I have a few New Year’s resolutions.  I want to be better and do better… you know, easy stuff like that.  Do you have resolutions?  Be faster and stronger and cuter and smarter?  Cut down on the sugar?  Take Joy the Baker’s blog out of your feed?

Now waaaaaait a minute… before we do anything too brash.. I have a few New Year’s Resolution suggestions you might like to take into account.

Maybe you want to resolve to see more sky in 2011.  That could be nice.

Maybe you want to resolve to drink wine where they make wine.

Resolve to find happiness in potatoes and eggs.

Read some books.  Drink some booze. Make friends.  Eat butter.  Enjoy cookies.

This is part of my resolution.  To be sure.

Watch people who are in love say nice things to each other, exchange rings and kiss.  Weddings.  Also… eat cake.

And if you’ve resolved to eat more salad… do it with your Dad at a salad bar.   Don’t skip the ranch dressing.

Happy New Year to you!  May this new year bring you all sorts of good things and happy surprises.
