Last January I wrote a list of resolutions based on Pioneer Woman’s post about New Years Resolutions. She and I made our lists starting with the first letters of the word “resolution”… For this year’s list I thought it would be fun to use the word “GARDEN.
Here’s what I came up with:
Go to the New England Flower Show in March.
Arrange a New England Garden Blogger’s Day here in Salem for sometime in the spring.
Ride out to visit the New England Wild Flower Society‘s garden “Garden In the Woods” in Framingham, Massachusetts.
Dedicate one hour, three times a day to my home garden.
Expand my reach here at The Salem Garden. I’m thinking about connecting with some garden product lines and changing my look a little bit.
Notice the little things as much as possible, and take photos of them.
Yes, this is a very garden related list, but won’t it be an amazing year if I can accomplish some of these ideas?
–I’m aching to get to the Flower Show this year and the NEWFS garden has been on my list forever. I just have to make time and do it!
–I’ve been thinking a lot about how nice it would be to connect with other garden bloggers in person and I can’t really find any type of gathering here in New England. What do you think? Leave a comment or e-mail me at email@example.com if you have thoughts about getting together. It could be simple, low cost and fun!
–Now that my kids are a little bigger and we’ve settled in to the working mom situation I want to get back to my home garden with great focus. I may not make it out there three times a day but if I try to I think I’m more likely to succeed. My biggest obstacle is that once I’m out in the garden I don’t want to go back inside.
–I’ve been thinking about adding some things and changing the format here at The Salem Garden. We’ll see if that comes together in 2014.
–I see so many interesting views and details in my travels that I want to slow down and document with my camera. If will be great if I can, although there’s usually several people asking me to stop taking photos and keep up the pace, please.
Here’s last year’s list:
Rest more, I’m on the run (if not actually running) a LOT!
Eat healthier snacks (yesterday my 18 year old son said “stop making cookies mom!”)
Own every decision
Live in the present
Use my camera everywhere
Take my kids to the beach once a week (even in winter)
Increase my blogging skills
Owe no one
Next fall, plant some hellebores, I keep wanting to do that!
This was a pretty subjective list but I must say I did pretty well. Not so sure about resting and sleeping, eating healthier is always increasing, I have to remember to take my camera, blogging is coming along and with such a large family the budget is always a bit of a challenge. I still have some loose ends (like those darned hellebores) but overall we’re on a good track.
What does your list look like? Share in the comments, or feel free to comment about mine. 😉
Happy New Year!
