Each year, I put put together an annual plan (goals) with the help of the Best Year Yet Program. Some of these goals are personal, some are professional; some are home related, some are travel related — they run the gamut of life.
Part of my Best Year Yet plan each year pushes me to learn new skills. Last year, I wanted to be more creative, so I worked on a couple painting projects, like this one. This year, I have four things I want to learn how to do:
- Install a tile back splash in my kitchen
- Make pickles (with cukes from the farmers market)
- Can items from my garden (or the farmers market) for use throughout the year
- Properly decorate a cake
Finally, I want to learn how to properly decorate a cake. A good friend of mine (JLPB) does some really amazing cakes – she’s promised to make me a cake, but since I’m nearly 2000 miles away, I haven’t had a chance to get the cake. Her cakes look fantastic and while I cannot expect to match her skill level, I would like to be able to create frosting flowers or other embellishments as opposed to just throwing some sprinkles on the top.
