Archive for January, 2016

1. I really don’t have patience with other people. I found myself working hard to be patient with my mom during her surgery and recovery. I also find myself being pretty impatient with my husband. I realize that I have to really work on this during 2016.

2. I like traveling by myself. I make this trip to St. George every January and love the drive and having time to recharge.


3. Along with traveling… I love road trips. I really need to plan one for the summer – maybe with Amanda and Ness.

4. I enjoy making things. I’ve decided to participate with Tim Holtz’s tags of 2016. I don’t need to have all the new supplies to put my own spin on it. I’m also enjoying participating in a new DLP2016 (Documented Life Project 2016) which is more of a planner. Every week is a new challenge and I’m liking it that.

I can’t believe how quickly life moves. When I finished posting my 31-day challenge, I had every intention of writing on my blog at least once a week after that. But here it is, January 2, 2016 and I am just getting around to writing again. November and December was almost a blur.


One of the best parts of Christmas, was being able to Skype with my daughter who is serving a mission in Argentina for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This is her second Christmas away from home and I hate to say that I am counting the days, literally, before she comes home. The rest of Christmas was great too. We had all the rest of the family home and we got snow on Christmas – a true white Christmas.

It was fun to have our only grand daughter her for Christmas. Even though she’s still pretty young, we loved being able to see her respond to the decorations and the presents and the excitement.

I am making a commitment to myself to write more this year. (Notice I didn’t say resolution). So I guess here’s to updating my blog in 2016… weekly??
