I don’t know about you, but I have never been very big on making New Years resolutions. I think resolutions are made, then two weeks later forgotten or set aside. Since I have this hangup with the whole concept of new years resolutions, I am hoping to just set a few goals and call them “changes”.
1. I am hoping the first “change” will be a fun one. I plan on becoming a Master Gardener. All the ground work has been laid, and my classes start in 2 weeks from today. I am very excited about this. It is one of those things I have wanted to do for a few years, but just never got around to. I have a feeing, I will be sharing some of my new found knowledge with you in the near future.
2. Now this second “change” will be a much bigger challenge. I am hoping that by years end to be eating 100% locally. Produce doesn’t seem too big of a challenge, I figure what I can’t grow, I can attain without too much trouble. But, I want it to be more then that, though baby steps are the only way here. I am not a vegetarian so this “change” will mean finding local meat, milk ect. With my end goal being all local food and no processed food. Another problem I face, is that since the oil spill, I am not eating any seafood from the Gulf of Mexico I live only a mile from. I know “they” say the seafood is safe but just yesterday more tar balls are washing up on our beaches. GRRRR….
So here’s to me and you if you are also trying out some “changes”!
