So far, so.............................................

Who knows???

Am I getting there??? I don't have a clue!

Of course, I am talking about the list.  Since we are at the halfway point ..... I'll show you what is done!

Personal Enrichment
1) Read one book for fun!  Yea. For fun! It has been a long while since I have just sat down with book to read with no strings attached. Book is picked out and patiently sitting there for me.
2) Learn caning and complete one chair.
3) Select yarn and pattern for me to knit a sweater or vest at the Crafting at the Convent. Done
4) Schedule a "Pints and Purls" event with some of my favorite people at Peace Tree Brewing. Done but I don't get to go. :(

Health and Nutrition
1) Drink 64 oz of water every day.  Easy for me in the summer.....much harder in the winter. Still hard Does drinking lots and lots of hot tea count????
2) Prepare one vegetarian meal every week Done
3) Prepare one healthy fish meal every week
4) Lose 2 pounds. Sigh

1) Finish painting bedroom walls
2) Sew bedroom draperies
3) Sew duvet cover for comforter
4) Deep clean and organize all kitchen cabinets. Work in progress 4 are done and the cabinets and interiors are repainted.
5) Put an additional $50 this month into our savings account. (Actually -- staying out of the saving account in January would be a major accomplishment!!! I am trying to save 15% of our income to our emergency savings .. I am at 10%.  I need to cut expenses even more!) Might make it but not today!!!

Summer Kitchen
1) Sew 6 dishtowels
2) Spin 4 skeins of yarn 2 done -- working on 3rd.
3) Knit 12 dishcloths  Yes!!!!!
4) Make 4 batches of jam
5) Find and create a fun project for a new and different product for sale. HatsNot new or different but does it count???

1) Do lesson plan and handouts for the gardening section for the Homesteading Conference that I am teaching in April.  I am teaching four-90 minutes classes. In one day.  Yep. I am up to the challenge but what a lot of work.
2) Paint parking sign
3) Paint flower hours sign
4) Paint new barn quilt
5) Work on brochure for the farm.
6) Attend the WFAN conference.
7) Plan and create class schedule for summer classes.

1) Greet at church for the month of January  Not happening
2) Teach two classes for Scott Community College Actually, there will be three
3) Attend two Freight House Steering Committee meetings.... (This month, they are not scheduled the same night as my classes at Scott!) Nope .. see above!
4) Attend Buy Fresh-Buy Local Board meeting Can you attend a meeting by email????
5) Create the form letter and send membership forms out by the end of January for Buy Fresh-Buy Local Written and almost ready to go out.
6) Explore interest in creating an eastern-Iowa Farm Crawl type event. Done! Done! Done!  See this!

So not too bad for the first 14 days.  Hopefully next week ..... the sewing machine, the paint cans and jelly jars will magically appear!!!

Wow -I AM impressed. Keep up the good work. It's interesting to look at the balance, and keep your self accountable by regularly posting...hmm that's got me thinking...
Great list Cathy....keep up the good work. I'm afaid to even make a list! Oh, and I have a REALLY good recipe for pineapple teriyaki salmon...if you're interested. ;-)

Yes, hot tea counts, as long as it is herbal tea (black and green tea contain natural diuretics, which rather defeats the purpose). I find it easier to drink warm or hot water in the winter; have you tried that?

You're doing great; keep it up!
Lady - you are a saint. And you must move at warp speed. This is a major list. 12 dishcloths? WOW!

And, tea totally counts. At least I count it. It's water.

I thought of you when I discovered this site. Start at the very beginning of her archive list. The pics of flowers and quotes are so restful and inspiring.

Boo, the details aren't showing up on the Farm Crawl. Send us details over at Radish! Hopefully I can make the next cheese class, I figured nobody would want me and my cold there this week. :-(
