Practical? Or pie in the sky? Coulda woulda shoulda? Learn vs try - a difference of intensity, commitment, passion?
Combining last week and this week:
1. Try to get back to the exercise habit. I fell through a hole in the floorboards of that wagon after the winter season ended.
2. Try and organize my stuff. Yeah, perennial favorite, this one. But this is an aspirational list, rather than a to-do list.
3. Try to cook more new recipes. That will include healthy, delicious lunches that substitute for the crap sold in the hospital cafeteria. Their tuna tastes like metal. Their sandwiches look like they were put together by Salvador Dali.
4. Try to keep better connection with my distant friends. I come home from work tired, and the weekends are filled with shoulds/must dos. Reordering of time is on the list.
5. Learn to weave better stuff. Or, as one famous spinner puts it, "suck less".
6. Learn enough Spanish on top of what I know to become fluent. I need to learn something other than the present tense. Sikudi nopazmi! (Oops. High Valyrian doesn't count.)
7. Try to learn to knit faster. (HA. Both at once, try and learn.)
8. Learn to knit good sweaters. Lynn says the only way to do this is to do this. Crap. I knew there was a catch.
9. Try to clean up the garden before it reverts back to woodland. Neck and neck on this one.
10. Try to watch the Belmont Stakes if California Chrome is running. He may be the first Triple Crown winner in 36 years. Reminds me of Secretariat, when he would pull multiple lengths away from the rest of the field, and coast across the finish line. (The camera has trouble keeping all the horses in one shot here. Understand that throughout Triple Crown history, 27 horses have won the Derby and the Preakness, but have failed at the extra length of the Belmont Stakes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V18ui3Rtjz4
11. Try to blog more often. I have so much knitting backlog to post.
