A long time coming...

Phew, what a year 2015 was! The months seemed to rush by with no sign of slowing down. For me, last year was jam-packed with family, friends, sewing, knitting, cooking, holidays, school, markets and keeping shops stocked. 307 more words


2016 Resolutions update

Fitness:  January will be over tomorrow and since the last update I have upped my daily goals by about 50% (10000 steps per day moved to 15000, 5 miles to 7.5, 10 flights of stairs to 15, etc..)  The only goal I am having trouble hitting is the 3000 calories burned/day – I get really close (about 2800) but rarely have I made that goal.  195 more words
