Do you losten to Pandora?  What are your favorite stations?

Year End Musing!

Wow!  Gone a bit without visiting my blog.  Not the end of the world, but still something I wish I could "do" more faithfully.

Never been to good at New Years Resolutions.    Guess I did succed in somethings during 2016.  Managed to log 15 books read, with one title twice.  Started wearing a Fitbit in January; I've logged 2,689,785 steps.  I'm sure that will increase some in the remaining few days.  I will not make promises or firm goals for concrete bench marks in either area for 2017.  I just want to keep moving and reading.  I'm already compiling a list of books I'd like to read, so hopefully I'm off to a good start.  As for moving, just keeping at it and in need of new sneakers.  Got to take care of the feet!!!!

Other things I REALLY want to accomplish:
  1. a sky scarf - I've talked about it here before.  Three to five shades of daytime sky colors and knitting a row of the appropriate color for each day.  Not sure how this will pan out, but have three colors already and thing I have the pattern narrowed down to a couple different stitches.  Will write more later.
  2. trying more "new" recipes.  Nothing elaborate or fancy, just new to us.
  3. getting out more with Kevin
  4. getting out more with friends
  5. blogging more
  6. finding my crafting nitch
That seems good enough for now, no need to be overwhelming here.

To bring thankfulness up to date:
  1. time to read
  2. roaring fires
  3. good coffee
  4. boys doing well in school
  5. time off
  6. getting out and walkin
  7. apple picking
  8. Simon put star on Christmas tree
  9. seeing Christmas lights with friends
  10. matching pajamas
And with this quick post, I'm wrapping it up.  Lots left to accomplish today.
