Healthy Steps – Week 7

This week I was down 3.8 pounds. This makes a total of 20.6 pounds (12.2 of those in this year) removed and… drum roll please… 5% of my starting weight.

Healthy Steps – Week 6

A new “Little” adventure

Today, after months of planning, the final “feature” of my summer garden re-do was installed. Meet Little Free Library, charter # 67289. In December, the LFL website had some pretty good sales, so as a “Santa” present, I got myself a library. I had to paint it (harder than it looks because the hardware had

2018 Goal List

It’s really easy to write down all the things I’d like to accomplish over the coming year. What’s hard is remembering I only have so much time and energy. This is from a Weight Watcher’s exercise about mastering your time. While the list below is long (really long), I’d also like to think it’s doable
