to swim in a sea of gold coins.|
Take a Trip.
Fix Up Our Lawn/Start a Garden.
I started out planting two rose bushes that my grandma had given me. One actually bloomed! But then we got Boyboy and his favorite spot to lie in became the wet earth around the bushes. Needless to say, they were soon uprooted. Thinking that maybe I should start inside the house, I bought living basil and was hoping to turn it into a bush that I would be able to get fresh basil from on a regular basis. It died within two days. Then John bought me a beautiful mum plant. They're supposed to be hardy and the colors are gorgeous. It has since passed away. Hopefully in 2015 I'll be able to dedicate more time to gardening and fixing up our lawn. We actually have really good soil - it just needs a little T.L.C.
Keep Up and Get More Followers on the Blog
Right before 2014 ended, I got my own domain name. So you might have noticed that the blogspot was dropped from my URL. I think that was a great first step in the right direction of keeping up and devoting more time to the blog. I did a pretty OK job of writing on the blog consistently as well as writing about different topics. But I did notice that I let a lot of ideas, projects, reviews, and recipes slip through my fingers. I also want to feature more of John's projects on here. He loves working with his hands and has refinished a rocking bench and made our doggies a house. His work deserves some recognition too. I'm still trying to figure all of the bloggy stuff out but I'm hoping that this year I'll get an even more variety of topics up and delve into more of my everyday life. And hopefully people will like it.
I know that I've only offhandedly mentioned that I cross-stitch and sew but I do hope that this year will allow me more time to create things. I'm constantly pinning home DIYs to my Pinterest boards or looking up sewing tutorials on YouTube. From throw pillows to infinity scarves I plan to create more this year.
These wishes are actually looking doable which makes me happy. The feeling of being able to cross them off the list next year and say that I kept up with them will feel great.
Do you have any goals, resolutions, wishes, or hopes for 2015?
