One Fine Day

Now, I am fully aware that the title of the blog this week is also the name of an absolutely favorite song of mine by the Chiffons, from 1963. Okay, so I was ten years old. But I liked the song as soon as I first heard it.

I’ve chosen this title because I had a good day.

Do you have those too? Days where nothing much happens, and everything is pretty well settled, and you just glide along? No worries, no rushing out the door, no arguments or any sort of discord?

I love days like that. Sometimes they are hard to find. When they do occur, treasure them, because you don’t know when one will happen again.

Those New Year’s Resolutions….

I have exercised. I have eaten healthier and got some cross stitch done, although there was more time spent organizing and preparing projects, than actual stitching.  And started a fresh do over of my family tree, this time with full annotations and citations as one is supposed to do. (I had no idea when I started that this was a thing.)

So….New Year’s resolutions, while not 100% accomplished, are moving along at a good pace.

How about you? Any resolutions that were just too difficult or impossible? Any that you have been able to stick with so far?

Okay, so I am going to admit that this blog is the first thing I’ve written, if you don’t count personal emails, since the beginning of the year.

I think that for next week, I will plan the start of a new short story.

 

Happy New Year

I hope that the old year had a good ending for you.
We all stand now on the brink of a fresh and new year.
May yours be a productive and happy one.
I have made some resolutions, something I have always avoided doing in the past.
1. Write every day.  Get at least a few words down.
2. Do genealogy. That subscription to Ancestry should really be used.
3. Exercise every day. Even 10 minutes on the treadmill counts.
4. Eat healthier and be more aware of calories. Lose a little weight. I feel better at a lower weight.
5. Cross stitch every day, because all of the projects I have on the go are not going to finish themselves. Besides, this resolution grants me the opportunity for one or two new starts, doesn’t it? I thought so!
6. Keep blog updated. I lost interest around the time I should have started November’s NaNoWriMo. Updates galore, for 2018! Promise. Maybe even a new story or two.
