I got up this morning hoping to greet the first sunrise of the new year. But nature had other plans and I was met with a cold drizzling rain. I went for a walk anyway. On a whim I decided to walk down a road that I haven't been on before, and discovered that is is more picturesque than my regular route with a small abandoned cemetery by the side of the road, several old barns, two small streams, and a farm that still has cows in the pasture.
And the nice part is that the road loops back around onto the road the we live on.
Two different views of one of the old barns.
I don't have many goals for the new year beyond surviving the learning curve of my new job. If I can get through the winter with finishing my charting on time and not accidentally driving off a bridge on my way home in the dark and sleeting rain, occasionally cooking real food and vacuuming the house, I will call it good. But if there is one this I'd like to work on a bit this year, it is to be slightly more adventurous. Even if it as simple as taking a different road on my walk.
I am quite shy and not an adventurous person by nature and am realizing that because of that life can pass me by. I would hate to come to the end of my life and all I have to show for it is that I went to work each day and did a bit of house work.
What about you? Any goals for 2012?
