This morning I was thinking about some of my intentions for this year. (I have still to do my vision board but will share when done).
One of my intentions is to write more – not just blog posts. I want to re-work my book proposal and idea and play around with that concept. But I also want to write some fictional short stories. I’ve got a couple of stories here that I began many moons ago that need ‘fleshing out’, hard editing and reworking so I’ll begin with them.
Another of my intentions is to travel. In the past months, I have developed a desire to learn more of my roots. This would entail a trip to Budapest to meet family I have never met and to visit the place where my father grew up before defecting the country. I figured that if I am going to leave my country to visit another, then I may as well plan a trip. When I looked at flights and realised that that many flights require stop-overs and flight changes, and that I wouldn’t be able to leave the airport I was a bit miffed. I’ve planned out a trip in my mind (and on paper) where I travel, stop for a couple of days and then travel on again. This way we can see parts of the world that I have always wanted to. So far, this is a dream but I am working on the GG.
The other thing I want to do more of is to read. I am challenging myself to get through the pile of books beside my bed. I must curb my appetite for purchasing new fodder (2 new e-books, one received in the mail and another one just ordered) that many of you enablers out there are sharing with me as well. I will never get through the pile if I keep adding to it 😉
And I want to take more photos again and try to keep up with scrapping them. I saw a system the other day called “Project Life”. It is quite expensive to start with but I figure that I don’t need to buy all the little bits and pieces of the kits because I have a craft room full of stuff that I can cut down to size and do myself. After a chat with a fellow blogger last night (I’m planning a special Fellow Blogger feature for her in February), I have decided to work on this and try to keep my family scrapbooks up to date (currently 5 years behind). This will entail taking photos.
I have also set the intention to put our last two holidays into photobooks ( 😳 not done that yet).
So to end this post – here are some photos from both of those holidays 🙂
