This is my Photo Friday entry. Each week Photo Friday posts a photo assignment. Your mission is the creative interpretation of the week's theme. This week's theme is "Square". For more Photo Friday entries visit: http://www.photofriday.com/
Now I know this door is rectangle in shape but I had taken it with the focus on the chickens so it makes the shape of a square. In this photo, they were not so sure about the white stuff on the ground. The ducks were in heaven though. I will share those photos later.
On a side note, here are my New Years Resolutions:
1. Stay in touch with my family and friends more frequently. The loss of my brother will hopefully bring us closer together.
2. Post on my blog at least five days a week. I have so much I want to share with you all.
3. Make more time for myself. I would like to meditate at least ten minutes a day. My goal is that by the end of 2010 I will be up to thirty minutes twice daily.
4. I know it is redundant, but I want to lose some weight. I am tired of this baby fat that is hanging on. My youngest is nine so it is time to say goodbye. This entails more walking, exercise, better food choices and less time messing around on Facebook, Pogo or many of my other Internet hangouts.
5. Lead a more spiritual life. I have been neglecting my ritual and prayer time. I am hoping to integrate this around my meditation time.
6. Spend more time playing with my children. It is easy to become busy and distracted in the adult world but a child's world is simple and full of wonder. We have had a foot of snow fall already today so look for snow fort, snowman and snowball photos tomorrow.
7. Spend more alone time with the love of my life. My husband means the world to me. I want to make time for date nights even if it is just the two of us, a movie rental and popcorn.
8. Take a class on photography. I am a pretty good shutterbug but when I get my new digital SLR camera I want to take my photos to a whole new level.
So these are my resolutions for 2010. I am remaining realistic in my goals. Resolutions are much easier to keep if you keep in mind your limitations and what you are willing to sacrifice. A lot of mine involve time. This means I am going to have to set some sort of schedule and keep it. That will be the hardest part. However, humans seem to get into habits fairly easy so it is just a matter of getting into the habit of making time. What are your resolutions for 2010?
