Promises for the New Year

Every year I try to make a list of promises to myself.

This is not the traditional list of resolutions that I will break within the week... but a list of things I can do to make this world a better place or me a better person. I have done well with my lists in 2007 and 2008.

Now for the Promises of 2009...
*Write more old fashioned thank-you notes.
*De-clutter my life
*Support our local markets and stay out of Walmart
*Reuse and Recycle
*Go to the eye doctor and get some chic new glasses
*Spend 2 weeks cooking in an Italian kitchen
*Cash in some frequent flyer points
*Carry my own green shopping bags
*Move more~ eat less.
*Read an entire book under an umbrella on the beach
**Attend a wedding!

Not quite as exciting as last year's list... but you only turn fabulous once! I challenge each of you to make your own list of promises.

Here's to 2009~ health, happiness, humanity, and a year of promises.
Happy New Year y'all,
Sandi

Happy New Years, Sandy, Those sound like great things to strive for to me. You know I'm envious about that Italy trip.

Hey, I've got my bean & greens on!

Rhoda~ I've got by peas and greens on too. Lucky us.
Lisa~ I'll always have pictures and recipes... even better from Italy.
Pat~ great minds think alike.
