2014 boxes to tick...

Yeah, pretty late in putting up a "Happy New Year" post - but then, that is okay.  One of my 2014 boxes is to be a little realistic in the bars I set myself. 

I fail. I often do, but I do need to give myself a break on the self-beatings regarding it.  This year, I am going to try and turn my failures into lessons, and even if it means just a simple "well, not going to try THAT again" then darn it, I might glean something.

I do have blog posts I was MEANT TO post in draft, just waiting for inspiration - but they aren't out there yet because I didn't have the necessary mojo.  That is okay - one day perhaps those draft posts might see light of day.  Or not.  Writing them at the time served a purpose, even if it was to learn when not to hit "Publish".

(One of the "meant to" posts is in regard to the Dip that Bush Babe mentioned in her Christmas post - yeah, I know, weeks ago - and I would link but her site is currently crashed out - which will happen as it was YUM.  Another of the "meant to" posts was for the Garden Share Collective,  but the wind and the heartbreak of the garden at the moment really kyboshed anything happening.  I have hopes for next month and there are blooms on the Lime Tree, but Northerlies, Grasshoppers and Powdery Mildew are seeping it badly)

I finally got offered a decent enough contract for paid work to relax on that front (the joys of temping), so will be doing some work towards setting up my own business website in my downtime to build something before that contract ends.  Don't try don't get, hey?

I also have another project in the works that, if it comes off, I will let you all know about.  he he he.

And on top of that, I plan to perhaps do some study so that I have a bit of paper to go with a swag of skills that I do have but can't offer because they changed the requirement for a piece of paper.

So, a post that isn't a post about nothing at all - but it breaks the duck.

Hello 2014 - lovely to see you.

"Writing them at the time served a purpose, even if it was to learn when not to hit "Publish"."

Wonderful statement above. The older I get, the worse I've become about speaking before considering the consequences of my words. I need to refrain from hitting the publish (vocalize) "button" in my head a little more often these days.

I do hope we'll still see that recipe at some point.

Lots to smile about here, Ms. Jeanie!

Oh, I do that too. I have so many drafts, it's windy. Always love your posts, wind or not ;)
