Fresh New Start (and season) Hot Dog

Happy Autumnal Equinox. I celebrate by making one private goal (to be completed during the three month season), and we both get small gift.

I love doing this because it's fun and it keeps life simple. I'm not into New Year's resolution lists that are longer than a trunk of a Snuffleupagus, because I find those goals boring and stale.

For me, it's one good goal. Bang it out in three months, then start fresh again with each new equinox and solstice.

And now, I'm gonna go eat an apple, unsweetened organic peanut butter and medjool dates. Yum, yum, yum.

Wishing you all an oogie boogie special day.

    1. Thanks, Tim. It's not my drawing. It came from a puzzle that I own. Love it though. And I enjoyed reading your interview over at the other Tim's page.

      Happy Halloween.

  7. Not really goal oriented any more. One of the things about being retired. But good luck with yours. Good looking witch.

    1. No goals, ever?

      PS: Thanks. The witch isn't mine. Came from a puzzle that I have. So fun.

  9. Smaller goals always work and make one feel so much better.
    Thank You for all your kind words on my post about Watson. I am fine, cried the first week, but all is well and just catching up on work that needs to be done.

  13. Ah, I like the one small goal in three months deal.That is a great sense of accomplishment instead of those 'I'm going to lose 75 pounds this year".

  15. I love your system! Such a great idea. Happy autumn to you and your honey bunny. We've been having some pretty amazing weather, which is wonderful because we have some work to do outside. We're both exhausted but the house looks much MUCH nicer now. Can't wait to sell and get the heck out of here...hahaha :)

    1. Happy Autumn indeed. Very cool that the weather is good for you, especially when working outside.

      I can't wait to ditch our place and move either. Man alive. Long time coming.

  16. Love this idea. I actually celebrated this year by A) getting out and enjoying the day and B) baking some gingerbread and I want to incorporate more celebration, goal setting and gifts sounds delightful! I guess Disneyland can count for this year's gift ;)
