So, without further ado, here are my goals for 2016.
- Read one hundred stories (short, novella or novel). I would normally keep this figure at 75, but I’ve increased it to 100 because I am reading an anthology that I KNOW will give me at least 50 entries to the challenge. So don’t bet on it staying up at 100 – I’ll probably go back down to 75 entries for the following year.
- Finish reading the Old Testament. I will keep this goal as I have yet to complete it, and I know I will do so pretty early on in the year.
- Complete some sewing projects. I’m not sure what form these will take. They may be machine sewn, they may even be hand sewn. Time will tell.
- Complete more yarn projects. Yes. You read that correctly. Yarn. Because I don’t really distinguish between knitting and crochet as such when it comes to yarn. I have already embarked on two large projects (a blanket for my daughter/our lounge) and a tunic for myself that will both take time. I am certain there will be more. I hesitate to put this up here, really, as it’s almost assumed I will do more. I really don’t want to put a figure on it either, as some projects take a long time, others don’t.
- Begin reading through Matthew Henry’s Commentary. Though written several centuries ago, I have found this commentary to be, for the most part, a sober reflection on the Bible and it’s meaning and content. And a very useful one. I will follow a reading plan to do this, but it won’t be time-constrained, as Matthew Henry can get wordy at times. I will only begin to do this once I’ve completed reading the Old Testament.
