  4. I decided my only "goal" (don't like resolution) this year was to be nicer to people and make an effort to help anyone I can lighten their load in life a little. I decided NOT to resolve to eat healthy, exercise more, etc etc. That is my goal in life so making those declarations on 12/31 seems pointless. Right?!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I left all my New Years resolutions back in the 70's so I have no idea what I should not be doing. Does this mean we must wait until after the scraps have been won before we start out????? Perhaps I SHOULD resolve to be patient.

  80. In Dec in the midst of the feeding frenzy thought of giving up refined sugar for the first few months of the new year (probably to justify eating so much during the holiday season) but come Jan 1st I decided that was too severe. Now decided just to eat more fruit and veg. would love some scraps too to help in your quilt along

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
