A New Challenge for Myself...
After nearly a month of not feeling well, then weeks of pressing on with my writing project, I feel as if I've really slacked off on the house and my health. So I'm starting a new challenge today; I'm calling it the "Back on Track" challenge. (Okay, I guess weeks of writing a kids' devotional book with a railroad theme has taken its toll.) I want to get back on track with:
* Bible study (though I've kept up with daily Bible reading and prayer times and have studied for these devotional writings and my Sunday School lessons, there hasn't been time for any other study.)
* Health & energy -- eating right, exercising, walking, drinking enough water, getting enough sleep, etc.
* Homemaking -- keeping up with routines and zones a la FlyLady, and continuing to declutter as I go.
* Nurturing creativity -- as important to me as breathing. I want to do more with my writing and spend more time with decorating and craft projects.
Since it ostensibly takes 3 weeks to build a new habit, my challenge will go until May 17. Anyone care to join in? You may have other areas you prefer to work on, or maybe you want to choose one or more of these.

I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
