Happy New Year (or Happy New Year’s Eve)!
Last Sunday I skipped the blog post. It was my birthday! On one hand, it would have been nice to have an “anniversary” blog post, but on the other, I wanted a day without any work whatsoever. So I chose the latter. I basically spent the day knitting, nursing a head cold and binge-watching “Nurse Jackie.”
I turned 49. One more step closer to the big one. So one of my goals this year is to make my health one of the top priorities, or at least a higher one than it was in 2017! This means more healthy eating and more regular exercise. I started the exercise yesterday.
However, my business will not slow down. So another big goal for me is time-management! I want to be a little more mindful of how I manage my time so I can work AND take care of myself each day. How am I going to do this? Well, I’m giving up a few other activities, and I’m writing things down in a planner, and…that’s about it. I have to figure it out as I go along.
I am definitely going to keep on knitting throughout the year. In November, I had a scare because I sold so many knit products (which is a great thing), that I didn’t have enough inventory to take me through December – with seven shows scheduled! So these last two months were a bit of a frenzy for me, working the part-time job, knitting furiously in my free hours, and working at holiday craft shows (probably the reason why I got a head cold on my birthday). Typically I didn’t knit as much in the summertime, but this year that break ends. I always want to have plenty of inventory!
Here’s something I’ll be working on today. It’s a commission from my dad…a late Christmas gift for my mom. I’ve forgotten how much I love stranded knitting. I guess I have time though. My parents are in Arizona until March. 🙂
What are your goals this year? How do you go about accomplishing them? Share them in the comments. I’d love to hear from you!
