I love to make lists. These are actually 2 older lists that were sitting on my desk. I seem to always have several going at the same time. There are small pads of paper all over the house. I'm not the best housekeeper, so very often they will be found under furniture, in piles and other places that they get lost in.
With the New Year coming, the lists start to take on the form of goals for the year. I've given up on formal resolutions, instead I make lists of things I'd like to accomplish over the year. If few of those things get done, then I've been successful. As you might imagine, many of those goals have to do with gardening and the other things I do to simplify our lives.
I find the more that we pull away from the life that we once led, the longer my lists get. It is funny that we call it simplifying. I find it so amazing that these things were commonplace not so very long ago, and still are in many cultures around the world. How did we go so far in such a short period of time? Now it's considered strange to try to simplify.
I'll be posting lots of those lists in the coming weeks. I'm thinking that many of my goals will be placed in the side bar to keep better track of. That should keep me honest. Since there are lots of categories in my lists as well, I'll probably do separate posts on many of them. How is your list making coming?
