Day #234 here in Spark Villa
I must admit I looked at #15 of from my pin on pinterest entitled 30 things to start doing for yourself and got confused. All 30 begin with the word start. #15 is start competing with an earlier version of yourself. Maybe it is a misprint. I in no way want to compete with an earlier version of myself.
OK I am going on to self-care because I am rocking learning self-care.. #14 from the pin on pinterest entitled 50 ways to practice self-care is make your favorite meal. Hummmm...I don't have a favorite meal. I know my son loves tacos and something I pinned said October 4 is Taco Day. When he was in High School I always liked to make Tuesday's Taco Tuesdays to make sure I had tacos for him once a week but my favorite meal? Since it is just me...I don't do Taco Tuesdays. I will have to think about what I really like!1
I am rocking my challenges also:
#1) Declutter your home in a year. My mission today is declutter the living/family room-so glad I did that doing my Autumn cleaning. It took a lot of time to do that!
#2) Home.Work. Play Challenge is add another glass of water. I am unsure if I can do that though after 40 minutes of jogging...maybe I can or end up in ER-LOL!
#3) #23 of Jessica Smith's 28 day Fall back into Fitness challenge. 40-minutes inside jogging. Let's just say I did the low impact and was not one of my favorites!
Under the pin I found on pinterest entitled 'thing's to do when you're done' that I've been putting on my status. Under engaging your brain: Do a cross word puzzle-I have never done one! Research a topic-when I was reading Laura Ingalls Wilder series-I did do a lot of researching things from there I didn't understand. It was fun. Complete a maze-I loved doing mazes as a kid and so did my son. We went to a corn maze when he was in Kindergarten and I hated it! I hated the feeling of being trapped. Play a word game-never liked doing that. Organize something-I am always doing that. Listening to a teaching tape-do not like doing that!
79 days until son's winter break. I went to my counselor this AM. I had planned to get this blog done before I left then do my exercise when I got home...didn't work like that! She said she could see a lot of changes in me plus I looked thinner-hum! For my Fall Fun today I am making pumpkin spiced cookies-I found at Walmart. I hope my son like them! He loves pumpkin! Yesterday I worked almost all day on my family tree and all I got done was the last of my paternal grandfather's sisters. I need to now go back through and write down questions I have and send them to my dad's sister to see if she knows the answers. Then I am off to my paternal grandmother. When I started this in 1989, she was still a live and she knew nothing about her family so it should be interesting to see if I find out anything. Anyhow I remembered when I was in High School one of my dad's first cousin's 2 daughter's on his dad's side rode the bus with me. I found one of the girls on face book and sent her a face book request. She friended me back yesterday. Her sister whom I could not find on face book just sent me a request! I am so loving reconnecting with family!
