My goals to be met by the time of my annual doctor visit in September 2017:
1. Lose 18 lbs.
2. Have a fasting blood sugar below 100.

17 in 2017
1. Try kettlebells.
2. Read 6 books related to health.
3. Try a paczki.
4. Pie at Norske Nook.
5. Hot stone massage.
6. Play cards at the Senior Center.
7. Try an ABC Sudoku. 1/30/17 I see they also make a color Sudoku so I'll have to give that a try too. 1/30/17 Decided to try the color one right away so I could put off dusting. It was fun but I wasn't fond of the app so I think I'll just give that one up. Sudoku is addicting enough for me. I don't really need a bunch of different types.
8. Make garden art.
9. Make a button bracelet.
10. Acquaint myself with our brand new library. It opened in November 2016 and I haven't made the time to visit it yet. Got my visit in on 1/24/17. I need to participate in their adult programming more. So many interesting things going on there.
11. Try a mug cake.
12. Make 17 new recipes. January: I tried slow cooker recipes for pea soup and broccoli cheese soup which I currently make on the stove but didn't prefer either.
13. Participate in the library's Winter Reading Program.
14. Participate in the library's Book Club.
15. Complete Master Gardener Level 2 Training.
16.
17.

Personal Information:
I live in Central Wisconsin. I retired from my job as a speech therapist for a local school district in June 2008. Then I worked part time until June 2012. Now I am fully retired. I have been married for 35 years. We only have fur kids. Mostly we've owned dogs but in November 2013 we decided to give a kitty a chance. Tony is quite an experience.


Other Information:
I love to read, cross stitch and crochet. My favorite thing to do is to walk the dogs. My husband was diagnosed with celiac disease in January 2011 so we have had to change the way we cook and eat. For the most part, it has been a positive change. He has other health problems that limit his mobility so I care for him as needed. I also share the care for my aging father and my stepmother who has dementia.

    Maybe a bit of latitude involved, but also mark it down to our crazy winter again this year. Only about 6 inches of snow so far and 50 - 60 degree weeks inter-dispersed with some unseasonably cold ones. We've been on a real seesaw temperature-wise this season. I measured our soil temperature yesterday, and it's already 55 degrees! The baby kale we planted last fall is still producing (albeit slowly), so we each picked a small handful to take home. I put mine in a frittata for lunch. Next week, we're planning to put in some more greens (probably lettuce and spinach) under row covers.

    I also saw a bright male bluebird checking out a nest box yesterday, and heard another already singing his heart out in the woods. My dogwood, maple and azaleas are budding out, and we're predicted to have highs in the 70's for four out of the next 7 days. Globally, eleven of the warmest years on record have occurred since 2005. But hey, everybody knows climate change is just a hoax, right? emoticon

    Libraries are definitely awesome. When I retired from my full-time job in 2015, I worked at our local library for a year. I enjoyed getting to know the residents (well, the ones who liked to read or use the computers). Libraries are special places for me. It's just exciting to know that there are worlds there waiting...
