This year I want to focus on:
- My Cutting Garden (which is looking fabulous, I must say, but I want to expand it so, so much!)
- Creating a large Bee/Herb garden near the house (this was going to be the dedicated potager, but I've revised my plans - this will be a very long term project).
- We've also got lots of fencing/shedding/home improvement plans on the go this year and just got our solar hot water installed a few weeks ago. Love it!
- Getting my Diploma of Permaculture sorted (I completed the certificate, but ran out of time/motivation to get the Diploma done last year).
- Do a photography course (I can muddle through o.k. with my camera and take a lot of good photos, but I'd like to understand more of the how and why).
- Take a calligraphy course (I've just always wanted to.....maybe this will be the year!)
- Get a regular blogging schedule worked out (this is probably more of a fantasy than a reality - I'm too fickle to work to a set posting format, but, it's now officially on the list I'm going to give it a go!).
- Hoddles Creek Farm blog - this is a work in progress - I have lots of stuff to flesh out, but I definitely want to spend more time developing it this year. This blog focusses on our farm: life/philosophy/projects and will be pretty image heavy. Check it out if you're interested.
- A Little Lime - I want to provide lots of fun, inspiring content for you this year - I've got lots of sticky note ideas all over my blog Idea Board just waiting to happen. I've spent today streamlining the Home page - there is now a Search feature, the blog archives can be reached via a drop down button, and I have pared my unwieldy label list down to 17 Categories (still too many, really) - this involved going through almost every post over the past 3 years, but it is done! I might even manage to get an updated photo of me up this week :)
I did actually do some drawing over the holidays - I've had a renewed interest in working in my Moleskine and Pattern Journals, here's one of the new pages from the Pattern Journal.
My holidays were also filled with cutting lots of flowers, new calves and harvesting so, so much garlic - I now have enough for everyone.........seriously!
