2011 The Year of Elva

Through out my life many people have commented on my name. Elva. What  comes next is always the same, "Where does it come from?" Well, my friends, I have always been told that it is Swedish, and that it means "11"  That is why this year 2011, is mine year. So I asked myself, How can I really make this year, Mine!?!? The first thing that came to mind is my New Year's Resolutions. This is the year that I will cross them off my to do list with a sense of accomplishment.

Step number, Share. (For the record this part really makes me nervous)

Goal #1 Lose Weight, now I know what your thinking Boring!!! That's the same as everyone else, well I'm doing it for me not them so hush. According to the BMI charts that I have read I am within my normal BMI but I am on the heavier end of the scale. My goal get to the middle of the "wonderful" chart.

Goal #2 Finish Knitting that Baby Sweater that I started over a year ago. I loving knitting, I really do! But for some reason I always put it off. Not this year, this is the year that I finish the projects that I start. I have a friend who also has a desire to knit as well. I'm hoping that we can team up and  have joyful knitting dates! I can see it now, knit one purl two........

Goal #3 Take my Grade One Piano test. I took piano all through out my childhood and yet I never  made it to Grade One Piano...........sad

This is the year I really focus on improving myself.
In the Words of Dr. Seuss "You're off to Great Places! Today is your day!Your mountain is waiting, So... get on your way!" (Oh, the Places You'll Go!)
