Happy 2012!!

Hellooooo possums!!! 
(said in my best Dame Edna voice)  J

Gosh, it’s been awhile, hasn’t it?
So much has happened!
But it was really really good to have the time off. 
I needed that, apparently. J

So, Happy 2012!!  How have you all been?
Did you make any New Year’s Resolutions?
Any new goals?

I have only made one resolution, so far,
and that is to stop using a particular word.
We don’t cuss, but there’s one word
that’s a little too close for me,
and I’m tired of having that word in my life.

(it rhymes with wrap)

And I’m just wanting my speech
to be a bit purer, I guess.
And what a gross word, anyway.
I much prefer “phooey”.  J

What else?
Oh!  I have a new knitting class this month
that I’m looking forward to. 

(to which I am looking forward--for some of you,
and you know who you are!  LOL)

I took Knitting I in November,
and now this month will be Knitting II.
I am very excited about it.  (!)

I received several knitting books for Xmas
(for the non-beginner, but not quite yet experienced)
and the most incredible set of handmade pastels.
120 different colors!!!

What did you get??
It’s embarrassing to be so blessed
and get “toys” for Xmas, isn’t it?

Speaking of toys,
I have resisted getting an iPad2 so far.
We’ll see how long I can hold out.

Surely Mr. Man will upgrade his iPhone
this next time and maybe I’ll inherit his old one.
I’m sooooo not techno,
it would probably be wasted on me, though.
Right now I have a cell phone
that I forget to turn on half the time,
but it’s there if I ever need to call 911.
That’s about my speed.  J

So far I haven’t felt the need to be
as “connected” as is popular these days,
but I think that’s because
Mr. Man has his iPhone on him
when we’re out together.

Like I said, we’re so blessed.
Isn’t it so American to be wondering
if I should upgrade to this or that?
Good grief!

Now, on the blog front….. 
I’m not sure what I want to do
for my blog for 2012.

I’m thinking I’m gonna just
let the spirit move me this year.
Just post whenever.

OTOH, a TGIF entry sounds fun--
post only on Fridays, but not necessarily every Friday. 
Hmmm…. I may try that. 

Until further notice,
look for me on Fridays.  
Hopefully, that will be convenient for everyone.

My time off taught me many things.
First of all, I’ve learned through having this blog
 that I don’t have as many words in me
as I thought I did.

But there are some things,
especially some more favorite products,
that I really do want to mention…

But this year,
I think I want to experiment a little
with how I approach my blog.
I hope y’all don’t mind.  (!) 

Again, I don’t really know what that means,
but maybe we can find out together.  ♥

In the meantime,
I sincerely hope that 2012 is
a fabulous year for ALL of us.
Heaven knows some of us could really enjoy that, right?

We joke about the Mayan calendar
and the world ending next December 21st,
but they say it’s healthy to live a bit
as if there’s no tomorrow.

(As long as you have your insurances
and retirement fund in place, right? -- hahaha)

So, what’s on your Bucket List??

Maybe 2012 is the year
for crossing some of those things off. 
Maybe I should begin by making a bucket list. 
LOL  I’ve never really had one. 

Oh, once I decided that I wanted to go to
a pawn shop someday, so I did,
and it was a downer.
But I got it crossed off, that’s for sure.

Why was I wanting to see inside a pawn shop, anyway??
Oh well. 
You can’t pick these things, you know… 
you discover them!

Okay, didn’t mean to get into novel mode on ya.  J
I just wanted to check in and say:

TGIF!!  Happy New Year!!
And God bless you and yours!!

  1. A Happy New Year to you and yours.

  2. We must have been separated at birth! I had only a few things on my list for 2012; one was to stop saying the 'wrap' word (and for much the same reason--really too close to cussing for me) and to be less connected to technology (she says as she types on her laptop).

    Knitting sounds like a great new hobby but I guess I don't really need another hobby. My current 'hobby' is also my job and it both makes me money and takes my money (

    Hope 2012 is a great year for you! I'll be looking for your Friday posts!

    Happy New Year!

  3. @CJ -- Happy New Year!!
    @Kim -- What are the odds??

    I hope you both are enjoying the new year!
    I'm just thankful that Finding Bigfoot is back on. hahahahaha

    Have a good one!
