3 Things I am Loving Lately

Rather then moan about the endless winter or go on about how unhappy I am with myself. I am going to focus on stuff I love lately.

1. Not being alone during snow storms.

This is really huge. When I spend three days cooped up alone, it gets to me. Now, I have my guy, the two cats and the dog. I am not alone.


2. Raw broccoli

I do not know why. I just love it. I do not want it cooked. Just raw and maybe with a little dressing. 

3. Soup

I could eat it everyday. I especially love this White Bean, Kale and Sausage soup. Yum!


What do you love lately?

Just to reiterate the dog and winter:

Stop The Slide Goals

I have been a little adrift on life lately. Things have begun falling apart and just getting up for work has been a challenge. Part of this is this horrible winter. I am not a winter fan at all but usually it is wicked cold or snowy. This year it is frigging freezing and snowy. We have our third snow event this week today, but I digress.

Then it has been almost 2 years since Mom died. 

I need some goals. Of the healthy, fun, motivating, get me to clean up kind.

First the stop the backward slide goals:

1. Eat 3 meals a day.
I find myself skipping breakfast or going to hours in between eating or being so hungry I overeat. I must eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. If it is just a mini meal, that is okay but I must eat something.

2. De-clutter.
If it has not moved in 5 years and is going away. Period. Recycle mail I do not need. Recycle, recycle, recycle.

3. Get some exercise.
I am not talking about 5 hours each day but just 45 minutes or so 3-4 times a week. 

Happiness goals:

1. Knit more! 
It goes with number 2 above, use my yarn stash! Anyone need a hat?

2. Learn more about what I want to do in France
I am going to France (!!!!!) in June. What should I visit? 

3. Read more of the books I own. 
Cut down on library books. Read my book stash.

4. Take Bailey, my dog, on longer walks
He needs it. I need it. 

That's it for now.

Have any goals yourself?
