AUTUMN RESOLUTIONS AND GOALS

  1. Commit to getting back in shape.
    The last 18 months has taken its toll on me, mentally and physically. When the weather starts to cool, it's time to just get on it.
  2. Try to get through my massive pile of books.
    I keep buying more and now it's overwhelming.
  3. I'm likely going to delete my Facebook account. I think Instagram and @list are enough, and frankly I'm just over it.
  4. Spend time with our friend's new babies.
    Babies make everything better.
  5. Get experimental in the kitchen again.
    I've lost some of that passion. I like to pick an ethnic recipe that I've never made, once a week, and give it a whirl. Or a recipe from a different cookbook each week. I think I'll start here!
  6. Speaking of..
    I need to work on my sous-vide techniques. This is a fairly new acquisition, and Fall seems like the perfect time to hone my skills!
  7. I'd like to work on my language skills as well.
    I will be checking France and Italy off the bucket list (we leave in three weeks!) but I'd like to keep up with some conversational French, Italian and Spanish.
  8. I have a lot of things to "go through"..
    Boxes of my daughter's things I've yet to touch, unread cards and letters..I just haven't been able to do it.
  9. Start designing my tattoo.
    For her. Been putting that off too.
  10. Work toward this..
  11. And stop being so hard on myself when I'm none of those things.
