My 2014 Resolutions
In the interest of increasing the odds of my following said resolutions, here's this year's short & sweet list:
1) I will continue to share home-made bread. This one is a biggie for me because I realize this is how I make an impact on people, limited as it might be, while feeding a personal passion. For the record, last year, I managed to produce a total of about 700 lbs of dough out of our home kitchen - and I took a month off of baking to visit family in Italy - with (I'm guessing) more than 80% of that going to neighbours, friends and as "thank you's" for a job well done.
2) I will move more. Trying to get a grip on my weight, so I'll start with that.
3) I will do more of what I want. The death of several folks near and dear to me in 2013 reminds me that life is short.
4) I will cull and simplify (a bit). In light of how short life is, I may as well trim a bit and keep my life as simple to manage as possible, clearing up time/energy for other things I want to do (still working on that list). That said, I say "a bit" because I don't see myself going as far as living in a one-room Thoreau-esque cabin in the woods living on nothing but what I grow. All things in moderation, including moderation.
Have a great 2014 everyone!
