New Beginnings

Happy New Year 2022! What do you have planned? What life journeys will you take this year?

I will soon be 71yo. I plan to stretch myself in my painting, selling and traveling/hiking. As an acrylic painter, I hope to learn more about stretching my skills in seascapes, misty scenes and overall professionalism. I participated in my first art/craft fair in December 2021. I hope to register for several in 2022. However, they take a lot of work, so I plan not to go crazy and only to register for a handful, possibly. I purchased a new van in 2021. It is now a large enough vehicle that will carry my gear for hiking/camping, my PAW and that will allow me to stretch out and sleep on the road, when needed. My goals are pretty simple. I’ve lost 32lbs in the last 5 months. I plan to lose 30 more in 2022. How? I cut out sugar, snacks, processed foods and limited salt. Over the holidays, I only gained 3 pounds. I’ve lost one of those already. I also try to walk everyday for at least 45-60 minutes. I also try to get up and move more often during the day.

For Christmas, one of my sons and his wife bought me my art fair 4-sided 10×10 tent. It’s a bit cumbersome, but I can manage it for now. I’m looking forward to figuring how to hang my paintings in a way that only requires hangers and not extra panels for hanging. I’m super happy about this tent. It is quite sturdy and the fabric top and walls are sun and rain proof.

I have been happy, peaceful and content this year. I’m hoping that 2022 will bring the same.
Many, many blessings to my readers for 2022. May you enjoy your journeys and your life.
