Book 4 of 50

I am off to a slow start on my goal (again) of reading 50 books this year. I just finished #4.  But, the last book I finished in a few days versus a few weeks. The time to read isn’t a problem, it’s the whole thing of actually sitting down to do it…taking even 20 […]

Putting pen to paper

This year I have decided to once again participate in IncoWrimo. This is my 2nd year participating in International Correspondence Writing Month (Incowrimo) and I am also participating in LetterMo which is essentially the same thing. Different hashtags on all the social media platforms, but the basic premise is the same…write a letter to someone […]

Change…

My husband unexpectedly retired in October. Basically, after getting his bonus in September, they eliminated his position. He disn’t handle it well, and was not in a very good mood for a few weeks. He has worked since he was 14, and now, at 59 1/2 feels a bit lost. But, he has now decided […]

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 […]

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…

Every year I set a goal to read at least 50 books during the year.  I track it over on goodreads now, but a few years ago, I did on another site, which is no longer in existence.  I finished a book today, and logged in it, then saw that I am 14 books behind […]

Getting a handle on diabetes…

I’m learning to monitor my blood sugar more, and learning about what i can and cannot eat.  It’s hard to change 50 years of eating habits.  it really is…even when your life depends on it. I checked my blood sugar at 7 am, before I left for work.  i had 2 cups of tea with […]

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 […]
