My goals to be met by the time of my annual doctor visit in July 2015:
1. Lose 18 lbs.
2. Have a total cholesterol below 200.
3. Have a fasting blood sugar below 100.

My other goal is to improve in mind, body and spirit and I have listed 14 things to do in 2014.
1. Try kale. It's so healthy. Why haven't I done this yet? Done 2/5/14 I've tried it raw and cooked in soup and have enjoyed it both ways.
2. Snowshoe. Hopefully we'll have a warmish ...

2. Snowshoe. Hopefully we'll have a warmish winter day so I can. Done 2/14/14 Loved it!!
3. Meet a Spark Friend. Anyone else interested? I had a Spark overnighter with friends 3/7-8/14 and it was GREAT!!
4. Walk a walk/run. I was going to put 5K but I just want to start by doing one that isn't virtual. Paws for Brittany dog walk 5/10/14
5. Get a facial. It sounds like so much fun!
6. Learn Tunisian Crochet. I've crocheted for years. It's about time I broaden that skill.
7. Take an Excel class. Years ago, I took a Word class and my DH took an Excel class with the idea that we'd teach the other person what we learned. That part never happened and I am often lost in Excel which means it's just easier to let my DH do it for me. Done 4/4/14
8. Take a cooking class. Online or in a classroom -- just something to expand my skills.
9. Call or see a friend every week. I connect too much online and that just isn't the same.
10. Listen to a book on tape. It will be good to stretch my auditory skills. Done 3/19/14
11. Try seeding root vegetables in early November so they over winter. I heard about this on public radio and am curious to try it.
12. Visit a new Wisconsin town. There are still some I've never visited. Done 6/25/14 I visited Wittenburg for my first Nueske's visit.
13. Try hummus. It was easier to try new things when I worked. I could take something to work and try it. If it turned out I liked it, I could buy more. Done 1/12/14 It was okay -- just okay.
14. Find a great lipstick. Done 6/11/14

I love to read, cross stitch and crochet. I also love to do Sudoku. 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.

Sarah is the daughter of a friend, I made at my Financial Advisor's office. My friend is the assistant at that office and has helped me with bookkeeping work for the judge. Erik liked her, and will judge her driving on Friday. I pray it works out until May when she hopes to go back to graduate school.
I'm hanging by a thumbnail, windows are still not completed and have to get the painter here too. But Erik's situation took front row.
No care giver-nothing gets done around here!
Thanks for stopping to read my blog.

~~~~~~~~~~7 Lovely Logics~~~~~~~~

1) Make Peace with your Past,
So it doesn't spoil your Present.

2) What others Think of you is
None of your business.

3) Time heals Almost Everything.
Give the Time, Some Time.

4) No one is the Reason for your Happiness
Except You, yourself.

5) Don't compare your Life with others,
You have No Idea what their journey is all about.

6) Stop Thinking too much
It's Alright not to know all the Answers.

7) Smile..You don't own
All the Problems in the World.

DO these sound Logical (natural, reasonable, sensible, understandable) to you?

Have a Wonderful Week Full of Logical Days!!

Yes it's hard to keep plugging away and our slipping and sliding along the way, or crashing at the end of a wave if you wish isn't helping a lot. However if we learn from the slippery slopes or the crashes we can be ahead of the game.
Today is another busy day, lawn to mow, fruit bowl to prepare, granddaughter's birthday party to attend, and that's just the top of my today's list-well after prayers, scriptures and coffee. I've already been to Kroger's for the fruit with a cup of coffee-before Erik got up so I could have some me time.
Thanks for your encouragement when I'm dragging dear friend. I put on some weight in OH and since we got home, driving Erik around gives me less time to prepare healthy meals and Erik wants to eat out when we are out together....
