Cereal Musings

Someone on the radio just mentioned eating Count Chocula cereal with chocolate milk. Why didn't I think of that when I was a kid? Cocoa Krispies with chocolate milk would've been so good. (Not Cocoa Pebbles, though, because I never liked those.)

I would not eat any of this now because most cereal is just way too sweet. But my childhood self definitely missed out.

Goals for 2005

My major goal for 2005 is to start a book group. I have been wanting to do this for several years but haven't done anything about it. Now I have a list of folks I want to invite and can't wait to get started. I was in two book groups when I lived in San Francisco and loved them both. Now that I have finally settled down here in New Orleans, I am determined to do this.

Another goal for 2005 is to start doing yoga again. I did it regularly for a while and I miss it. Juannie wants to start again, too, so we help each other stay motivated.

One more goal is to save up money for a vacation to the Bay Area in June. Juannie and I are good savers when we have a very defined goal like a trip. Yea! California here we come.

And I want to do more volunteer work in 2005. I usually volunteer at my local public radio station during pledge time twice a year. I think I would like to do adult literacy or ESL, too. I need to get to work on this one so it happens.

And I am steadily working on my ongoing plan to read, read, read all the books I now own before my birthday in August. I am including all the books I received for Christmas in this goal. (The book group and this goal work hand in hand, don't they? Or they could work against each other. Who am I kidding? I'll be reading like a mental patient no matter what.)
