This year I want to continue focus on creating healthy habits (or how to stay healthy without working too hard :-).... continue growing in my crafts (because I seem to be a happier person when I am making - AND learning).... slowly grow in my business ventures (because a little extra income doesn't ever hurt).... and work towards creating the life I want.
This last statement often hangs me up because I am already happy :-) Most of the time. But I don't want life to slide by me in the course of a day.... I want to choose. So I kind of visualize what I want my life to look like 10 years from now... and what I need to do to prepare for that now. today.
So..... there is my path..... and here is my wrap-up
Areas of FUN - handwork, of course!
FINISHED.. Sandcastle quilt
hanging sleeves for 3 quilted wall hangings
ASSEMBLED... churn dash 1 (photo on this post) [AND completed the extra blocks I needed to make it wider!]
WORKED ON.... Ireland sampler
|This block was TOUGH!!|
Droid Quilt Along (new - but a gift - quilt completion date - end of March) Can you guess which droid?
White log cabin
Applique wall hangings
Rainbow Scrappy Blocks
STARTED....... well - I will leave that one alone for now :-) Those projects will end up in my Feb WIP :-)
What I did NOT do is MEND a quilt.... I have a pile of my mother-in-law's quilts that need some love... I had told myself - one per month.... and I need to get to that!
prepared Lent Children's Liturgy for sale
started time sheet for internet clients
kept up with personal finances
increase exercise: USED the new treadmill... (not a lot but that's coming)
achieved the 10K steps some days (need to challenge more friends and DO it!)
stretches and daily strength (started... but need to firm up routine)
Food: moving more and more toward plant base - meat as condiment
daily salad, cut veggies, fresh fruit, smoothie (some or all)
eating out of pantry - reducing the grocery bill and wasting less
Declutter: neatened desk and kept it :-)
emptied a few boxes. I will set better (more specific) goals for February
same areas BUT
**will START with the mending basket (in my sewing goals)
**snail mail letters [small goal.... didn't get the Christmas cards out - AGAIN - so am planning on snail mail cards & letters. I never feel like sitting down and writing them.. but I see myself as an old woman who writes letters. So I need to figure this out or chuck the vision! I have all supplies ready to go - I just need to begin]
**I chose a particular declutter SPOT and will tackle it. (not limited to that area but will be satisfied with it if that is all I do!) [AND keep my desk under control]
**I will buy a particular piece of furniture (I STINK at decorating and put up with a lot of inconvenience by NOT getting what I need. ONE piece is on my list)
