(As I posted HERE, I am going to "report in" on my resolution progress each work for the entire year. I had six areas (the seventh was doing this reporting) to which I wanted to give special attention. Posting about it keeps me accountable, which I find very helpful. I hope you don't mind!)
Area 1: Weight
No loss this week.
Area 2: Family
My son's birthday is coming up next week. In our family, the birthday person gets to choose their favorite foods for breakfast, lunch, AND supper. Guess what we're having for breakfast next Tuesday? Ice cream. Well, at least there's milk in it!
Area 3: Schedule
Winter will be over soon (I hope). This winter we have heated almost exclusively with wood. When I get up in the mornings, I go downstairs to start the fire. Since that takes more than flipping a switch, I decided to do my devotional reading while I'm monitoring the fire. It has been great to start the day with two such rewarding activities!
Area 4: Chassis Maintenance
I have discovered the benefits of an old, old standard: Ponds Cold Cream. It gently cleans and moisturizes my poor rosacea beleaguered skin. My skin is SO soft, even the next morning. It's also inexpensive!
Area 5: Debt
I'm getting close to another milestone percentage. It's slow, but it's happening!
Area 6: Garden
I've got my seeds, my starting soil, and my planting pots. We also have a mini-greenhouse that I picked up at Kinney Drugs a few years ago. This week we'll be having a combination homeschool lesson/planting session.
