Thirteen for '13

If you know me, you know that I love lists.  Grocery lists, reading lists, lists of things to plant, pack or do.  If it's a list, it's my friend.  Add a new year into the mix, and you get a list of things to do for that new year!  So, with some items serious, some lighthearted, I present to you Thirteen for '13:
  1. Cook meals more often (enough of the salad, already.).
  2. Paint and draw more, and work on hand lettering.
  3. Read or finish: 
    • Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
    • How the Gospel Brings Us All the Way Home by Derek Thomas - Done!
    • This Momentary Marriage by John Piper
    • When Sinners Say I Do by Dave Harvey
    • Walden by Henry David Thoreau - Done!
    • The Seasons of America Past by Eric Sloane - Done!
    • Art and the Bible by Francis Schaffer - Done!
  4. Memorize Ephesians 3-6.
  5. Run a 5k and a 10k.
  6. Learn to tell the weather beyond "look, it's sunny outside!" or "it's raining" with the help of another Eric Sloane book.
  7. Learn 3 new songs on the dulcimer each month (with chords!).
  8. Study 1 and 2 Corinthians.
  9. Finish up that Plant Science minor, and find an accounting internship for the fall summer.
  10. Get up between 5:00 and 5:30 AM every day (hey, if you shoot for the moon, you'll land in the stars, right?), and therefore, get more done.  I'm most productive in the mornings, and don't mind going to bed early.  I'll start at 5:00 and see how realistic that is.  You're probably laughing already.
  11. Preserve raspberry jam
  12. Remove clutter like extra clothes, sewing and art supplies, papers, computer files, etc., and keep it out.
  13. Take more photos!

What are some of your goals for the year?
