My goals to be met by the time of my annual doctor visit in July 2016:
1. Lose 20 lbs.
2. Have a fasting blood sugar below 100.

I also plan to accomplish these 16 things in 2016. This is my third year of doing a list and I love them. Some of the items have been on the list before. Either I didn't get to them or I like them enough to do an encore. As always, I reserve the right to change any item on the list for any reason. The goal is and will be to just do new ...

I also plan to accomplish these 16 things in 2016. This is my third year of doing a list and I love them. Some of the items have been on the list before. Either I didn't get to them or I like them enough to do an encore. As always, I reserve the right to change any item on the list for any reason. The goal is and will be to just do new things or things in a new way.

1. Have my palm read.
2. Try a new type of yoga. Yoga Nidra class started 1/19/16
3. Make a wine kit. I got one for Christmas 2014 and haven't had an opportunity to make it. I will in 2016!!
4. Take an essential oils class. 4/2/16
5. Learn enough German to read a children's book. I'll give this another opportunity on the list.
6. Pie at Norske Nook.
7. Make soap. 4/3/16 I made a kit that I had purchased from Amazon. I used a glycerin base and it was quite easy. In retrospect, I wish I had not bothered with the dye. I am hoping I did not add too much scent. It came with lavender and I used about half of the small vial.
8. Play cards at the senior center. Ours was demolished in 2015 but I found out they are meeting at the mall.
9.Tour a cranberry bog at harvest.
10. Try geocaching.
11. Take a painting class. They are offering classes now where a teacher takes you through making a picture step by step. All experience levels are acceptable. We'll see if no talent is acceptable. 2/11/16 The class was so much fun and I am amazed at what the teacher coaxed out of us.
12. Teach Tony a trick. Thank you EABL81 for the idea. It will definitely be more challenging to teach the cat than it was to teach the dogs.
13. See the Northern Lights.
14. Try adult coloring. Bought a book in January and sat down to color for the first time 2/9/16. It is relaxing.
15. Volunteer in a new way. When I imagined this one, I forgot that I would begin doing my volunteer time for Master Gardeners. I've signed up to work in two places, one is at the zoo and the other is a garden area in a parking lot. I have to complete 24 volunteer hours by the end of October and I got my first few hours 4/6/16 when I volunteered to help count seeds to make packets for the Children's Festival in late April.
16. Visit a new Wisconsin city. An oldie but a goodie.

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 30+ years. We only fur kids. Mostly we have 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.

hi! so glad you had a good pruning class--it's an invaluable skill and can be quite an art form. I have never learned to do it well--and I have the scalped trees and shrubs to prove it!

Yes, but he's pretty cute too! emoticon I'll bet that also has something to do with it.

“To get up when you are down, to fight more intensely when you are struggling;
to put in the extra effort when you are in sheer pain,
to comeback when nobody expects you to,
and to stand tall when everyone is pulling you down are what make a champion”
