Kicking off the New Year with ice castles—and resolutions!


Dad surprised the family with tickets to the Edmonton Ice Castles for tonight—it’s the first time the castles have come to Canada and if you’ve looked at any of the pictures, you’ll probably agree it looks AMAZING. I’m excited to take out my camera.

Speaking of that, “Take more pictures” is on my (short) list of New Year’s Resolutions. This year, follow my Instagram (@SupermanDuffy) for my photo adventures. Maybe you’ll be inspired to take (and share) pictures of your own! <grin> I’ll be sure to post some pics from the ice castles this week.

Also on my resolution list this year:

Write more letters. I have friends across the country (and even some from around the world) and instead of just emailing, I am going to try and write at least one letter a month. It’s the perfect way to start Letter Writing Week on Sunday. 

Read more books. I know, this is always on my list, but I failed miserably at my reading last year. In 2016, I pledge to read at least 25 books, starting with a Science Fiction book to kick off Science Fiction Day tomorrow. Check my Facebook page to see what book I selected!

Start a new hobby. My mom says hobbies are important for personal growth (or something like that)—so I am going to spend the next week or so coming up with a new hobby. Something that won’t take too much time, but something really different. Any ideas?

I have some other resolutions too—like helping mom around the house more, spending more time with my sister, beating my personal running best, and writing at least three short stories in 2016.

What are your New Year’s Resolutions?  

Gotta jet! Have a great day and a wonderful 2016!
