    I like scrapbooking, watching tv, Internet, baking, taking care of my pets, cleaning, reading, gardening and being outside when weather permits. uploading music onto my computer.

    I like reading, journaling, watching movies, Internet, baking, taking care of my pets, cleaning, organizing my stockpile and finances, taking care of my house plants and the ones on the balcony. Taking walks when the weather is nice enough.

    Hiya,

    I like do laundry, reading, watching movies, playing on Internet, baking, taking care of my pets, playing games or crafts with my son, cleaning the house and organizing everything, playing wii fit. Going out in the yard just check on my garden or clean up the yard, going in the pool, or just sit out by the fire pit and talking to the hubby or the neighbors.

    With gas price gooooooooooiiiiiiinnnnnggg up every other day I began making a list of things to do around the house this summer, for my son and me so that we don't get to bored with what already do during a week...

    Luckily DH and I are homebodies. We do a lot of work on our house. I enjoy cooking, gardening, reading, surfing the internet, decorating and just hanging out with DH and the cats.

    Everything around here is so crowded that going out is just stressful. My home is my haven.

    I love being at home. Hubby says he has to use dynamite to get me out sometimes.

    Gardening
    Reading
    Writing
    Photography
    Decorating
    Art
    Cooking
    Walking
    Playing with dog
    Internet chats with friends and family
    Internet research
    Bible study
    Crafting/scrapbooking
    Some TV, not a lot, maybe 4-6 hours a week.
    Listening to music.
    Doing silly dances that no one can see.
    And yes, I find a certain joy in cleaning. I like the sense of calm and orderliness in a sparkling clean house.
    Watching sunsets (forget the sunrises!)
    Listening to the birds
    Croquet
    Gathering around the firepit
    Woodworking with hubby

    God has really blessed me with what I have right here!
    Spiritual:
    "You are fearfully and wonderfully made." Please... respect life.

    Financial:
    Debt free, hoping to stay that way!

    1. Keep on writing.
    2. Get some balance in my life.
    3. Lose weight. Hopefully 20# this year.
    4. Continue to be looking for how God wants to use me this year.
