Such a beautiful birthday morning here on the hill! This morning, bright and early, I rolled out of bed and drove down into that fog to pour buckets of sweat. Those sweaty moments are great for reflection, too, and so it had me thinking about my list from last year. It’s not a To-Do, just a way to think on where I’ve been, where I am, and where I (think) I’d like to go. Things change, as they should.
So that list. I’ve met some goals (and then some!) and others have fallen by the wayside. But I like the idea of putting goals out there, so here’s a new list!

*Run a 5K each month of the year. I’ve done this month, and have plans for October, November and December. Now to find more winter runs in the New Year!

*Make more time for sewing. For myself. For my kids. And definitely for my Etsy shop!!

*Get organized. I realize that’s a huge, vague goal. But with boxes still unpacked in this new home of ours, anything will help. Help!

*Eat Clean.

*Still need to work on daily lotion and daily flossing. Must take care of this body!

*Breath deep. Stay mindful. Practice more meditation. Again, a life long goal with limitless improvement.

*Say yes to friends more. It’s been a tense few years with our noses to the grindstone. And there is always more work to do. But we can say no and work our lives away inside our 4 walls forever, but it will be no fun without friends. Must remember to say “Yes!”

*Work on improving my photography and post-processing skills. And maybe try to sell myself more!

Thank you all for the lovely birthday wishes, and for keeping me on track!
