Focus into 2008...

This was the topic of last week's Photo of the Day challenge. I jumped in on the last day. Most everyone posted New Year's resolutions, but we all know that resolutions are made to be broken. I do have a few goals that I'd like to accomplish in 2008...

1. Be healthy - hence the photo above. I've fallen off the proverbial horse recently. I'm determined to be more active and change my diet. A big problem is that the gym is boring me to tears recently. Lucky for us, my wonderfully thoughtful Aunt sent us some UnderArmor for Christmas... so now we have no excuse not to get out there, even in the cold, and bike, run, snowboard, do anything but be lazy. We took our bikes out this weekend and rode 17.25 miles. And it was so refreshing.

2. Begin my journey into domesticity - My husband will love this one. He has challenged me to cook one meal a week. Baby steps people, baby steps...

3. Focus on my photography - I'm going to try to learn all that I can this year. I've already registered for a few classes and seminars and I have quite a few intimidating books on my 'to-read' pile. And most of all, I need a lot of PRACTICE. So if you have some willing models, you know who to call.

4. Make decent progress on our home renovation list - We've already repainted the office. Next we'd like to put down hardwood in the office to replace a hideous green carpet. Then we'd like to redo the powder room downstairs. The previous homeowners seem to have thought that wallpaper border looks good in EVERY room of the house. Blech.

And what better way to close than to share some photos of Chloe from this weekend... who's idea of heaven involves a thin slice of winter sunlight, let in by the front door...
