It was just lovely down by the river, and we met a suprising number of fellow bushwalkers. Unfortunately, when we reached the traditional barbecue spot, the fireplaces had been removed by the local council. Being law abiding types, we walked on. We explored a paperbark forest, licked mangrove leaves and then climbed many, many steps to reach the next barbecue spot. This lofty spot required no wood, being all electric, and had a splendid view over the river. Perfect.
I've been considering plans and goals for 2012. This year, I'm trying to focus on value. Spending time doing things I value. I don't value cleaning or housework, but completing them gives me the physical and mental space to create. So these tasks do have value. I also have value. I deserve nice things, including clothes that fit. I deserve time to spend on things I like. Having these things mean I find it easier to be kind.
To try and achieve these things, I'll be following along with Debra of Home Life Simplified on her 52 week challenge.
At the risk of overcommitting, I'm also planning to work along with AJ in her 12WIPs in 2012 challenge. I have plenty of Works In Progress to choose from, so will be evaluating these over the next few days as we unpack and rearrange after our Christmas break.
