Rosemary Bread

It's been really cold here, and actually it appears the whole United States is really cold this week. So, that has led to more baking around here. The Boy and I tried out a new recipe yesterday. It came out delicious and was really easy. This is the recipe we used. By the way, the fresh rosemary I used is a potted plant I have had for a year now. It is one of the easiest plants I've owned.

That's the first thing the Boy said when we finished putting this 3-D puzzle together. I can honestly say, I needed better directions than the one that came with this. Luckily, the Boy doesn't take after me in that respect. He figured it out right away, and we worked it out. He hasn't decided about painting it yet. I think the Boy and I are going to pick out some more to stow away for other days.

I'm not even going to try to list any resolutions here. Mainly because I've learned that I don't stick to them. I'm more likely to stick to something if I don't write it anywhere. I think it's a mental block.

There are some things I would like to do more this year though. It plays right into my previous entry. I want to spend more time at the beach. For some reason, we rarely go to the beach. I used to blame it on the bath water feel to the ocean this far south, but now I am thinking maybe that isn't the reason.

I'd also like to take my yoga a bit more seriously. Again, not really sure why I keep putting things off that I love so much.

And, for instant gratification, I would like to change the color of my living room. Actually, since our house has such an open floor plan, that would mean painting almost my entire living space.

Most important, I want to not let life move too quickly. I don't want to miss any of the moments with the Boy and the Husband. I need to just enjoy the moment more. I'm shocked how quickly life passes by.

Happy New Year! May you all have a wonderful 2009.
