My planned 18 in 2018 activities:

1. Read 6 books related to health.
2. Reread a childhood favorite book.
3. Read or watch Sophie's Choice. Watched 2/3/18
4. Read a book of poetry.
5. Hand tie a blanket.
6. Make a button bracelet.
7. Try 12 new recipes.
8. Make a lemon meringue pie from scratch.
9. Listen to 12 podcasts.
10. Take a class, one day or several and gardening ones don't count.
11.Attend a symphony performance.
12. Participate in the library's winter reading program. January 21 to March 3. I read 9 books and got a Bingo this year. I won a prize again this year which wasn't surprising since I don't think a lot of people sign up for this and you can only win one prize (there were over 20 offered).
13. Get a deep tissue massage.
14. Try acupuncture.
15. Get a Plant Peel Facial Treatment.
16. Play cards at the senior center.
17. Go on a Brewery Tour.
18. Attend open mic night. Just to listen.

My Goals:

Learn to think before I eat.



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 35 years. We only have fur kids. Mostly we've 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.

    . . . life is an inside-out game. Our relationship w/ourselves influences everything. How well we know, honor, nurture, forgive & love ourselves is reflected back to all of us in all our outer experiences/relationships. Valerie Sheppard

    emoticon Good morning,
    I watered the front yard and flowers earlier. 2 Cardinal were in the trees singing. I love seeing them.

    Hope your day is restful. Hope your walk with Molly is good too.

    My GD is coming over later this afternoon. Yeah!

    Hugs

    We are still in the mountains until the first of November, hopefully! We’ve had som days where we didn’t need to run the a/c and the nights have been cool. But there will be days when it is really warm. Hope you are doing well emoticon

    Thanks for your blog comment and sharing dog tales. At first I loved how Molly had made a new friend complete with treats. Am sure it brightens the day for both. Then I paused and put myself in the same situation hmmmmm... As far as the treat being too big, perhaps this new friend would break one in half especially for her. We're taking a rare day off from walks today - rainy and humid. I put their portable fence around the front door last night in preparation for the wet day. We'll make up for it tomorrow (I hope) which promises to be cooler and somewhat less humid. emoticon
