As the year progresses, there will be additional items to tackle as goals, but for now I will publicly post these.

  4. Those are good goals for us all. We can't change much of the world around us but we can change what we do. Good luck my Sandy.

    1. Duke,

    1. Sweet Kymber,
      I know these goals will be met this year along with others I haven't listed. Thank you for being a beautiful friend with an amazing heart. Our friendship is treasure beyond compare, not only have you reached my hand you've touched my heart. 2013 will bring the best to you, Jam and Framboise Manor. Thank you for being my friend.


  6. Excellent goals Sandy. I had to chuckle about what you're sharing publicly. That really turns up the heat! But it's good because it's motivating as well.

    1. Thank you, some are silly though, lol
      I'm glad my goals turn up the heat!!!! :-)

  7. Hey Sandy,

    I have a list, not as long as yours, mostly garden prep related. I swear, if I get the asparagus planted at the Country House I'll be happy.

    I have faith that you will accomplish all you've set out to do!

    1. Garden prep is a really good thing. I would love to plant asparagus this season but I have no more room.

      Thanks, I have more things to accomplish but I didn't publish those items.

  8. Very nice!!! I didn't see anything about plain ol fun or adventure.

    1. What fun, just joking! I have so much fun camping, fishing and hunting. Relaxing in the outdoors gives me so much pleasure.

  9. That is a very good list I think I by accident of course burnt my list when I was throwing wood in the stove.:)

    I do hope your Dad is doing well. B

    1. Maybe I should have burnt my list too, lol....

      Dad is doing better thank you. He's preparing for the next stages of his therapy.

  10. What a great list!! Thanks so much to you for you prayers and support!

    1. You're welcome, I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

      It's a small list, I have other items I just didn't list them publicly.
