My friends, Happy New Year! Have you survived the Darkness of Winter and are you rejoicing in the return of the Light?
Something about the turn of the calendar and I am inclined to reflect. Does this happen to you?
This year I am beginning with my Shining Year planner by Leonie Dawson. I happened to discover it last year after I had already purchased a planner. But I finally bought one mid-year, as her followers were just so enthusiastic about how the workbooks helped them lead happier lives, reaching their goals. Even now, I wonder if I should have purchased one of the bigger planners, as the workbook enthusiasts are posting their success stories and swear by the planners.
My kids are still on Winter Break, so we have been able to enjoy doing things together just a bit longer, it seems. Although it is the same number of days off as they usually get, somehow returning on the 9th of January just seems more relaxing, doesn’t it? We are enjoying watching movies and going to bookstores and redeeming our giftcards and reading and playing music. My crafty daughter and I are starting a keepsake quilt made from her favorite tee shirts. Hmm maybe we will make a video tutorial!
It’s been a year since my Manifesting Money post, and I’m happy to report that even after all those DVDs I traded in for cash last year, I STILL HAVE MORE. And the stack I kept in case the kids wanted to watch them sometime, well seeing as they haven’t in A YEAR, I’m trading them in! CD’s, too, as I kept a ton just in case, but my new car doesn’t even have a cd player in it, so. Bye, Bye, Bye, BYE BYE!
The best thing I did for myself last year was find like-minded friends in groups. Two of my online friends have started groups this week, and that made me think maybe I could do the same. Stay tuned.
After the shocking deaths of George Michael, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, I decided to schedule a routine physical with my doctor. My heart and blood pressure are fine. My new doctor gave me some reading on relaxation techniques. And I found that the maker of one of my favorite supplements also makes a blended product containing something new I wanted to try. #PracticingHealth
And the most exciting news: I finished writing my book! I am so excited to share it with the world! We have finished editing, and it is now with the formatter. I would expect to launch in about two weeks.
Dee’s Dishes is a collection of stories, reflections, and recipes. Have you ever had Pepsi thrown on you? For me, more than once. Wouldn’t you like to find out more about that? And then there’s my recipe for Pepsi Brownies. Sounds good, right?
Stay tuned, my friends!
What are you doing in this New Year?
