A leaf

This leaf fascinated me because there is not a single tree in my yard that has leaves this big yet there it was flapping around on the ground in the breeze.

Goal recap

January goals

wear makeup to work each day I am on the schedule (I did this every single day I had to go to work and all but one of the Sundays that I went to church.)

add some color into my wardrobe aside from the black I always wear on my days off (This was a resounding success. I also have several new dresses for church that are in all the colors and not just black.)

set up a budget book (I got a start on this. It's not completed but it's a good ways along.)

organize my filing cabinet (This was successfully accomplished on my vacation.)

write in my beside journal at least 4 days a week (Um.... not once.)

read at least 5 books this month (I read 11.)

go to church at least 2 Sundays (There were 5 Sundays this month and I made it to church on 4 of them.)

do something different with my hair (I dyed it pink and have never gotten so many compliments before. Everyone has loved it.)

practice gratitude (every day!)

exercise at least 4 days a week (Does thinking about exercise count? NO... Ok. I managed a couple of days every week and 4 days one week. I'll need to do better.)

February goals

Finish organizing my budget book.

Write in my bedside journal at least once a week.


Read 5 books this month.

Start the process to return to school to finish my degree.

do a cross stitch project
