  1. Congratulations on the blogger away. That's awesome. I love your list! Here's another to add to it. www.muchcheaperthantherapy.blogspot.com

    There's a great inspirational post there right now for setting goals, etc.

    And confession, Wendy... I haven't walked in two days. However, I did go to work, get 4 loads of laundry, a trip to the post office, grocery shopping, linen changes, dinner made AND 26 pages written during that time so I guess I'm not such a slacker. OH, and I lost 2 pounds because I've been SOOOO good on my diet. That prints me up to just shy of 12. Over the holidays at that! Yay for me.

  2. blogger AWARD, not blogger AWAY. Sheesh, and I'm supposed to be a writer. *sheepish grin*

  3. Thanks for the "blog award"! And I love your winter house pictures! Beautiful house! And real snow!
