Happy New Decade! Resolutions?

Never make them anymore until this year…

I have somethings I need to change, and so…

Especially as the stuff that happened in the last two years
really messed up my rhythms… my mojo… my nature!

Gratitude daily, morning and night... I do this lots but I am doing more…

And with that, writing lojong resolves morning and night,
forward and backward.  These two recent posts reminded me of that:
Lojong 42: Patience! and Lojong 41: Two Activities.

Back to a sketch a day.  Everyday.  No rest until I do! 
Can be a watercolor or ink doodle… And more palm trees…

Must finally get back into shape.  Seriously folks.
Walking daily, minding my diet.
Not weight loss per se, but stress and all work no play sent my body into a spin
and that has to change so I make it into 2030 healthy!

Seeing betraying peeps coming at me and then,
telling people who are arses to screw off!

When did I forget to do that?  It is my nature! 


I hope to get back to reading favorite blogs…

And I have a goal, which is to finish a book.

Tonight we are going to do a Closer marathon — murder and mayhem —
then may switch to Monk, though we’ve seen them all.
I was trying desperately to get through all my mother’s boxes gone before 2020
and walked into M in the workroom near tears at 4:30 when I saw I wouldn’t.
He is my hero and said. “Let’s do it together”
and we finished the whole damn thing in 20 minutes. I am walking into 2020
with that behind me, sorted and trashed as it is appropriate.
Tomorrow I will do a bit of cooking and we will sleep in!  

Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbook,
Platinum Carbon Pen with Platinum Carbon ink waterproof cartridges,
Daniel Smith watercolors.
