This is what I woke up to this morning. I'd say Winter has arrived!
That is how I feel. I don't really know where to start. Here we are in a new year 2009, and I can't seem to get my thoughts down. I have been taking things a bit slower and also starting a new system. I guess you can say that is one of my new goals for this year. There are many things that I want to achieve and work on this year that will benefit me and my family. Most of which are simply personal. Here is a small portion of some of the things that are rolling around in my head.
- One, being a better blogger buddy. I haven't been doing all that great. Life seems to have a mind all it's own.
- More quiet time with God.
- Spend time with God daily in prayer.
- Digging deeper in my study of the Word/bible study.
- Reading more spiritual books for guidance/resources purposes that allow me to dig deeper
- Focus on the simple things in my life and be grateful.
- Spend more quality time with my family and friends.
As you can see most of my goals are of spiritual nature but I feel a strong push toward this this year. Last year my goals were oriented around organizing and even though I didn't master that, I still plan to work on it. Believe me, there is ALWAYS something to organize at my house. I also wanted to start journaling my simple pleasures so I joined Peggy at the Simple Woman's Daybook. You can check out my new blog for my Journal. I think it makes it easier to just recognize the simple things that we are grateful for. This is a just a fun way to remember.
I am running a bit short on time at the moment, but wanted to let you know that I hope to get my blogging pattern down soon. Since the holidays and getting the Christmas Decorations down, I have kinda like that "sparse" feeling....so I have carried that over to my computer time as well. I am decluttering my blogs, making some changes, and cleaning and better organizing my computer files. My inboxes look better than they ever have, and I set myself up a system on responding to emails that I need too, so that things don't get lost. One of my other helpers, and it is a big one for me is my day planner, I couldn't do anything without it. Everything goes in there, from appts, what's going on with Tori and with whom, dinner ideas, shopping ideas, even blog ideas, I use it for everything. I also use one on the computer so if I need to, I can print it out and go.
Possibly soon, I will blog about some of the resources I like to use to keep me on task...but until then, I should go. I didn't mean to write a book, but it has been awhile since I have posted. I will try to get around to visit with you all soon.
BTW, I still haven't gotten Christmas pictures off my camera, but once I do...I will post them. Most likely I will post them to my Christmas Blog and then direct you there to see them if you want.
