Monday Musings

A belated Happy New Year to you!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and am looking forward to 2011.

I am going to enjoy 2011. Why?  In October of this year I will be 50 years old and I plan on celebrating being 50 from now until my birthday and then right through my 50th year.

The celebration starts with changes in my blog.  I will be having themed posts throughout the week around different parts of like around Coffee Time Stitches.  I won't be posting every day, but I do hope to get into a more consistent posting schedule than I have been.  The posts will be:
  • Monday Musings - A collection of thoughts about life around Coffee Time
  • Toddler Tuesdays - Highlights of Mr. E and the smiles he shares with us
  • Wednesday Works - Highlights of projects in the Coffee Time studio
  • Fourth Day Food - What's cooking in the Coffee Time kitchen  (I tried and tried to come up with a food-related word that begins with TH but had no luck.  Do you know one?)
  • Friday Fifty - What I'm doing to celebrate turning 50
  • Weekend Wonders - The place for any topic that doesn't fit into one of the above.
I have set two goals to accomplish this year:
  1. I will finish at least 25 projects.  These can be current UFOs or new projects.  They can be sewn, crocheted, embroidered or a paper craft project.
  2. I will try at least 25 new recipes.  A new cupcake recipe, a new main course or maybe a new dessert recipe.
I have a few other plans for celebrating being 50 and I'll share them throughout the year.

I hope you continue to read Coffee Time Stitches and comment from time to time.  I love to hear from my readers.

Sweet P
