|Trees in Winter - Maria A Smith|
Before I get down to setting goals for the week ahead, I thought I'd recap on things I've done in the first few days of this year.
It was back to work for me on the 2nd, and surprisingly busy. Its always hard to get going again after the holidays, a succession of lazy days, late nights and changed routines make for some adjustment to get back into the swing of things again. I'll probably be there by the end of next week!
I managed to edit another chapter of my novel, and get some good constructive feedback from the writers group. It requires changes, as I expected, and I'll get on that next week. The only other writing I did was here on the blog. I'm happy with what I've done.
I've also booked onto a half day writing workshop in a few weeks time, I'm really looking forward to it, I love learning.
I got out for a great walk in the countryside.
Fear Nothing by Dean Koontz - Read the first 4 chapters.
Took my camera out into the countryside with me, and got some lovely shots, like the one above, lots of winter trees, and sunshine!
Its been a happy first week. Now its time to set some achievable goals for the week ahead. I'm not going to overwhelm myself, instead I'm going to keep things very simple.

I'm going to try and do as many short brisk walking sessions as I can this week. I'm hoping for at least four, although anything is a bonus, I'm aiming to strengthen my lungs, and get fit again.
Those are my plans. What are you up to? New year, new project?
