My word, er...phrase for the New Year

Happy New Year!
Although January is my least favorite time of year, I always look forward to the new year. Feels like a clean slate, ya know? And although I don't really do resolutions, I do like the idea of having a word for the new year. For 2012, I have a phrase:
be intentional
Intentional is defined as done deliberately.
And that is my goal for the year, to have a purpose to my days, to be intentional in how I approach life. I don't want to float along letting whatever happens happen.
Also, for 2012, I am going to participate in 365 - taking a photo a day for a whole year! I will be posting the photos at the end of each month. My goal is to document the day to day happenings of my family's life, and to practice shooting in Manual on my DSLR. Ultimately, hopefully becoming a better photographer!
And on a different note, look what showed up at our door yesterday evening:
He has no collar or tag! Part of our fence is broken and he ended up on the patio. Stephen put out an old pillow and some blankets and he stayed all night. We've asked around the neighborhood, and checked for signs at the local stores, but no one is looking for him here. He looks well cared for. We brought him in this afternoon and bathed him. He is going to sleep in the house tonight because it is supposed to get into the 20s. Poor little fella. Hope we find his owners.

Good for you for taking him in. He has found somebody to take care of him right now until you find his family. Dachshunds are my favorite and I would have done the same thing.
Way to go...
