I’ve got a short and simple list of New Years resolutions this year:
- Finish hardscaping the backyard and grow more vegetables. Steps have already been taken. Above is architectural genius John Zapf and our cat Trout helping with the plans. And it’s got to look good. Be prepared for some kind of geodesic raised bed folly.
- Perfect my 100% whole grain sourdough breads using freshly milled flour. Write up some recipes and share my results.
- Take a trip that involves a class or workshop. I’ve never regretted money spent on education (at least as an adult!).
- Good health. I’ve figured out a simple if quirky equation. If I can fence I’m healthy. If I can’t I’ve got work to do. This pretentious niche sport just happens to combine flexibility, endurance, strategy and speed. This past year it forced me to confront and deal with knee problems. I plan on attempting a few tournaments in 2014.
What are your New Years Resolutions?
