New Year Resolutions

The end of August marks the beginning of the school year.  As a teacher, this is more of a "New Years" than January is. I've decided to make a few resolutions as I start the 2010-11 school year. I hope that posting them out for all to see on the blog will help me stick to them!
  1. I've got a wedding dress to fit into. (Yep, already bought one!) I will try to workout at least 3 times a week. I am so good about going to the gym in the summer. I hope to keep it up during the hectic school year for once! 
  2. I vow to continue buying all produce from local producers until the growing season is over.  Rockford's farmer's markets have become very strong. I love that every type of produce I'd want at this time of year is available from a local grower. 
  3. I vow to continue cooking 3-4 nights a week. After a week away from any cooking, I forget how much I really like it and how good I feel doing it.  Tonight I took all of the leftovers from the fridge and invented a new dish. I parboiled some pasta, layered it with leftover grilled eggplant, onions,  garlic, and summer squash, added some diced tomato, basil and oregano from my garden, threw in some egg and cheese to bind it, and baked it in the oven. Yum!
  4. Last, but not least, I vow to write one blog post a week. I have plenty to write about...No lethargy allowed!
I leave you with a newish piece I've created entitled " Try, Look, Show, Tell." 

Ta. Ta.


    1. These are great resolutions! Thanks for sharing them. :)

      Have a great day!

    2. Good, solid plans- and totally do-able, by the looks of them. funny- i look forward to 'back to school' because then i can finally get into an exercise rythm because the kids are gone all day! also an art-making rythm, house-keeping, anything else that's of interest to me, instead of them- rythm!
      **In your free time- ha-ha- I'm wondering if you might have a moment to answer some questions I have about having prints made of my collage pieces- I'm wondering what you did for prints before you bought your epson?


    Thanks for chiming in! I love to hear what you have to say.
