Goodbye, 2011! You were very good to me! I hit some amazing life goals with your help.
Hello, 2012! Here are my high hopes for you:
1) I hope you will be the year in which I finish my first book.
2) After roti-making lessons from my lovely mother in law, I hope to make at least 100 batches of roti (5 roti per batch). 1 down and 99 left to go! It's a little silly, but I think it will be a lesson in daily bread, and a cheap way to survive this final semester of the "grad school budget." And I hear roti is a good first food (in a few more months anyway). Perfect!
3) I hope to write down the titles of each of the books I read. Just for the record. Perhaps I'll also write down a few good quotes as I'm reading. It's something I've always meant to do. Right now I'm on an Inklings kick: I just finished Charles Williams two books War in Heaven and The Greater Trumps, I'm currently reading Dorothy Sayers' Whose Body. Sayers' Strong Poison and William's All Hallows' Eve are next up. If you've never read Williams, get yourself to Regent College Bookstore or library now! It will be unlike anything you've ever read before, I can assure you!
And the rest? The parenting, the homemaking, the living? Well, we'll take that one day at a time.
