HEALTHY HABITS FOR DECEMBER:  Drink more water/get more sleep/limit sugar/walking


  1. Wow, your list is fantastic.
    Healthy Habits is a ditto here.

  2. 😁 'Tis a busy month! Take time to enjoy it. Those brisk walks when the aroma of the pine and fir mingle will be special. If it weren't so cold and rainy, I'd be tempted. As it is, I'm off to the cemetery to make sure the Christmas baskets have not blown over or worse, blown away. I'm pretty sure that I'll smell Christmas.

  3. That's a good list!

    I received the card I purchased from your Etsy shop yesterday. It is darling!

    1. Oh, I am so thankful the card arrived safely and that you are pleased with it. I hope your mom enjoys it!

  4. You have a very ambitious list of goals for December. I hope that you are able to achieve them in accordance with God's plans for your month! I find that when I make extensive lists and goals, God usually finds something else for me to do instead and my goals go out the window. But then I realize that His ways are better than my ways, and I am thankful that He takes time to lead me. My part is to listen and follow. Not always easy. But your goals are very positive goals that I am sure God would be pleased to help you with. Please let us know how it goes!
