Many people find that the beginning of a new year is a clean slate and the time to start new habits, attitudes, or behaviours. I don't make "resolutions" in the classic sense, but I like to use this time to start something new.

My word for 2020 is "flexible"...instead of being trapped by my routines, I'll be open to necessary changes in routine....and I'll be open to the exercise to make my body more flexible.

I've made a list of 20 for 2020---projects and changes I want to make for the new year--some are fun and involve knitting, some are tedious like clutter clearing, and some are physical like spreading four yards of bark in my yard in the spring.

    This is a shot in the dark:

    Does anyone know someone who can make a cross stitch pattern? I know what I want it to say, but I have no idea how to make a pattern and all I could find online was an already-made placque. I would think it would mean more if I made it.

    Rori - with how many hints I've dropped ("I'm seriously thinking about getting a roomba. It would be such a help with the cats") I would think I would get it ("maybe when Jess comes back for Easter I can try her Roomba") Do ya think I've been subtle enough????? How long were you out of commission with the trigger finger surgery?

    Happy New Year everyone!

    :)MIchele, If you want a Roomba, just go buy one for yourself.

    I'm dropping hints for gifts for me. I can live without it,
