emoticon I have days I crave water and days I can barely drink it. Thankfully most days I'm ok. I change it up a lot - sometimes ice water, room temperature and when it's cold hot water. Sometimes when I can't drink it plain I make ice tea - better than not drinking. So emoticon on your ongoing challenge and accomplishment with it. I call it a success and who knows you may learn to love it... emoticon Have a great day!

This is not really a project completed - because it is an ongoing goal,
I have always had a hard time drinking water - but decided i was just going to do it!
So for a couple of months now have drank at least 4 glasses of water EVERY day -
and, WOW, that is an accomplishment for me - i just do not like water.
One day i actually drank 7 glasses - told my son i felt like i was going to drown -

I got past another section in the big video game Tomb Raider Anniversary - but there's a long way to go yet before any bragging begins.
What I can say yippee I did it to is finish reading "Olive Kitteridge" by Elizabeth Strout a Pulitzer Prize Novel & it is easy to see why- excellent!

I have completed reading a book called 'The Poet's Wives' by Davis Park - I really enjoyed it - it is three separate stories about widows of poets.

I have also knitted a little cosy for my 2-cup cafetiere - but not sewn it up yet as I am at friend's house and can't find a needle! I've started knitting another one though - experimenting with a different pattern. I need a cafetiere cosy like a hole in the head - but it's something to do!

This YIPPEE is in celebration of me saying NO! . . . twice this week.

In doing so, it will free up some time to do the things that I like to do, rather than being busy with stressful stuff that makes me want mindlessly.

Okay, I've finished the novels . . . had to order the first 3 of the series from Amazon because they're not available at my library and I can't find 'em anywhere else.

And REALLY EXCITED because the owners of a local shop checked out my jewelry projects this morning, and they loved them! And they want all I've already completed for their shop's grand opening at the end of the month!!!! Woohoo!

Karen, you finished a novel in 3 days? Way to go!

I didn't check in on your blog (or with the team) all weekend so I must have missed the coloring project.....

This week, my crafting plans include
#1 designing with copper wire (latest project - Cats);
#2 Steampunk necklaces
#3 learning to coil wire, etc.

In water color class, we're starting a new painting of an old barn in a field of flowers.

Next stop to catch up on blogs . . . and beading link . . . oh geez.... Looks like I missed lots of fun stuff!

emoticon to everyone! I have to say "Yippee" for finally finishing the wallpapering in our dining room! We started around the first of December and it took us this long because of the long, bitterly cold Winter. We've done alot of wallpapering and most of it has been in the Winter and with a normal Winter it's no problem, but a Winter like this has been, it is a problem, because the wallpaper has more trouble with sticking with a bitterly cold outside wall!! So "Yippee"!! We did it!!

Yippee, I've completed my 3 projects in a month plus a little more and then some. emoticon I played the piano for 5x/week in a month, I finished a sudoku book, I changed over into my new address book, we finished wallpapering the dining room after a couple of months of on and off because of the bitter cold winter days! So, I feel happy and even happier more because of you helping me, Karen, with figuring out how to manage my streaks and to have them show up where they're supposed to, etc. emoticon I finally figured it out, just took me awhile!! I hope you all have a super good week-end. emoticon

thank goodness the novel I'm reading is good, as good as the one I finished... I read most of this morning during winter sleet storm (everything already closed for Monday it seems)
then this afternoon I played two of those mystery hidden object adventure puzzle- video games online. I finished both over 10 hours: for that effort to completion I'm giving myself a check today towards this month's goal of three.

I took a cup of tea back to bed this morning and finished reading 'Moon Tiger' by Penelope Lively - I'd found it quite hard-going, but a good read, and glad I persevered with it.

I'm making my projects too hard to complete I think - but this month I might make three!

I had a project thrown at me . . . literally. I had to pull together a bunch of info and make packets for a meeting tomorrow - at my house, after my beading class. geeeeeez.
But I did it!

Haven't had time to read. (not really into the books I've got going.)

Next project is completing my studio (formerly affectionally referred to as 'the dungeon'). I spent hours on arranging it last weekend . . . and I'm SOOOO excited that it's coming together.

I've finished so many Sudoku puzzles online,that I feel safe to count it as one book, so I'll mark that off on my goals. I've playing the piano every day at 15 min./each time, so I'm working on turning that into a project. I'm losing some of my rustiness too! emoticon Oh, and I'm not eating while I play either. Another emoticon You're doing so good too, Karen!

I'm starting my ticker over with going low carb.

finished all 8 Sudoku puzzle (daily set of four levels of difficulty). this is a big deal because I've been getting stuck on third level, but able to finish first two levels & fourth level. There's something about puzzles 5 & 6 consistently more difficult for me then the most difficult level (puzzles 7 & 8) Any way this time I got all 8 puzzles solved.

Finished the Patterson book. Half way through 2 more books.

Plus, I finished updating the neighborhood watch list yesterday - that is a MAJOR accomplishment that I've been dreading/neglecting. But I got 'er done!

Next projects I'm working to complete:
#1 Cleaning out 'my' cluttered work room down stairs - setting it up for crafts (watercolor and beading) studio
#2 Scheduling a meeting next week at my house; clean house, organize meeting stuff....

okay! I can start on a new to me novel- I'm finished with the other one. I'm just not a romance reader... that last novel slipped in under my radar because the cover jacket looked suspenseful and the used booked store I was shopping in was overheated. I was sweating and trying to just check out quick so I wouldn't have to start stripping down in line... in a last ditch effort for items a few hours before one of the snow storms hit- I was desperate to have something fresh to read... well there, that's it- the whole story.

Yay! I've been reading this book on the bus to and from work (so I guess it's not really eating time - although it certainly could be!)

Finished TODAY! Very well-written autobiography by Jeanette Winterson "Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normall"

now to track the completed project ;D

sparkpeople count 30 days or limit window to 1st-last day...maybe this answers your question:

I also am in team leader challenge which counts each week to be the day I start in sets of seven days. I'm thinking what applies to one team applies to all.

All streak trackers always start on Sunday end on Saturday for all of site. Just do your stuff and check off completions this month ...see when the first award shows up.

I played the piano today after a long time of not playing. I know that it's not a project like finishing something, but it's a project for me to improve and work my arthritic fingers. My goal is to play 3x/week and I know that with doing that, that will be accomplishing alot and I'm not in the kitchen either. I don't like to eat at the piano at all!

Karen, do we count the month of Feb., with me just joining? Or do I start counting for a month now with being March 12th? I'm just wondering with earning the spark goodie.

I'm starting my ticker over with going low carb.

Project #1: I finished creating & updating everything, and preparing all the STUFF for the meeting last Saturday. THAT was a major feat!

Project #2: Finished the book I was reading, DeMille's The Panther. The last book that's been written in the John Corey series . . . and I'm really gonna miss that $mart-a$$ detective.

I have just finished reading The Vows of Silence by Susan Hill - and ticked the tracker :D

It was a murder/detective story, which is not my usual choice of reading - but i love Susan Hill's novels and was not disappointed. The only thing was that I couldn't read it at bedtime! Too scary!

I finished a knitted slipper set (dark gray) for myself...I am enjoying the added warmth on my feet with it being so cold these days...and we have wood floors.

I am knitting multi- pink colored miniature hot pads for Valentines for my 2 granddaughters in Colorado...they have a play kitchen and I thought the little hot pads would be a cute addition...the girls are 4 and 2!!

I am also reading and preparing to give a lesson to our local Christian farm country ladies once a month meeting the first Tuesday of the month (I was suppose to do it in January but we had to cancel because the weather was so bad.) It is Lazarus Awakening by Joanna Weaver...about finding your place in the Heart of God.
