Moderation

Friday, October 31st, 2014

We’re not supposed to write down our good habits, but rather just the inverse of our bad habits. There were a few that I needed to recommit to but it was easy to do so. I’m going to remove those at the end of the week, and I’m adding the others that may be challenging. […]

Rise Up, O Men of God

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

We’re singing this anthem in church this Sunday. Here are the lyrics: Rise up, O men of God! Have done with lesser things. Give heart and mind and soul and strength To serve the King of kings. Rise up, O men of God! The kingdom tarries long. Bring in the day of brotherhood And end […]

Exercise aerobically 30 minutes a day, 4 days a week. Track your eating. Eat less than 300 calories of junk food per day. Avoid fast food Floss daily. Sleep at least 7 hours a night. I bought a Fitbit in June and got up to 5-7k steps most days, with the occasional 10k day. Then […]

Purpose

Saturday, October 25th, 2014

Rich Habit #16 from the online list is this: 16. Know your main purpose. Here’s the process the author recommends for discovering one’s true purpose: 1. Make a list of everything you can remember that made you happy. This would be a very long list. Probably you’re supposed to add to the list over time. […]

Rich Habits?

Friday, October 24th, 2014

On the way home from class today, I heard about a book called Rich Habits. It sounded interesting. Googling found me this initial list: 1. Live within your means. Yep. 25 percent on housing, no matter if you own or rent ($1000) 15 percent on food ($600) 10  percent on entertainment ($400) 5 percent on […]

Toby the Dog

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Toby came to us as a puppy some 14 years ago. We crate trained him, but he didn’t want to stay in his crate at night. In fact, it is probably that he spent those early nights in the crate plotting how to accomplish his one great aim in life: to sleep in a bed […]

Recuperating

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

I’ve been alternating between bed (often with laptop) and desk (coughing and sniffling) for most of the time since I last wrote, though I did get to church and a meeting before I succumbed. I’ve been sick. Nothing serious, though my husband asked whether it could be Ebola. I assured him that it wasn’t Ebola, […]

Leverage

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Yesterday I watched Leverage all day — while knitting, and I completed the front and back of #2 son’s Christmas sweater and got started on the sleeve — and also while working on a website we’re planning to launch this coming week. There was a great deal of copying and pasting, adding headers, and making […]

Busy Week

Saturday, October 18th, 2014

Last Saturday #1 daughter and I held our branding and marketing retreat. We drove on winding roads dressed with autumn leaves and walked through damp, hilly streets, and I think we made some progress. We also had lunch in a cozy Italian restaurant and did Christmas shopping. I didn’y buy this necklace but I was […]
