Learn Something New

Well, we’re almost half way through January.  Did you make a new year resolution?  How’s it going?  Have you kept your new year resolution?  I have no intentions to cause feelings of guilt or shame as I didn’t even make a resolution! I tried to do the word thing.  You know, come up with one word to live by for the year.  I didn’t get far with that because I couldn’t think of a word.  A few days into January, however, I did come up with a phrase. Inspired by my mother, who is 80 years old and has just started taking swimming lessons in the past year, I’ve decided on a phrase for 2019 which is “Learn Something New”.

Each month I will learn something new which I have not done before.  I actually decided this would be a monthly endeavor as my daughter was teaching me how to knit.  While my girls were using their Hobby Lobby gift cards, I picked out this pretty, soft, ballet pink yarn to make myself a scarf.  As you will see in the photos, I’m trying something new, not trying to PERFECT something new.  I’ve been enjoying knitting this month and even bought another color of yarn as I anticipate some snow days and extra time for knitting.yarn

I’m making myself a list of the months and ideas of what I will try each month. I’m blogging about it because I think it’s a wonderful idea to share, and maybe I’m searching for some suggestions and accountability. (Also, I haven’t blogged in a very long time and this is very fitting with the title of my blog.)
