2015 in Review and Goals for 2016

How did I do on my goals for 2015? I did pretty well until July and then I sort of fell off the face of the world and didn't do much. I'm not really sure what happened, but I just hit a wall or something.

So without any more ado, here were my goals for 2015:

  • Write at least 9000 words/month (averages to 300 words/day)
  • Sculpt at least 12 babies
  • Tat at least 24 crosses
  • Sew at least 24 sock monkeys
  • Knit 9 hats
  • Exercise at least 20 days/month
  • Read through at least the New Testament 

And here is how I did:

  • Wrote 44,646 words (averaged about 121 words per day for the year)
  • Sculpted 6 babies
  • Tatted 18 crosses and 6 new flower/vine design bookmarks
  • Sewed 5 sock monkeys
  • Knit 14 hats
  • Exercised 6 out of 12 months (20 days per month)
  • Read through the New Testament and Proverbs

So some things I did more, some I did less, and some I did what I hoped for.

For 2016, I'd like to keep most of my goals from 2015, with a few changes

  • Write at least 9000 words/month (averages to 300 words/day)
  • Sculpt at least 12 babies
  • Tat at least 12 crosses
  • Sew at least 12 sock monkeys
  • Knit 9 hats
  • Exercise at least 20 days/month
  • Read at least 5 minutes a day in the Bible, plus in devotional books
  • Write up at least 4 backlog book reviews a month
  • Post more than book reviews on my blog and within 2 weeks of the event I'm blogging about happened

Wow! Your goals are impressive and exhaust me just to read them! Amazing lady!

Last year my goal was to concentrate on the word trust...spiritually. I didn't do as well as I would have liked, but I do think I focused more on trusting God.

This year my goal is to focus on prayer. I want my prayer life to be more substantial.

That's enough for me to handle!! Grin!

Love you,
AM
