“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether this happens at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps on learning not only remains young, but becomes constantly more valuable regardless of physical capacity.” ~Harvey Ullman
In my final post about focus for the new year, I wanted to share a list of projects I’d like to try in the coming months. I was inspired by Crystal’s post on 12 Do-It-Yourself Projects I Plan to Attempt in 2011 and hope to learn some new skills (and probably attempt a few things that I will never repeat!).
January: Cook homemade spaghetti sauce (Got a recipe to share for this one?)
February: Post a vlog
March: Make homemade doughnuts
April: Plant a container garden with cherry tomatoes and cucumbers (I tried the tomatoes a couple of years ago, but hope to do better with them this time.)
May: Learn how to play chess
June: Select a song and learn to play it well on the piano (I have basic musical knowledge, but very rarely sit down and use the piano.)
July: Read my digital camera manual, along with a couple of photography books or blogs, and learn to take better photos
August: Make my own yogurt
September: Bake homemade bagels
October: Publish an e-book
November/December: Knit scarves for my daughters’ dolls. (Yes – it may take two months, considering my lack of skill at any handiwork!)
What’s something new you’d like to try in 2011?
