the lovely diane from the dew drop inn has started a great tradition...every year on new year's eve she passes around a bag filled of words and throughout the night people can pick from this bag. the word you chose is your word for the year...each person has their own interpretation of the word and what he or she chooses to do with that word is up to them. she had left over words and was offering them to her blog buddies and i thought it would be fun so i signed up...she picked out of the bag a word for me and my word is...
i thought it was very fitting as a month before i wrote a list of things i wanted to do before 2012. this little list was inspired by the oh so lovely elsie from a beautiful mess who is an endless bit of inspiration. it was fun to write because it satisfies my love of writing lists but also wanting to try new things, pick up old hobbies or things i want to accomplish.
my list includes a few things like:
*riding my our bikes to santa cruz, camping along the way and then finally staying at the light house hostel!
* making a bike jersey!
* go surfing again!
* go mushroom picking!
*be in the bazaar bizarre craft fair!
now i am not holding myself to this list as life never goes as expected but if i can cross some things off my list, great and whatever doesn't get done will then get transferred to the next years list. i kept in mind also things that were realistic...i mean going to the moon would be SWEET but i don't have a spaceship to get there but i do have two legs and a bike and i can go pretty far with that :D
do you have a list of things you would like to do?
