This is a new year and most of us use this "new" period to set some goals for the new year. It is encouraging to start anew with some new goals. Today I went to a Woman's Wellness at the Baylor Hosp. here in Ft.Worth. I went with my friend Patty. Not only was it some great "girl time", but it was very educational healthwise. I want to encourage you to think about your health and it might be helpful to find a friend for encouragement. I need to lose 35 lbs. and Patty needs to quit smoking. So there you have it. This Woman's Forum was free at Baylor Health. I urge you all to make one of the free events in your area. They make you feel empowered to do something about the new you in the new year. I am so glad I made myself get up on a Saturday at 5:30 a.m. to attend this event at 7:00 a.m. It was so worth it! So that is what I did today.

Cheers to the New Year!

Happy New Year to you all. It is almost 2 weeks into the new year and I am pondering what I will make of it. Another year to work on being the best I can be. I need to focus on health especially. I am keeping a food journal (started today). I have been at this health thing so long I really don't need a journal to keep up with what I eat. I pretty much eat healthy all of the time. My weakness is a "venti cinnamon dolce latte iced with whip cream) every Sat. and Sun. OOOh so bad but soo good. Gonna work on that.

Second I am focusing on my workshops. Haven't had a workshop since late last year. I have a great workshop area and a great studio. I have got to get some workshops on the table. Soldering will probably be the first and then nuno felting. Both workshops were a great success. This spring I am incorporating a garden luncheon into the workshop day. I have been occupying my time this past year with putting in a serenity garden and beautiful, relaxing backyard with deck. That is how I have spent my time so I wouldn't think so much about the loss of three loved ones last year, including my son. I am going to give you a peek into the garden so you can see what I consider serenity.
