My goals for 2014 to be met by the time of my annual doctor visit in July:
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. (Actually I've only gotten to 13 so far but I'll decide on that last one eventually).
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 ...

My other goal is to improve in mind, body and spirit and I have listed 14 things to do in 2014. (Actually I've only gotten to 13 so far but I'll decide on that last one eventually).
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 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.
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.
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.

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.

Glad you can't raise your hand to volunteer for too much now. lol........So, hypothetically, if you were to contact a doctor......what do you think that doctor would say??? ha ha

I hope it's just muscles aches and pains and that gentle movement and some TLC will help it work itself out.

I hope you have a fabulous and warm weekend!! Hey, 40s and 50s sounds pretty dang warm to me, too!! :-)

JESUS (the sweetest name I know) ~

His shed blood means we can live each day in His forgiveness.

His resurrection means we can walk constantly in newness of life.

His day of victory makes all our days complete!

Praying His Very Best Is Yours this Easter Season!


For in Him we live & move & have our being. ~ Acts 17:28 NIV


There will never be another act of love
so pure or triumph
so celebrated
as the humility of the cross
& the miracle of the empty tomb.

Bonnie Jensen

Have a wonderful time of rejoicing in the Resurrection!

Janet - I know exactly how you feel , its an experience within itself to care for another individual . I am feeling as if I am on a retreat in a way - well lets see at the Corn Field there are benches to sit and relax and take in the day - DH has agreed to join us but if he is unable I am still planning on our adventure - Happy Easter - thanks for all your support - Hugs K emoticon

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It went all right. The recipe was a dud. Ended up eating salad for dinner. Which was fine by me;-)
