This past weekend, finally having a few hours of peace, I took some time to revist the goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year and see how I am doing at meeting them.
My primary goal this year is to take control of my photo processing workflow by using Lightroom, makings sure to tag new photos & delete the bad ones as I go. I’m doing great on this one. I may not tag them immediately as I import them, but I do tag them as I rename or edit them. All the fuzzy, too dark, and weirdly chopped photos are deleted as I go. So far so good on goal number one.
Goal number two was more commenting on blogs, layout and photos. I’ve discovered that I have to pick & choose to make this work. Last week I was good about blogs and photos but commented on no layouts, the week before that was photos and layouts but not many blogs. Goal number two still needs work but is coming along.
My last goal was to accept in my heart & mind that veggies are not just a side dish.
Maybe they are just a side dish actually.
I’ve done ok for the most part adding one veggie meal a week or at least one mostly veggie meal. These are usually frittatas with veggie filling or veggie soup and occasionally pasta with added veg, like replacing a layer of lasagna noodles with zucchini and using roasted pureed eggplant along with the tomato sauce. I have discovered a few things though. My kids will at least try most vegetables if they are raw or total mush (as in have been in a crock pot for 8 hours), but not at any cooked stage in between. They particularly hate the texture of frozen veggies that are then microwaved, except peas & corn. I get that. I have texture issues as well with food. So instead of coming up with cooked dishes I have been serving raw veggie assortments at meals, getting them used to just eating the things regularly. The few cooked vegetable dishes I make have the vegetables cooked very very soft. Goal three has not had much progress but I do have a better understanding of what I need to do to advance.
How is everyone else doing with their resolutions and goals, assuming you set any?
