Six Things on Saturday

Trying to find a rhythm and routine for writing, so I figured I could manage to find six things to write about each Saturday. On my mind today:
1) Photo-A-Day
I've been doing a pretty decent job this year of capturing a photo each day. I have simplified my approach this year and I'm just capturing the date rather than try to be too elaborate. Here are a couple of my favorites...

Theresa and I on New Year's Day. OK, technically it was New Year's Eve, but it was after midnight so it still counts! I have never felt such a sense of relief and joy at the turning of the new year!

The newest addition to our family. Alex is in love. The verdict is out for me, although I do love using the DVD player.

Really, who could resist this face?

2) Knitting... I've picked up this hobby again and finished a project that I started almost two years ago! It's pretty exciting to see something done. I can see that it would be a pretty relaxing hobby, although so far I have to concentrate too hard to call it completely relaxing.
3) 2010 is off to a great start. So far, so good. Much calmer than the year ended. I hope for it to continue that way.
4) American Idol has started! I love it!
5) I've been working up to more creativity. Looking forward to spending some quality time in my workroom. Results to come.
6) It feels pretty good to have a post done! Have a great weekend!

So much talk about how to pronounce the new year... I love it. I think it's entertaining.

My brother-in-law passed along a link to this video. It moved me. It made me think. And, in this season of goals and resolutions, it seems somehow fitting.
