Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

15 for 2015- September

How the seasons pass- Autumn already, but with a bit of luck we shall continue to enjoy an Indian Summer. We had a lovely weeks holiday in Greece, and I have been in catch up mode ever since. The cooking apples and runner beans are stacking up nicely in the freezer.

Time for an update on my 15 for 2015 goals.

15 minutes walking 4 times a week. Even though my left sole hurts like billyo, I have managed to do this still.

14 bags to a charity shop-one more went this month, total is now 9. Getting there slowly.

13 animal photos- achieved already but I have four lovely ones to add in this month. How about this little moggy- Greek of course. After “doors” surely cats are the best photographs to come from Greece. I know I mention Greece a lot, but my mother in law was Greek, so I feel I have to do my bit to help that country. And if it means going on about Greece well I shall.

  1. Oh I love Greece. I can’t believe you didn’t take me with you! Hoorumph. Next year?

  2. Some more great photos and obviously the animal ones win hands down for the cute factor! You set yourself so many goals that I’m amazed you remain motivated to keep going. You’re made of sterner stuff than me. My biggest goal after having to close my photography business due to slipped discs, was to start a sewing school – which I’ve finally done!

  3. My goal for the year was to do a 365 project to work on something creative every day. I’ve made it so far, only 96 days to go! I love your idea of 15 for 2015!

  4. Thanks! I am l pleased you liked my horse. I have researched my foot problem on the internet. It was caused by walking in sandals! It could take a year to get better. A YEAR! Cure is don’t walk far on it, wear shoes with thick soles and rest. Well I had sort of already figured it out. Other advice is take ibuprofen and exercise. Trying to figure out exercise that doesn’t involve standing! Oh and loose weight! Some serious lifestyle decisions to be made!! It’s annoying because I haven’t worn silly shoes since I was a teenager and to have been caught out like this doesn’t seem right. Ah well the joys of getting older.

  5. You are right. Animal pictures win hands down. Doors are good too. 🙂 The horse is a beautiful photo. Hope you are getting that heel looked after before it turns into something more serious, We owe our feet a great deal for carrying all our loads so we must be kind to them. You are making great progress. I have yet to make my list. 😦
