Happy New Year everyone!

I’ve had a pretty quiet year so far. It’s not been empty, but I haven’t felt rushed. Bathroom renovations have taken up the last couple of weeks including Christmas Eve and Boxing Day. Apart from that I’ve been sewing, reading and keeping up with my 440 words a day minimum. The last few days there’s been editing work as well.

In reality, this year probably hasn’t been much quieter than last year at the same time. The only difference was last year I was getting exciting about going away for a week long course at the end of the month and this year I have very little planned.

I’m going to keep writing obviously, and I hope to pick up more editing. Sewing is something I can always find more to occupy myself with, and my accounting job keeps coming at it’s steady rate. That’s the everyday things. Beyond that I have the studies I started last year, and dropped partway though. I must pick those up again. The Greek is good for my mind and a good Bible study tool, while Theme Mastery something I really need for my writing.

I’ve also got a couple of exciting things coming up. Camping in March with a bunch of Homeschoolers including Jane Maree, and in October I’ll be going to the Creation Super Conference which is sure to be exciting. Loads of information and people to meet, a long car trip, and the perfect climate for swimming. Yes, I’m rather excited.

Last year I was considering the possibility of figuring out a way to attend Realm Makers this year, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. I thought about it after hearing two good writing friends say they hoped to go this year, but I don’t feel that adventurous right now. I’m not sure why, but right now my daydreams of travel are quite happy to remain only day dreams. I’m happy to stay home reading and writing.

The natural house daydreams have been plaguing me again lately. I need to use them as motivation to get other things done, because they can take up a bit of time.

Honestly, that lack of ambition is scaring me a little. Even if I don’t feel like it right now, I really do know I want something to happen in my life, and I can see I’m doing almost nothing to make it happen. I’m becoming one of those passive people who never make interesting characters in books. Probably not even funny side characters. Just a background character that doesn’t contribute anything. And I wasn’t put on this earth to do nothing. I have a purpose.

Now that I’ve got all that out of my head, I’ll just wrap this up by wishing you all a blessed, productive, wonderful year.

 

Great peace have those who love your law and nothing can cause them to stumble.

Psalm 119:165
