Am I failing my reading goals for the year?

My annual goal of reading 50 books a year is looking like yet another miss…I just finished my 13th book.  I have a lot of reading to do to reach my goal by the end of the year, but I am going to keep plugging on.  Reaching the goal is a bonus to my enjoyment […]

Instagram part deaux

After much thinking and hesitation, I have created an Instagram solely from my bullet journal/writing and reading endeavors.  I was following so many people on my personal IG that I thought it would be easier to separate the two. Ok…to be completely honest., I have THREE instagram accounts.  My personal one, my bullet journal one, […]

Color me happy

I’ve not been feeling well for a while now.  It’s probably all related to my diabetes.  Sometimes it’s just my feet hurting.  Sometimes it’s an overall blah feeling…and sometimes, well, I cannot quite describe how I feel, other than just….off. So, I had my followup with my doctor in regards to my diabetes today and […]

My 2018 reading challenge…

Always running behind…

Mind you,  I am rarely, if ever, late for an appointment or for work.  However, I seem to be running behind on my penpal letters, and my journaling, and my reading.  My intentions are good, but I get busy, or distracted and oops…didn’t get to it. In February, I participated InCoWriMo, which I thoroughly enjoyed, […]

InCoWriMo update

Well the challenge is over and while I did not get a note written every day, I didn’t fail completely. I did receive 4 letters which I think is pretty good. Even though the event is over, I do plan to write all 4 back. Will I do it again next year? I do think […]

Like a flash…the Olympics are over

The winter Olympics have come and gone and this year, unlike others, I didn’t watch much of it at all. Partially I think, it’s because when I was a kid, we didn’t have all these tv channels so your weekends were filled with sports…especially leading up to the Olympics. My mom and I would watch […]

A letter a day…

Here we are, a few days before the start of InCoWriMo and I am ready to start making a list of people I want to write to during the month of February.  I am excited, and pretty much ready to go, outside of getting some international stamps. I have decided to pick people off the […]

International Correspondence Writing Month (InCoWriMo)

I just signed up for the first time for InCoWriMo, in which, during the month of February, you send a handwritten letter, card or note to someone every day. I’ve never done anything like this before, and I hope I have not bitten off more than I can chew, but as one of the things […]
