17 for 2017- April
Life is galloping away with me! One third of the way through 2017. It’s been an odd mixture weather wise, lots of lovely sunny days then a short blast of Summer or Winter. The daffodils are over and my garden is full of bluebells, tulips and forget me knots. As for goals, well..
17 swims- 1 more so that makes 4
16 Hour long walks- going well , thanks to son and dog!
Maundy Thursday at the start of a walk along the Roman Road above Snape. Mr J, Master H, Miss S and Ms M, and the star of the picture, is Coco. I also managed a lovely walk myself, but more of that another day. Clocked up an impressive 5 walks, giving a total of 11
15 books read from the heap by the bed- just one this month, total now 11
14 lbs lost- one word, ok two, Easter Eggs
13 cards made- total stuck at 8
12 village posts- one more this month, 2 in total
11 days out- One added this month to York
The blossom in the Museum gardens was lovely and
York Minster is as magnificent as ever. 5 now
10 new things tried- bit miffed on this, two things arranged and postponed, maybe next month. Life! Total remains 2
9 knitting/ crochet projects. Oh Bagpuss
I don’t believe it, that makes NINE. Goal achieved!
8 other craft projects- 0
7 sewing projects
One babies ball, makes 2
6 Non Fiction books- 5 now, see below
5 bits of family history research. Bit of a cheat because this involved the reading of a non fiction book too. The book was about the local school, how it was set up etc. Originally part of a charitable foundation which involved local almshouses too.One of the surnames mentioned on the outside of said almshouse is that of an ancestor, question- was that my ancestor? It wasn’t but I was rewarded with this.
A picture of my Grandfather , second from the left. Whoever thought of school teachers acting in the school play?
So although the answer was a negative I have answered another question, so that makes 2
4 sort outs-still 3, kitchen is half done.
3 interesting finds-still 1
1 boat trip- o
o craft supplies added to, already failed thanks to the gremlins visit in March. Toy stuffing bought this month for Bagpuss, but that’s allowed.
Need to go away and have a big think about these goals. Some have gone well, some not at all. How about you? How are you doing, and what motivates you to achieve the things that back in January seemed like such a good idea?
