Remember when I used to write things about my garden? In 2015, making a successful garden was one of my goals… I made plans… I shared a photo of my plants growing… And some of my harvests… Last year, I didn’t make gardening one of my official goals, but I did a big (for me) DIY … Continue reading Garden Update – Summer 2017 ...

After the difficulty with keeping up with the mins game (and keeping records and tracking everything that I decluttered for that challenge) I sort of stopped keeping track of things that were leaving our house… But… That doesn’t mean things haven’t been leaving… With all the kitchen and dining room stuff moving in to the … Continue reading Random Decluttering ...

I bet you are wondering how my “focus on fitness” went in June, right?  Okay, maybe you aren’t, but I’m going to share with you anyway…  So, I laid out the plan in my bullet journal, and it seemed like a pretty simple plan… Until I realized that life would get in the way… with … Continue reading June Focus on Fitness Results ...
