I cannot believe that it’s been a year since I last posted anything on this blog. I’ve been busy doing so many other things and living life – sometimes just watching it pass me by – that I completely neglected to come in here and chat.
2020 is going to be a transforming year for Camelot and its residents. In about 5 months I will not be working outside the home. My job is being outsourced to Argentina and since I don’t want to move out of the country I will not have a job. At least that’s the plan, we will see what happens in that respect. I’m actually looking forward to it and dedicating my full time attention to my husband and my home and of course, my puppies. I’m determined to make 2020 the year of living purposefully.
Goal #1 Master the Art of Meal Prep and Cooking
We all talk about meal prep and how we wish we could have it all figured out. 2020 is going to be the year I master that “monster” and no longer call it a monster. The plan is to plan out the meals for the week every Sunday and make sure I have all the ingredients at home when I’m ready to make the meal. I’m not sure I can plan the meal down to the day but I think if I plan out 6 dinners every week we can be sure that on the 7th day we will have left overs of something and lunch can always be the left over of the night before or the night before that. Lunch is never going to be a worry or a store bought something.
Goal #2 Plant a Cutting Garden
Who doesn’t love flowers? I love them. I love the scent, the look, the color. I love flowers all over my house. But they are so expensive!!!! I very rarely buy them. This year, since I’m going to have the time I am going to learn to grow and care for a cutting garden. Now I just have to convince my husband where to place it in the backyard and in the very early spring start working on my new hobby. I’m really looking forward to this one.
Goal #3 Baking Bread
Ok, yes, I’m going to be going on a diet as soon as the clock strikes midnight on December 31st. However, I am also going to live my life and enjoy it. I don’t want to restrict too much of what I enjoy. I want to learn to bake bread and instead of buying it in the store I want to make it and eat what I bake. Wonder if that’s healthier?
Most of all I want to enjoy every minute of 2020 and want to bring a sense of peace to my home. I remember the closing of 2018 didn’t feel calm to me. This year, I feel a sense of peace and calmness and a sense of being myself and being comfortable in who I am. I think 2020 is going to be a great year.
See you all soon
