Weekly Goals 8 of 52

Last week was one of those weeks where you are busy all week and feel like you didn't get anything done.  I spent a lot of time thinking.. and 'wasting time'.  Even fussed at myself a little - but I know me... and I know that many times when I feel STALLED.... in writing, in chores, in many areas.... I am just on the edge of an epiphany.

And the epiphany is this - the crisis that just happened to us - is a blessing.  And I am blessed with the learning and the lessons that are coming.  I will write more about this later..... but I am sure that the coming weeks will bring much food for Lenten reflections (  as I navigate some new concepts and tasks I have never done before.

We start this Monday morning in a quiet place here.... my husband strained his leg the other day and is resting it.... we had our first snowfall last night and everything is closed.   It's kind of funny because the snow will be gone by this afternoon - and tomorrow I will take my guy to the chiropractor and pick up the threads of our weekly life.  Seriously nothing to be done here but RICE :-)

Today will be a blessed day at home.... preparing the weekly meals and getting started on a game plan for my Lenten project.  I've already been out for my mile walk with my dog..... actually more than a mile... the morning was quiet and she LOVES snow.  Knowing that the snow will be gone and there was no traffic.. I let her off her leash.... and had a bit of a romp trying to catch up with her :-)  We both got a little extra movement in this morning and I'll hop on the treadmill later on and catch another mile or so...

Anyway - my goals for the week are below:

1. Left from Last Week
