Looking forward to 2021

 Possible New Year Resolutions...

Eat more vegetables (eat a vegetable).
Travel more (perhaps even to the bottom of the garden).
Enjoy the occasional break (but no more bones).
Keep glasses safe (best to leave them in spectacle case by side of bed and never wear them).
Reduce time in bed (19 hours a day to 18).
Reduce time playing with phone (4 hours to 3.75 hours).
Live dangerously (go up and down stairs).
Begin Christmas shopping earlier (say February).
Write diary (and get beyond 10th January). 


  1. Oh so funny, I love your list.

  2. No matter which of these resolutions you will adopt, I hope 2021 will be a good year for you and yours!

  3. I can't remember when I last made a New Year resolution and I'm not starting now.

    1. So is that your resolution? Not to make resolutions?

  4. All very good resolutions! I hope 2021 is a better year for the world and for you. I can't say I'm sad to see this one pass. So much happened and even though we had much sadness we also experienced a few miracles. For that I'm thankful. Happy New Year to you and your family!

  5. This sounds quite reasonable. Happy New Year!

  6. I know this post was a jokey one, but if you're serious about journaling, I have a trick. I used to keep a regular journal (ages ago) and it fell by the wayside. My blog is basically my journal now, but as other people read it I don't, of course, pour out the innermost lashings of my soul's sea on the shore of my mind (or whatever).

    When we first moved in to our house, I started keeping a "garden journal" to track the progress of our gardens and planting plans, and to note the different seasons and what they brought. There was no rhyme or reason to the writing of this journal - basically I made an entry when there was something new to say.

    Over time, this journal has become more like a regular journal - I still write about the gardens, the animals, etc. but I also add in "real life" things, things I am thinking about or planning, or hoping, etc.

    The fact that it is my "garden journal" keeps me from feeling pressured. The sure way to kill a journaling project is for it to be an added responsibility. By making my journal ostensibly about the gardens, it's remained fun... and I have also kept doing it.

    1. Ì agree - diaries should be fun not an obligation. Same as all hobbies.
