Promises for the year

I had said that I wasn't going to make resolutions for the new year. Most resolutions go by the wayside with the diet food and the treadmill after only a few months. I start off strong~ then fade out by the middle of January.
After giving it some thought, I have decided to make a list of things that I am going to accomplish this year. Not so much resolutions, but a list of 10 promises to myself. You might even call it a to-do list for 2007.

*paint my toe-nails Strawberry Margarita pink
*learn to like sushi
*sing 'Amazing Grace' when there is a beautiful sunset
*make a snow angel on the sandy beach
*wear sunscreen~ all the time
*ride in a London cab
*use whitening toothpaste
*drive a smart car
*throw away things that are out of date
*be healthier by drinking red wine and eating dark chocolate

I could go on...once you get started it is hard to stop!
I hope that we can find humanity and peace in this big world, and that each of you can find the promise in the new year.
Happy New Year Y'all!

I think being healthy is about a little more then drinking red wine and eating dark chocolate ; )

Oh boy I'll make that last promise with you!!!
And to that end I'm going to start a wine diary on my blog soon.

I second eating chocolate and drinking red wine for your health--in moderation, of course!

And if you're eating sushi (which I hope you grow to enjoy), you're pretty much following Dr. Weil's recipe for healthy aging.

Happy new year!

Scott~ you are sooo right and I will add salsa dancing to the list!
Tanna~ you can help with my wine choices, but I don't think I'd want to keep a diary for Scott to see.
Peabody~ OPI! (but no sipping the nail polish)
Ciao Ivonne! How's your list?
Homesick Texan~ Healthy aging is what it's all about. I'll need to work on the sushi...

Sandy, great blog you have here! I will look forward to your recipes. I loved the "Whistlestop Cafe" stories by Fanny Flagg. :)

Thanks for coming by; we had hoppin' john, greens, ham and biscuits, shrimp salad, and two great cakes at a party on New Year's Eve. I've never had such great greens; I wonder what they did?

I love the idea of calling them promises. I chose the term goals, but I like promises much better. Your list is great! I'm going to have to check that nailpolish out next time I'm getting my toes done. I just love the name!

Chani~ You are right that is a classic...did you peek in at the WhistleStop Cafe Site- these is lots of history about Fannie Flagg
