Readers, if this post gives you the picture of a very dull person whose life revolves around blogging and gardening, well, that would have the great merit of being partially true, wouldn’t it? So you can can spice things up by adding your own New Years Resolutions in comments.
- To get the goddamn free weights out of the box and start using them. OK, later in the spring, because we don’t want to rush in to these things.
- This year, to order blueberry bushes and perennials from Fedco before it’s too late.
- Not to be so mingy with the newspaper and the straw, but to sheet mulch thickly and completely.
- To drink less milk and more water and wine; to eat less meat and more plants; to eat less sugar and more honey and ginger.
- To clean — and, er, disinfect — my kitchen, and if I can’t find the time to do it, find the money to have it done.
- To stop throwing my bills into a big pile on the kitchen table, and then waiting for the shut-off notices to pay them.
- To actually assemble my stand-up desk, and then to work at it, standing up.
- To learn to sketch more fluently on a small scale (I want to make more charts and diagrams).
- To write some posts on the depredations of private equity.
- To curate more vital and unique sources for NC Links and crossposts. (Readers?)
- To stop pulling my punches on Democrats, and to say what I really feel.
- No more Mr. Nice Guy on CT.
And so, for revelers, a leaf of the dog….
NOTE I must admit that I loathe Christmas, because of the enforced jollity, and I loathe New Years, because it combines enforced jollity with drunkenness, and so I welcome the end of “the Holidays” with relief. So now let’s all move gratefully along to January snows, the 60 days of February, and then the mud season!
