I don't have any specific resolutions this year, other than to live my life each day, enjoying the small things, and simply being, nothing earth shattering. Just taking one day at a time and making the most of it.
I was up early on this first day of the year, four am. I came downstairs, made some coffee, did about half an hour of crochet, a few crosswords online while I ate my oatmeal, read a chapter of Less Than Angels, by Barbara Pym (one of my favorite authors), wrote this post and am now going to bundle up and go for a good brisk walk. Later this morning I will go to Mass, then come home to cook a New Years Day dinner for the family. I enjoy cooking and will make a stuffed pork loin, potatoes croquette, cabbage au gratin and gravy, the dessert will be banana pudding. For myself I will have a lovely vegan bowl of goodness, lentils and tomatoes, with steamed veggies.
And tomorrow, well it will have it's own enjoyable moments and I will make sure I try to enjoy them all.
