A Quick Inventory

What’s new?                                 february

Turned a page on the calendar to reveal a new month. February has taken the stage. A quick inventory of my goals, projects, ideas, drumroll please…looks as though January was a successful month(these are not listed in order of importance).

I managed to get the home office cleaned out of unnecessary 2011 papers AND maintain the organization for a month.

Several new recipes have been created in the kitchen, all with accolades from the partakers. I have started to create a menu and shopping list in anticipation of the upcoming week.

Spent many hours in quiet reflection seeking direction and wisdom for the year. This has given me inspiration for a new personal ministry which I will be pursuing over the next 11 months.

My husband’s new business has launched successfully AND he is now taking a paycheck…woot woot!

I volunteered at my first Tiara Tuesday event for the organization Dress for Success.

Read 3 books toward my annual goal of 20.

Ok those are the highlights, pretty good I think.

What’s new for this month?

Well today I trialed a commuter van. My daily commute is 47 miles each way which takes me no less than an hour door to door. I drive a Prius so I feel I do my part to conserve but the drive is very tiring. There have been some real parking challenges where I work creating a major push for creative commuting. Easy Street is the non-profit van service for commuters. So this morning I drove to a local commuter lot, parked my car and got into a van with a bunch of strangers and headed off to the Insurance City for work. I will admit I was a little nervous. But this soon faded. I sat in comfort and read a book as I was driven to and from work. This is great. I am sold. I just gained 2 hours a day! EASYSTREET_VAN_1

Tomorrow I will begin a class that has interested me for some months now. One of my budding areas of interest discovered on my journey to authenticity is photography. I hope to invest in my own camera in a few month with the money I am saving now that my husband is collecting a paycheck again. Healing though Photography using a book called God Is at Eye Level will help me explore my world behind the lens and require continued stretching outside my comfort zone. God is at eye level

I hope to post some of my assignments as I progress.

I know of a few other stretching exercises I will undergo in the next few weeks but the hour is getting late and my eyes are tired. So until next time…

  1. Thanks so much for sharing the goals update! I did mine a little early due to a blog topic that couldn’t wait until the end of January 🙂

    I really made Marge Katherine’s day when I posted on A Daily Life about her no comfort zone challenge – oh was she thrilled! Thanks so much for the link on your blog.

    I can’t tell what your ministry goals are, but this little book might help clarify your thoughts on it even if they don’t involve writing. It’s worth the 99 cents:

    I hope this doesn’t go to spam!
