goals for 2008

So last year's goal list was woefully unfinished. That's ok. Moving (three times!) sort of rearranged my priorites; not only did I not organize my bookshelves, I gave the actual shelves away and currently all my books are in boxes. The closest I came to a sewing project was stitch-witching the hems on napkins for Thanksgiving. And so each uncompleted task has a story that really doesn't matter. But that's not going to keep me from making goals for this year. As of this moment, they're very much concerned with the mental and physical side of life, rather than making my surroundings beautiful, with one major exception: we want to buy a house. At which time you, my faithful readers, will once again be subjected to endless ramblings on the subject of paint colors.
  • Buy a house. This one is on hold until the market stabilizes.
  • Run a 5k. I trained for one, and I could have, although I would be the last finisher. But we're planning on one in March of next year. 
  • Eat fish at least once a week. So didn't happen.
  • Eat more fruits and veggies. Yay! I think I can say I did this! 
  • Have a garden, even if it's tiny. Didn't even manage to plant flower bulbs
  • Have a fashion spread published with my photography. I did have an image published, although not a spread. 
  • Photograph at least six weddings. Currently scheduled for 12. 5/21/08
  • Take up a hobby with my husband. We take pictures together, does that count? 
  • Learn to solve a Rubik's cube without any help.
  • Finish the quilt I started last year.
  • Knit a pair of gloves and a pair of socks for le husband.
  • Blog at least 5 times a week. Hah. This is so. not. happening.
  • Take one photo a day until next January 4. This fell by the wayside almost immediately.

my fella and I picked up a great new cookbook at B&N last month that has, among other things, some lovely fish recipes. (Not that we've been able to try them yet, as we've been out of the country, but we were salivating just reading the darned thing!) Anyhow you might see if your library has a copy in.

It's called "Aqvavit and the new Scandinavian cuisine," and don't fear the title - it's not all pickled beets and herring (though we've found both are delicious if made from scratch). Rather, it's very modern, and has a good dose of international influences (you'll find tempura and pho recipes within its pages).

Anyhow, just if you're looking for some inspiration! =)

love your goals! thank you for sharing them with us.

I can't wait to see you reach your goals this year. Your photography is really great. I am a true beginner, but one of my goals for this year is to take more photos, learn to use my camera on manual and visit blogs of my favorite photographers for inpiration. Thanks for sharing your goals.
