January felt like it lasted forrrr-evvvverrr.  I am thankful that the calendar page finally turned and we get to move onto new.

Looking back at my January goals:

1. Finish four books.  Yep.  I finished six.  Woohoo!  This is a solid start for my reading goal for the year.  I read After I Do, Underground Railroad, Miller's Valley, The Nightingale, Notes From a Blue Bike and French Milk.  My favorite of these was The Nightingale with Underground Railroad coming in at a close second.  They were not easy books to digest - content wise - but they were both really well written and captivating.

2. Walk a minimum of 300,000 steps.  Nope.  Not even close.

3.  Do a major toy / kid stuff purge and sort.  Progress / As good as it's going to get for a while.  I threw out a couple toys, donated a few others and moved a small pile to the basement.  And then, it seemed good enough for now.  We'll see if I feel re energized to tackle this after birthday season.    

4.  Finalize a "January through March Family Bucket List" and make progress on crossing things off the list.  Done.

And onto February goals:

1.  Finish four books.  I currently have three books started.  I'm not very far into any of them, but I'm guessing that this goal should be pretty easily met by mid-month.

2.  Do my first two pre-half marathon long training walks.  I would like to do a four miler and a five miler (averaging 15 minute miles) during the last two weeks of this month.  (I also plan to do several two and three mile walks throughout the month.)

3. Daily devotions and related journaling throughout the month.  I don't expect that I will be perfect and get this done every single day, but I would like to get back into the habit of doing devotions on a regular basis.

Note: Pretty calendar by 1Canoe2 belongs to my sister.   Thanks, Pril.
