Looking Ahead at 2009


First of all, I have a hard time believing it is 2009 in the first place!  Less than a year now to 2010, that seems amazing to me . . . 

I haven't posted goals up here yet, life has kept me pretty busy and it is going to take me a block of time to organize the thoughts in my head.  Last night I did a block carving to make some cards and tonight I assembled some shelves for the spare room that Goldfish shipped from the mainland when she was visiting family.  Speaking of the mainland, it is -30 degrees in East Anchorage right now according to our family there so I'm definitely not complaining about the balmy 37 degree outside right now.

I'm leaning towards having quite a few goals, because I don't forget them by Valentine's Day - I either knock them out or I torment myself for not accomplishing more.  Anyone that knows me can tell you I'm goal oriented, and it always does me good to throw the goals out there to think about and focus on.  And they can also tell you I pretty much enjoy tormenting myself, on some level . . . . 

I'm heading off to bed, cheers and good night!

I am goal-oriented, too, and right now my goal is to enjoy this 82 degree sunny weather of Belize. :) We arrived yesterday and it is unbelievable.

I love the eagle picture. Hope you're enjoying your new camera.

Belize! What a great place to start the new year. I have a friend who retired from the University of Alaska and retired to Belize - just loaded up a trailer and drove there with his wife Susan. I've always wanted to go there . . .

Mamawas, I was enjoying it but a storm is brewing outside as I type. It's still pretty warm though!

Balmy indeed -- it's 19-degrees outside now, clear, blue skies, but nippy.

And 2009 -- ? I have NO idea what this year will bring; I have never been subject to experiencing such tumultuous, rapidly-changing (daily!) times.

And sorry, I'll take cooler climates over hotter ones any day; cancer tends to make one like that.
