A milk maid’s New Year resolutions

The experts say the secret to holding true to your New Year’s resolution is to pick just one. But that’s proved quite a task for the Milk Maid this year. On my list are:

  1. I will not eat dark chocolate during times of stress.
  2. I will always hold my tongue the right way to prevent machinery breakdowns
  3. I will get plenty of rest to avoid killing myself.
  4. I will sacrifice more goats to the volcano gods.
  5. I will cultivate a moth nursery in the cheque book.
  6. I will not be a doormat for the local hooligans.
  7. I will whittle my paperwork mountain into a manageable prairie.
  8. I will accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
  9. I will sharpen my aim during times of stress.
  10. I will always remember and cherish what really counts.


Happy New Year!

  1. Great list of resolutions Marian. Happy New Year and best wishes for 2018 being a great year for you and your family.

    • Likewise, Kaye. Mine has been bumpy for sure but not the nauseating turbulence you’ve managed to navigate. Let’s hope 2018 is a little less exciting.

  2. Thank you for sharing your life with us, Marian. It has been lovely to get to know you through this blog and I am impressed that you are able to fit in writing it amongst all that you do each day. Wishing you all the best for he new year.
