The 50th Year

I recently wrote about my upcoming birthday and shared about my plan to spend a weekend away in the winter woods with my adult children. Well what I did not tell you is that while this was my idea—the whole Go North thing and play in the snow—I do not play any outdoor winter activities. In fact in recent years I have begun to say that I am a “winter observer” enjoying the white stuff from inside my comfy living room preferably with a fire roaring.

So why would I suggest such an adventure?

Well I have decided to make this year the year I “try something(or learn) new” every week. In fact I plan to take it one step further and take up the Eleanor Roosevelt challenge and try something regularly that scares me. I even bought a book that offers suggestions. I keep it on my bedside stand so that I can look upon my commitment every day when I wake and before I go to sleep. So I plan to start with some outdoor winter fun.

I have several ideas of things I hope to conquer over the year. Many of which has my favorite guy grinning from ear to ear as he gets to be my buddy in most! And I figure I will get lots of good blogging material out of it.

So that is 52 weeks of something new. Wanna join me? We can all use a little adventure in our lives, right?!
