It is that time again…the time when new resolutions and goals are being stated and written everywhere. A time when one’s hopes are fresh and new beginnings bring brightness to one’s future.
So…what are my goals?
A haircut and a dentist appointment.
I believe in reachable goals. Don’t you?
It has been months since I’ve had either of these. Last summer, I think. I lost a filling sometime back then.
I do have a long-term goal. It is more elusive; at least for me. I intend to find it. My word for 2015 is ‘Joy’. More on this later.
The first day of the new year, I spent baking and sewing. How great that feels! It has been a long time. I’m not ready to share what I am sewing, but I can share what I baked.
My favorite gingerbread recipe!

It is from my favorite cookbook. The American Woman’s Cookbook, published in 1947, and given to me by my mother-in-law when I was a young bride.
A very joyful New Year to you all!
