A Brand New Slate

Here we are in another brand new year already.

Honestly,  I don’t know where last year went.  One minute we were facing a total knee replacement, undergoing a rough recovery, attending an annual quilt retreat in Florida, surviving the winter months, gardening, canning, starting a new venture at our local Farmers Market, starting a new job, enjoying loads of company and the next minute, we’re ringing in a New Year.  Of course, we rang it in in our typical fashion  – behind closed eyelids.  Ha!  We did have several friends come over after church on New Years Eve. We played Uno and Nertz and snacked on all sorts of goodies then we devoured some of CountryBoy’s delicious homemade French bread and stew.  Fun times!  By 7:00 p.m. we all just KNEW it was late and close to the new year.  Ha!  It wasn’t even close but we had a great time nonetheless and everyone went their separate ways.

This morning, we woke up to a surprise dusting of snow. It was beautiful!  It reminded me, on this first day of a brand new year, that we all have the opportunity to start the year fresh with new dreams, plans, ideas, and goals.  A brand new slate, if you will.

By nature, I’m a planner, a dreamer and a goal-setter so the start of a brand new year excites me – 365 days to fulfill my plans, dreams and goals!

I’ve been busy praying and filling out my 2018 Life & Business Planner.

My words and phrases for the new year are… SIMPLICITY, WRITE, GROW, and DISCOVER MY PASSION.

I have lots of plans, goals and projects in mind for the year but they are simple in nature.  Nothing grandiose or complex.  Simplicity at its finest.  And, lucky you, you’ll get to see them fulfilled right here!

I also plan on living and thriving in 2018 and not merely existing.  I want to find my niche here in the mountains of Kentucky and share more of Dream Valley Farmstead, in some fashion, with others!

How ’bout you?  Do you have big plans, dreams or goals for 2018 that you care to share in the comments?
