    Okay, let's see...

    ~ finish baby charity quilt tops. I seem to be getting a lot of quilts out of a little Safeway bag of scraps. Moral of story: be careful what you pray for. I asked God to help me make efficient use of those scraps, and he isn't disappointing me. Though I am getting tired of the same old pattern...

    ~ Finish the Majic Tile quilt

    ~ Finish the blue and orange strip quilt

    ~ walk 30 minutes a day

    ~ switching to organic foods gradually

    ~ try to nurture myself daily

    ~ redo affirmations

    ~ sort through Bourne's books on anxiety and come up with three things to do this month to improve my health.

    ~ plan and execute a spring picnic/bike hike towards the end of the month.

    ~ have dd#1 and her dh over for supper Easter...ham dinner and fixings.

    ~ Finish Serendipity Bible study on 1 John and Galatians.

    ~ Finish reading through Proverbs.

    ~ check to see if ISBN is still good on manuscript. Find a bar code for the back of the book.

    ~ free stitching, quilting and rug hooking groups.

    ~ knit sweater.

    ~ rug hooking: finish trivet. Finish piano bench cover. Finish hollyhock rug. Stay tuned! That's a lot to do in one month on it's own.

    That's all I can think to do. That's more than enough. I suspect I'll read a couple of books off my reading list as well.

    Default How's everyone doing on their April Goals?

    Here's my update:

    Health
    Continue to work on posture - working on it
    Lose 4 pounds - done, plan to lose 2 more before the end of the month

    Spiritual
    Maintain bible-reading and prayer habits - this has really slipped and needs some major work!

    Financial
    Acheive at least 18 no-spend days this month - I have 10 so far

    Hobby
    Work on quilt at least 40 hours this month - I've done about 30 hours already

    Garden
    Have dh rototill garden just prior to planting - will ask him to do this this week or next

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new to this site but, I just love it! The challenges are so encouraging. We are becoming even more frugal. Our friends think we're nuts and the extended family fears our frugal conversations. So, I know we are on the right track!

    These are the goals for April

    Only gas charges on the CCs. and pay them off as they come in.
    Lower the propane/electric bill. (electric came in lower. Propane gal price was higher than last bill but, we used less propane than this time last year. So, the bill was less.)
    Max our blanket/emergency savings. Reaching for 10,000. by fall.
    Increase our garden.
    Lower the grocery bill.
    No food waste.
    Exercise daily
    Drink more water
    De-Clutter a room a week. Craft room was week 1, Laundry room week 2, Apartment is week 3
    Find no cost ways to have family fun.

    Health
    Continue to work on posture - working on it
    Lose 4 pounds - lost five!

    Spiritual

    Financial
    Acheive at least 18 no-spend days this month - achieved, but just barely

    Hobby
    Work on quilt at least 40 hours this month - done

    Garden
    Have dh rototill garden just prior to planting - done
    Plant garden around the 15th - postponed to May 15th for a variety of reasons
