New Year goals.
prayer1
With 2014 being over, and Christmas for the year done, I have decided on 2015 that I will set some goals.

My number 1 goal is to get off the couch and move. Beginning Monday I will walk 1 mile per day, minimum.

My second goal is to buy nothing new. There is nothing we need to get. I have most kitchen appliances known to man as it is. We have computers and tvs and such and do not need any. Could probably get rid of a few if we really wanted to. We need no clothes, if we lose weight, at least mine can pretty easily be taken in.
My exceptions to this challenge are under things and gifts for others.

My 3rd goal is the most important of the 3. More Bible reading and study. I already read a chapter each day for a month (January it is Mat. 5) in the morning and at night. My night chapter for January is Phil 4. I will add in the book of Ephesians, at noon each day. It is a short book and so can be read daily all month long.

I also need to get back to blogging and crafting. My goal is to blog at least once a week. More if my life grows in interest!

I think those 3 goals will keep me busy for a while. I intend to add in other things along the way as I master these.

While 2014 was not a bad year, it was busy and full of ups and downs.
My Beloved father in law’s estate was finally settled. Enabling us to pay cash for our home. We have been in the house 7 months now and other than a few small things, I dearly love it. It suits us.

The fall for me was filled with sickness and pain. It seems as soon as I get one issue taken care of another pops up. My hope is I am done for a while after this last allergy attack, which has lasted now just over 2 weeks. I discovered Zyrtec and Mucinex in combination allow me to breathe without coughing fits.

November saw Drew get a new car. A family gathering for Thanksgiving and fun Christmas prep and shopping.

December began with Chris shopping for a motor home. I went with him and his girl Courtney on the search. We saw a Tesla car on the road and took pictures (yes we are like that).

Motor home
Once the motor home was purchased, picked up and set up on location, Chris and his girl and Spazzy the cat moved in. Just in time for a winter storm, the likes of which are rare here!

Christmas was fun, it lasted almost a whole week this year! The Houston brother came in on the eve and stayed over the day. then on the Friday after Chris and his girl came and stayed until Sunday. We had our big family doings on Saturday.
I was also blessed to get to spend 2 weeks getting to know my nephew. He is 4 and a very smart youngster. My only regret is that I have been sick the entire time and unable to play as I normally would have.

Well my friends that is all the news I can think of. Stay warm!
