( this is the new mantle Andy made me, we were going to close it in when we first added the wood stove but Andy thought it might get to hot so we did this instead. )

Can’t believe another year has come, where does the time go?  It has been cold and snowy here so ready for nice weather even though I know winter is just getting started lol.

                                                                                                  I am going to start the 300 a month again I kind of failed at it last year. I really need to get some debt paid down. I will allow myself 300 dollars a month, what I don’t use I will carry over to the next month. The only things I will not add to this is Daycare supplies, and Canning supplies (like jars, ect). but everything else will count including food storage.

My goals for the week are,

I am moving rooms around making a guest-craft room out of one of the girl’s room and turning the other in to a pantry-daycare storage room . I started over the weekend but caught a chest cold on New Year’s Eve and felt bad all weekend so didn’t get as far on it as I had hoped. So hopefully I can get it finished this week.

Work on my household notebook I am doing it a little different this year to make it more user friendly. (so it isn’t a jumbled mess lol).

Start getting stuff organized for taxes. ( fun fun fun)

In the kitchen. Need to start making my own bread again got out of the habit so hopefully I will get some made in the next couple days.

The sewing table. I am working on a quilt for Katie, have some mending to do on a couple pair of pants for Joleen, and I need to replace a zipper in Andy’s coveralls. 

These are the fabrics I will be using for Katie’s quilt.

In the Fiber basket. Joleen wanted a messy bun cap I made this one but it was a little bit to big so I need to try and make another one, continuing to work on an afghan I have started, and start spinning some wool that I have.

Daycare. I have changed the schedule up so hoping to get it implemented this week. Need to find a few more ideas for inside P.E..

Diet and Fitness

I have started a low carb diet I have about 40 pounds that I need to get off. I have been getting up a 5:30 so I can workout before the day gets started I am doing the 21 day fix and really enjoy it. Seems like my day goes much better when I do this. Trying to do a workout everyday, hopefully I can keep it up.
