New Year Update

Christmas visitors!
JET age 25

Noble age 29

Dandylion age 20

Mr. Movie age 22
I'm not a great photographer and I don't have a wonderful camera so my photos are less than "Kodak Moments" quality. But whatever, I take a few photos to jog my memory.

We missed having Lt. Lehi and Miss Pasta with us. They are just a few weeks away from giving us our first grandchild, Jellybean.

The holidays were quiet, spent at home, enjoying time together.

January is my month to take care of some health issues. I've already had some pre-cancerous spots of Actinec Keritosis burned off my face and right hand. Upcoming is cataract surgery on my right eye. After that, new glasses, and then on to seeing about my painful left foot. Seems like when I turned 60, a year ago, my body began to fall apart!

 Goals for the new year include:

Finishing long ago begun projects: Cookbook, photo albums, quilts, etc.
Learning to speak (and read and write) Korean: I'm using an online program called Memrise.
Planting a flower garden
Downsizing my fabric stash and associated notions.
Improve my health by losing another 50 lbs. and exercising 4-5 days each week. (I'm down 16 lbs. since last summer.) It's slow going because I am making permanent changes to my eating habits so the weight loss will be permanent.

I'm still deciding whether to attempt blogging regularly. There are others who are so much better at it than I am, but I think I have something to offer. Leave a comment with your thoughts! I think of those whose blogs I read and those who read my blog as my friends! I like getting together.
