Make it an Adventure!

It’s a new year and everyone is making resolutions. I suck at resolutions. I mean well but things just never seem to work out. So, I was looking on Pinterest and they have this board called New Thing to Try in 2015.

Somehow that made more sense or maybe it’s the wording. It just sounds more adventuresome and a lot more fun than You’re fat, Duffy, resolve to lose weight!

The first thing I’m going to try that’s new in 2015 is learning Italian! I’m off to Italy to discover my Italian Roots as grandpa Angelo was from Bisaccia, a tiny town just southeast of Naples. To try and not offend my relatives I thought it would be nice to try and speak the language. (though with my ability to learn foreign languages it might not work out that way) But at least I’ll try.

I’m also going to start doing Zumba more before this poor old body of mine completely falls apart. And the new thing for me is to start lifting weights! Picture me as Hercules by December. See, an adventure!

I’m going to try the fish oil routine as my eyes are failing and I guess fish have much better eyes. And I’m going to write three pages a day come hell or high-water. I need to get organized. Trust me, this is indeed a new and adventuresome path for Duffy Brown.

So there you have it, my new things to try in 2015. Do you have any adventures you’re taking on? Hopefully something fun and exciting and that will not make you look like Hercules.

Hugs and Happy 2015!

Duffy---You make me laugh. I loved Geared for the Grave because there was so much humor in it and you really threw red herrings all over the place. DID NOT guess whodunit! I agree with you about learning new languages and I can't do Zumba because my knee went out in May. I've used fish oil for years, and only cataract surgery on both eyes improved my eye sight. Still, maybe all those things will happen for you. Happy New Year.

Duffy - Great that you will try all the new things ----and I know you will succeed at every one. But please, do not stop writing just as you do. Terrific - funny - terrific.

I agree with you when it comes to resolutions - over the years it has taken on such a negative connotation because so many people talk about breaking them right away, so instead I come up with goals I want to achieve. My biggest goal for 2015 is to focus on myself - to take care of my mental/emotional/physical health through learning to eat better and exercise, professionally I need to make changes in my career life and focus on my writing, taking building my writing platform more seriously. I'm new to this blog and I look forward to being a part of what you have to offer and checking out your cozy mysteries.

Hi, Jocelyn. Wow, I will do that. My eyes are getting to be a real problem.
Thanks for the info.

It’s going to be a crazy year with two weddings in the mix. Think I’ll start taking those vitamins. Have a wonderful 2015!

Hi, Annette. Writing is my life, it’s what keeps me going…that and chatting with you all. I’d be lost without you. Have a terrific 2015!

Hi Michelle. Yes!!! Taking care of yourself is the most important thing of all. My SIL once said that if you don’t take care of yourself who will? I wish you much success in your career and 2015. Welcome to the Cozy Chicks. So happy to see you here. Keep me posted how things go for you this year. Hugs, Duffy
