Happy New Year!

It's hard to believe we're already 7 days into 2010! Hope the year has gotten off to a good start for you.

My apologies for the lack of words around here, but we're laying low, working on various projects and trying to stay warm. I've been knitting day and night, trying to get many bags made so I can start up my Etsy shop by the end of the month. My goal this week is to get 4 bags knitted and I think I'm going to make it. Might even manage five! Then next week, felting and on to more bags, perhaps some new patterns that I've been trying to work out in my head. Sales have been pretty much nonexistent at the shop which is frustrating, but hey, that's retail for you. Hoping Etsy gets things moving a little bit as cash is getting tight around here. If only I could convince the cats to go out and get jobs. But no, they would rather nap all day. Alas.

As for things I want to accomplish in the new year, I still haven't even written them down! But they've been floating around in my head for weeks. One of them is that no matter how obsessed with knitting I am, I have to try to get out of the house at least once a week to do something that is not work or errand related. This week's outing was taking two of my nieces and their friend to lunch. They drove up from Albuquerque to visit before heading back to college and while we didn't do a whole lot, it was great to see them. They are just so hilarious. We had lunch at Second Street Brewery and then they all played Wii games while I sat back and watched. Very entertaining. No, really, it was. I wish I could see all the nieces and nephews more often.

Another thing I'd like to get done is the scanning of the album of old photos that my aunt lent to me two summers ago. Scanning is not my favorite thing to do, but I've been trying to dedicate an hour to it every evening. I've been pretty good about it except for this evening. I am writing this instead. I just don't feel up to scanning. I don't know why I dislike scanning so much. Perhaps if my scanner wasn't always full of dust and hair, it wouldn't be as annoying.

This weekend will find me knitting more and watching the Wild Card games. The Steelers may be done, but we keep watching until the very end. I guess I'm rooting for an NFC win this year. Go Saints! (But I'd be okay with a Vikings or Cowboys win as well. And don't tell my dad about me rooting for the Saints!)
