Today is Boxing Day in England, the day after Christmas when you take the boxes back to the store. We lived in England for 3 years in the 70"s stationed with the U.S. Air Force in Suffolk near Ipswich, England. I never fully understood boxing day as all the stores were closed and it was a holiday so how could you take the boxes back? Maybe someone out there can give me a good explanation.
Last night we watched Julie and Julia! What a lovely movie. I love to write and do a monthly interior decorating column for our local newspaper. Can I put a link on here to it? Anyway, Julie had a goal to cook every recipe in Julia's cookbook in one year. And she did it! And got published and had a movie made.
I need to set a goal for next year. One major goal and I am reluctant to put it in writing for fear I will not succeed. It is the usual goal of sticking to some sort of weight loss/exercise program which falls by the wayside by the end of January. Someone please help me to get over this hump.
I would love to write a book. Maybe I could set a goal of cooking every night. We eat out a LOT! Maybe I could set a goal of cooking a healthy meal from sparkpeople every night or one of the many diet cookbooks I have. Maybe my Blog should be titled "How I lost weight!" That would be a postive statement. I've already got a stumbling block ahead of me. I will be out of town or away from my computer for several days in January so those are blank days in my mind. Maybe I should break down and finally get a laptop. Maybe someone out there, if you read this, can help me with this. Or maybe just musing and messing around, I'll figure it out. I'll be back.
