Feb 3 has rolled right into view! Happy Birthday to my favorite daughter tomorrow Feb. 4th!! We enjoyed a great weekend with her and her husband, grandson and his family - especially little great-grandson Grayson!
So thought I would wrap-up January for you - and give you Henningsen Highlights . . .
What I did . . .
Purchased some extra clothes to take on our upcoming trip to the sunny and hopefully
warm Dominican Republic!
Purchased a new pair of glasses and sunglasses! Much needed as my prescription had
changed drastically. Good news though that my eyes are very healthy!
Developed a tooth ache and so now I have begun the final stage of dental work that will
give me very nice - healthy teeth and a smile I can be proud of. See this old post for
the beginning of this project!
Decided to create "prayer flags" for those in my family and friends that I want to
remember to say a special prayer for. Check out Tami's post at Just One More Thing
on how to create those. Wonderful thing about them - - - each one is unique - no rules -
no wrong way to do a prayer flag. Coming soon . . . my first prayer flag for our youngest
Sent our son Todd his birthday gift on January 15! A fun one - really neat when we can
find something the kids want and need - and can send it there way - - - FHSU worthy
gold and black golf bag! He loved it!
Hosted a birthday party for my dad's 79th birthday! Small crowd of 6 - - - special night.
Again this year - - - I spent a lot of the month with a huge cold - Influenza A - sinusitis -
cough that would not die - - - and a headache. I'm canceling January next year!
What I did not . . .
T & T Book Club Selection for January was up to me - and I chose that Tami and I would
each pick a book of our liking and then blog about it - - - I intend to blog about it after I
finish it - - - but alas - - - I didn't get as much read - - - and I blame that on not being able
to see very well!! And not having a great "reading corner" - - - need to fix that - - - glasses
are paid for and sitting on my face - - - so not an excuse anymore.
WALK ... EAT RIGHT ... - - - ENOUGH SAID.
Avon Valentine Open House - - - plans were made - - - invitations written out - - - life
got in the way . . . Actually it was planned for February - so could still be accomplished
but as I said - - - other things have come before this - - - so I will look forward to a Lucky
Leprechaun Avon Open House or a Step Into Spring Avon Open House - - - .
That's my first month of 2014 in a wrap-up. Some goals were accomplished - and some not.
My plans for Feb will include as mentioned above - prayer flags - reading - dental work - trip
and saying goodbye to 10 pounds (again).
This year I have chosen not to feel despair at projects not done - weight not lost - house not cleaned and other tasks left incomplete - - - just move on with prayer and hope for a good month ahead!
Want to share your pluses and minuses for the month of January! Feel free to comment here!
P.S. Started February off with a wonderfully hosted Super Bowl Party at Dave and Tami's house in Nebraska. Although our team didn't win - we had a great relaxing evening with good food, fun entertainment, some crafting and zentangle lessons, and best of all - dear family! Perfect way to start a new month!
