3 in 30: April {week 3}

April's goals...
Write and mail someone a letter/card each week.
Done!  I am enjoying these few minutes each week, returning to the good ol' days of pen and paper communication!  Try it sometime for brings happiness to your day.
Make a new recipe at least once a week.
Made a 7 Layer Taco Dip last night for dinner...I always seem to make a variation to the recipe.  No one likes black olives around our house, so I omitted them, but added shredded lettuce.  7 layers are 7 layers, no matter what the layers are, right?  :)
Part 2 of Proverbs 31...verses 17 & 27
"She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks...She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness."
An attitude check continues to make improvements in my daily choices.  Things are getting done more quickly and with a happier heart because I'm focusing on pleasing God more than the task itself.  It has made a difference.


  1. Janet Rose, you just made me hungry for nachos, LOL! I am trying to make one new recipe a month.

    I tried one this week, with hamburger and noodles & tomatoes & cheese in the beanpot but I wasn't thrilled with it. Sigh. I'll try it again.

    Good progress on your goals!


  2. Wow, these are fabulous goals and you are doing fantastic meeting them!

    Can I just insert how much I appreciate the pen and paper correspondence? Whether I am the sender or the receiver...there is just something so nice about paper mail.

  3. A new recipe a week sounds fun. I love trying new recipes, but haven't done the necessary planning lately.

  4. Wow - that sounds like a yummy recipe!! I might have to try that :) Great progress on your goals.

  5. Janet, Thanks so much for dropping by....and I love your goals and accomplishments! I can't wait to finish 'organizing' so I can move on to a few of the things you are working on!

    BTW, I'm in GA, too! Just north of the ATL. Are you attending GHEA in May?

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
