Goals for this Week and Blessings 12/15/14

Ice Storm 2013



It's been absolutely beautiful in Michigan for the last couple of days.   This morning it's already a blamy 50 degrees!  The weather difference between this year and last year at this time is unbelievable.  We had quite a ice storm in December of 2013 and were without power for a few days. We've have been blessed this year so far.

The good weather got me outside and walking a lot further than I do in the mall!  I feel so much better taking time for myself and I imagine it's better for my health.

One of my goals has been to read the bible more and although I've tried this has gone by the wayside more than once.  Last week, Laura over at  Harvest Lane Cottage told me about YouVersion and I've started listening to the Bible as I do my chores.  Thank you Laura! Sometimes I listen twice to a chapter to make sure sure I hear everything. 

I worked hard on the printer situation without any success.  I finally gave up with intention on calling the company first thing this morning.  I really can't stand to call about this stuff.   Then something funny happened as I was on the computer last night the printer turned on by itself and started spitting out random pages that  I had tried to print before!   What a blessing that was (kind of scary ..but a blessing!).


Find a book to review.
Find ways to improve the blog.
Try my best to figure out why I can not print anything on my new printer.  I have to make up my mind do this!
I need to clean the refrigerator so I'm starting on the shelves.
Finish the baby blanket...I got my daughters finished  but i need to make more for baby showers that are coming up.

I need to make some large Santa bags for Christmas presents. (I will make a tutorial)
Mail out Christmas cards for family and write Christmas cards for church.
Start wrapping presents.
Stay on plan for diet.  (this is a weekly struggle for me ...especially with any added stress, sickness or holidays..basically anytime!)
Earn at least 50 Swagbucks a day.  (many times I earn more).  You can read how I make 50 or more Swagbucks a day here.

Read the Bible more.
Exercise at least 3 times a week (I will increase this later)- Because of the weather I've been walking at the local mall.  
Try to stay positive or find something each day to talk about that's great!  When I have stress this is hard to do but I've been working on it each day.
