Thinking about:
Pondering my career and what I want to do with it. I’m thinking about a master’s degree but a traditional MBA doesn’t interest me enough to spend years of work on it. So what other subjects would hook my interest enough to complete a degree?

Inputs:
Reading more mysteries and thrillers to balance the business nonfiction books. I’ve always been a voracious reader, my parents used to drop me and my sister off in Ipswich County Library on Saturday mornings while they did the grocery shopping and we could take six books home a week.

Craft and creating:
Carving wooden spoons is a new craft to me, and I love it! I’m a responsible adult who can be trusted with knives, gouges, and rasps. An hour of sandpapering can transform a piece of wood from a rough-cut chunk into a smooth spoon ready for finishing. I’ve always loved wood and the curves and shapes of spoons.

Knitting is a safer travel project, and I plan to avoid buying yarn in the first six months of the year to use up some of my stash. Still weaving on a rigid-heddle loom and experimenting with using a pick-up stick to add texture.
