Goals for 2010

Here are last year's goals:

*The first one is to read the whole Bible this year using Tabletalk's plan.

*The other one is to cook through the pile of recipes I have copied from on-line.

I am happy that I accomplished the first one. I'm amazed at how wrong my attitude was be about Bible reading. At times, it would seem like such a drudgery to read three or four chapters in a day. Sometimes it take a whole 20 minutes! Gasp. Then I would turn around and easily read that many chapters of some fiction or spend way more time than that on the computer. In that sense, I really learned something about myself. I worked to correct my thinking. I came to enjoy doing the reading. Not always, but most of the time. I am glad the intensity (keeping up with it everyday, so as not to get behind) of it is done.

The other goal I didn't exactly accomplish, but instead added more to the pile. I did get through most of the recipes that I wanted to. Some of them just wouldn't work for our family, that is I'm the only one who would want to eat them. So I've still got plenty of recipes to try.

Now for the new year. I actually started thinking and praying about it in November. It started with realizing the Bible reading plan would be finished and what I should study next. I was talking with dh about it on our anniversary and he reminded me that I had want to delve more into Revelation. So, that's my first goal for 2010.

The second one is to catch up on scrapbooking. I usually enjoy doing it, but it takes a back seat to sewing. I want to do our family scrapbook regularly to keep it up to date. I've also got a special project in mind that I can't tell here or it wouldn't be a surprise (and if I don't get to it this year no one will be disappointed.).

Now in order to accomplish goal number two I've got to clean off the desk. ;-)

I like the short list idea. Actually I have the no list plan.
