Hi... today hubby was hauling bales from a neighbor so I had most of the day to myself, that's a change..
I was busy working on my habits, new and old..water, vitamins, got back on my x-bike, it's been awhile...some of the challenges I'm doing for May is a toned arm challenge with weights, a plank challenge, a squat challenge and an ab challenge..
While I ride my bike I like to read and listen to music and drink water...on the spiritual side I've started reading the 31 Proverbs over the next 31 days. I was also reading in a book about life is a house with 4 rooms..physical, emotional, mental and spiritual and to have a balanced life you have to go into each room every day...
I worked on my May journal..getting it all set up for the month..did some laundry, cleaned up more cat throw up..this time on the rug by the bed and not in bed with me!! I also have for one of my habits I'm working on to stop procrastinating ..so I've been doing a few catch up jobs that have been nagging me..the cutlery drawer in the kitchen needed painting and I have put it off for years..now it's done woohoo..I also bought some cork squares to hang inside a cupboard door for lists, recipes and inspiration that I finally put up today too.
I spent some time outside too..I quadded the herd morning and evening and did some clean up jobs in the yard, and check cows to calve..we had one more calf today so now we have 9 left..woo hoo single digits..I'll celebrate that :)
Back in the house I did more laundry, some housework, started a few more seeds, made a rhubarb crisp..visited on the phone with my son ..found out his girlfriend's Birthday is in May too!!
Lots of Birthday's today..some friends on facebook that I wished Happy Birthday to. It was also one of my Grandma's birthdays..when she passed away all the grandkids got a fancy china tea cup..the one given to me has lily of the valley..May's flower on it since we shared May Birthdays..I think I may make a cup of lemon tea in my fancy cup to celebrate my favorite Grandma..she died when I was 9 but she still remains my favorite!!
I love how when my focus is on Celebrate and habits I find articles everywhere...I even received an e-mail called 55 free ways to celebrate your birthday (and I'm going to be 55) It was from the ALL You Magazine..and an offer to buy a book about habits!! right full of quotes..and you know how I love quotes :)

May 2..lots of friends birthdays and National day of Prayer
