13) make tiramisu

        2) I think I accomplished this.
        3) Very wise.
        4) Maybe…
        5) I have been walking a few evenings a week – definitely a good idea.
        6) Contentment, so important but so hard.
        7) Many, many years ago I ate a fresh fig. I should do it again.
        8) Nope. I have given up on the idea of painting. (“Be Margaret.”)
        9) I need to do this as well.
        10) I could use more hand holding in my life.
        11) Yes! Maybe I should start poetry teatime.
        12) More wise words.
        13) It has been many years since I made one of these. Mmm.
        14) This will be crucial when you move to the South!
        15) What I need to do is make my brain sit still.
        16) Ha! I am a terrible vacuumer.
        17) Oh yes, I should take this advice too.
        18) Drink more water is part of every resolution I’ve ever made. I’m actually doing quite well lately.

        20) Knock knock jokes? Thankfully my kids haven’t reached that stage yet.
        21) So, so hard. But I did freeze spinach/kale ice cubes to throw into smoothies.
        22) Good one. I never do this.
        23) I should learn patience with the internet and/or just get offline more often!
        24) I love the way you put that.
        25) I’m trying to let go. How about growing vegetables and painting walls for starters?


        1. I gave my mouse a workout scrolling up and down while reading your comments. haha. Of everything I could add, I’ll just say this: every time I vacuum, I am so satisfied that I vow to do it weekly from then on; repeat several weeks later.
