And she made promisesThat she could never ever keep
January is a time for goal setting. It is a time of pondering; new beginnings, improving any and all things that come to mind, accomplishing unobtainable objectives within ludicrous time limitations. It’s a time of resolution.
I gave up resolutions a while back. Although my intentions were always good, my actions seldom reflected what I wished to achieve. I started strong with energy and determination. Within a few weeks I had succumbed to the easier route, the no effort routines of which I was accustomed.
Choosing a word for the year made more sense to me. I like words that I describe as ‘all-encompassing’. What I mean by that is that they may be used in different ways. I like words that are nouns and verbs. I like words that can even be adjectives if needed. Last year my word was ‘Stop’. Someone asked me why I’d choose a word like that and there were many reasons, none of which I felt like sharing.
This year my word is ‘Act’. Dictionary says take action; do something, behave in the way specified, a thing done; a deed, a pretense. Fairly broad in content, but it captures my state of being for now.
And she made promises
But they were all just lies
The messy-bun hat, pony tail hat, hat without a top craze, whatever you might call it, hit here at home as well as everywhere on the internet. It started when some innocent girl posted a picture she had seen on FB and stated she wished she knew how to make one. I got the picture numerous times asking if I could make one. It’s a hat without the top few rows, so yes, I can make them. The girl who actually created the hat apparently saw the craze her picture started and vicious yarnies came out of the woodwork. They practically crucified the admirer of the original picture, accusing her of plagiarism, etc. Lesson learned: Beware of people who play with string and pointy sticks.

|I told you I've made a bunch. I have many more.|
Disappointment runs deep
