Learn - I bought a new camera which allows me to take different photos than I am used to. Continue to my Flickr challenges and learning new techniques.
Read - I read 20 books in 2017. This included novels, true stories, picture books, and books to learn a skill or find a project.
Teach - I taught my monthly card club and a couple of bible studies.
Relax - Most of my relaxing time was reading time. Not too many coloring pages were completed. I did watch TV but with over air antenna reception is sometimes a challenge. I totally enjoyed `This is Us` show.
Move - I did do exercises at home and walked at least an hour each morning for spring, summer and fall. I am only up 2 pounds over the holidays but that is due to this deep freeze weather we have been experiencing. I have been hibernating.
Check the end of the post for the giveaway details.
I managed an update to the kitchen which was not had not been firmed up in my mind last January.
Here are my goals for 2018!
I want to create a website to showcase my photography.
I am working on the development of a workshop for my show at the gallery in October.
I am preparing a Fruit of the Spirit bible study which will start in February.
I very soon will be making decisions about the subject matter of my 2019 photo calendars and setting up photography time to get those done by the middle of the year.
I will capture insights I have gained, things I have learned, and concepts I can share from my reading of each book
This book has a sturdy translucent cover with a coil binding which needed to be tightened. Fortunately, I had the machine to do the job. Once, that was sorted out I cut some black letters with the Stampin Up Little Letters thinlit set and glued them onto the first page.
I have already recorded my first book for 2018!
I can run the stairs, use the treadmill downstairs, walk outdoors, and use my exercise video.
I have been using the stairs more because as the elevators are being overhauled so we will be down to one for the next 6 months. I don`t NEED to take the elevator unless I am hauling groceries so there is more stair climbing in 2018.
My blog lets me connect with fellow bloggers and my Flickr challenges with other photographers.
Card Club and card challenges let me connect with fellow card makers.
I am wanting to add another monthly social activity to my calendar and am looking to join a `Scrabble`game time once a month. There are a couple of options available in my area.
I would like to host a few more friends over for tea this year as well.
DE-CLUTTER & ORGANIZE - If you have followed my blog you may remember I worked on my craft space in 2013. Craft supply storage in 2015. The storage room in 2016.
My renewed interest in sewing has attracted some supplies to my home which need a home. So, I will have get rid of some stuff to make room for this. Some hard decision will have to be made and paper may be sacrificed for fabric.
It`s been a year since I retired and I want to get out more.
I have four 2018 photo calendar as give aways for those who leave me a comment on this post. Please share your 2018 goals, plans, objectives and upcoming events. I will pick 4 winners on February 7th. Have a super day!
