Resolutions, New Year’s or Otherwise

Some upcoming changes are going to allow me an opportunity to implement some changes I’ve wanted to try out for a while. Their timing with New Year’s is just coincidental.

  • Make it a habit to walk or bike to work at least three days a week
  • Grow food plants (I’ll be limited to a patio)
  • Learn to make cheese (as opposed to Cheez)
  • Reduce my overall foot print (own less crap)
  • Get that template Pip keeps suggesting and write that thing for those people
  • Finish Don Quixote and be free of the Marquis de Cervantes

    I’m about a third of the way through the second volume of Don Quixote myself. I’m taking a little break though and reading a few other books before I go back to it. These little breaks are what made the first volume take so many months to finish, though, so I should really make a comparable resolution. 🙂

    Wow, you’re doing well. I’ve only just finished Grisóstomo’s funeral, including Marcella’s speech. Following up the footnotes and obscure (to me) references, it eats my brain.

    I’ve got some experience doing organic and square-foot gardening, as well as regular old, non-commercial farming. I’ve got some books over here on the subject, too.

    Fresh cheese (like cream cheese) isn’t that hard to make, but I haven’t tried anything that requires aging. It’s mostly just separating the curds and then straining out the whey. Then processing it in the fashion that you’d like.

    Tomatoes, peppers, herbs, leafy green veggies, carrots, radishes, blueberries and mini fruit trees all do well in pots. I have grown all but the mini fruit trees… mine are in the yard.

    Heh, I think I started reading sometime in 2005, so I’m not actually doing all that well. But it’s in Spanish, so I cut myself some slack. 🙂 There are pretty extensive footnotes in my version, which is helpful for the old words and references. But when I find a word that isn’t in the footnotes, it isn’t in my Spanish-English dictionary either. *rolls eyes*

    Ah, I’m totally cheating compared to your… English version with collegiate footnotes. 🙂

    Thanks for the advice and information, Implementor and Raven. I’ll be sure to keep your posted as I get my growing plan together and ask for more feedback.

    Heh, I bet you have better comprehension though. I feel like I’m missing a lot of the humor.
