Somersaults of life

An old, but Christmassy photo of Noomi.
Well, we all know that feeling - we plan a thing or things, we prepare and we feel comfortable with the goals and hopes we have put on a list for the coming year. And when it comes to the day to revaluate and look back, we just hope that we made it. Did good, checked the list totally and feel like a new person. Grown, learned and ready for new goals and hopes.

But sometimes it is just ”meh” we meet in the end of that list with goals and hopes. 

I had five small goals and even if I did all of them - painting, crafting, reading, photographing and bonding with my dolls - it still feels like I did not do a thing. I did paint, mostly journaling and some tiny canvas paintings, but I did not keep it going as I would have loved to do. I did crafting, mostly crocheting, small tiny things, shawls and boots for the dolls. Reading, yes, a book a or two. Have one going on now. So, that is good. Photography - yes, took a lot of photos during the year, but have not posted so many on Flickr or Instagram by the way. Had some good moments during the summer time, but not much after. Bonding with the dolls - not so much until late October. Just cleaned some of my MH and EAH dolls and started to make wigs and repaint the dolls’ faces. Still have a feeling to let some go, but a piece of me is listening to my hubby. "Give them a chance. It will come."

It will be some kind of rebuff on this. Or as we call it in Sweden, "bakläxa". It is time to learn that lesson again and do the homework properly. Or maybe I am just a bit harsh on myself.

Enjoy the week that is going on! It is snowing over here, a lot! But it will probably rain away, before some new snow comes.
