I was snoozing instead of ringing in the New Year last night/this morning. Good thing, because PJ woke up at 5:30 again. We didn’t do anything too exciting today.
I made some orange/pommelo rind candy. I have pictures, but I’ll post them later.
I was going to make a post about goals and whatnot, that’s the thing to do this time of year, right? A lot of things are up in the air right now so the goals are kinda foggy. I have thought about trying to do (another) 365 Project (take a picture every day for a year) and I just can’t commit. I took a picture (of the candy) today in case I decide to do it. Bah, indecisiveness.
Overall, my goals are:
1. Buy less stuff from China. No offense to the Chinese. The Chinese rock! It’s half principle and half challenge. I love a good challenge; I’m stubborn like that.
2. Try to make more vegetarian meals. I pretty much suck at vegetarian stuff. I’m not that creative. Can you hear Evan groaning yet? WATCH OUT sweetie, the veggies and grains are coming your way. I was thinking about a “Meatless Monday” once-a-week kind of thing, but not necessarily on a monday because that is WAY TOO RESTRICTIVE.
3. Try to buy more local/natural food. This is hard because of $ and seasons and logistics and excuses.
4. Exercise regularly. I’m nearly at the end of a 100 mile challenge in 100 days. Walking, running, whatever. I’m going to make it. Barely. I’m on week 4 of Couch to 5K. There is a race I have been thinking about entering but it’s on ET’s birthday. I haven’t planned his party or anything (hmm that should be goal #5) but here you can see indecisiveness strikes again.
