February, Something New

I still have quite a few of the Bloganuary prompts to work my way through, but the ones I haven’t done are those that I was struggling to write something about, so I’m not sure that I will be able to. I’ll try to finish the prompts that I have in draft form, there are only a few of those.

I do have a list of weekly prompts that I will be trying to go through, need to exercise those writing muscles! That will be something new for this year.

Another new thing that I am doing this year is polishing up my French language skills. I took French for two years in college, but then stopped because I came to Italy and started learning Italian. I couldn’t find a free online course, so I downloaded the Duo Lingo app and have been happily plowing through lessons and exercises. I’m also watching French films and mini series on Netflix with English or Italian subtitles so I can practice listening. So far I can catch one word every ten, but it’s fun.

I have hope of getting my knee back in working order, it gave out on me in late August and though much better in comparison, is still functioning at about 50%. I might be starting therapies that will at least restore enough function that I can walk normally and go up and down stairs again. I think that I will see if I’m able to do any planking, I haven’t been able to exercise since July, so I’m all wibble-wobble.

I’m sure that I’ll be adding things to my 2023 self-improvement list, there are so many things that I want to try this year.
