Plans for 2008 - Revisited

It is that time of the year again, when I look back on my plans for 2008 and which one of them I actually put into practice. Well, let's see:

Personal Goals for 2008:
  • Learn to drive. NO.
  • Write more letters. Not really.
  • Keep a journal (on paper). Every now and then.
  • Read at least one book per month. Yikes, not even that!

Crafty Goals for 2008:

  • Finish my Women of the Bible Quilt (top at least). Yeah, right, wake up and smell the roses!
  • Work on my other sampler quilts: Civil War Diary Quilt, Dear Jane. See above.
  • I am going to start a "Finish Something Friday" to – hopefully – get some projects finished. Not a good idea since I am usually busy with other things on Fridays, oh well. ;)
  • Give hand-made gifts only. That I actually did.
  • Make more and different things for my Etsy-Shop. Done that, sold nothing.

Housekeeping Goals for 2008:

  • Keep the house neat and clean. Yep, did okay with that.
  • Declutter regularly. Done.
  • Bake bread, make yogurt, cream cheese and ginger ale. Did that too.
  • Learn to pickle and preserve fruits and vegetables. Not enough to pickle, we ate it all fresh.
  • Learn to make cheese. Not yet.
  • Start a small vegetable and herb garden. Did that, turned out well, but can be improved.
  • Try at least one completely new recipe per month. Not really.
  • Cook something ethnic once a month. Do pizza and mexican food count? ;)
