Week 1 of 3in30

Well, this week has gone pretty well with my new goals for August. I am so excited about my progress so far.
I have sewed some on my quilt project so I am very hopeful on that goal. Here is a picture of the quilt. It is for my sister in law and her birthday was last month that is why it is on my goal list so she can actually get her birthday present...LOL
My second goal was to declutter for 15 mins each day and I have been doing really well with this. I did my laundry room this week, cleaned out the fridge, took everything off the top of it and cleaned....I haven't seen that in I can't tell you how long. I cleaned the oven and microwave as well. In my laundry room, I can't tell you how long it has been since I seen the top of the dryer....you know how all the things you find in the washer go there, like change, chapstick, left over socks with no matches, lint, and such things. Now, I can actually get into the laundry room...LOL.
My third goal was to get this body moving. I went out and purchased a Leslie Sansone walking video this week and I have been using it. I can't believe how much that video gets your heart moving. Crazy. I weighed myself today and I am down 2 pounds from last week so YEA me!!!
I also have been doing the challenge of reading the bible in 90 days and I have to say this is day 26 and I have now read 17% of the bible. It has now become a habit to get up and read when I first wake up, I can not tell you how much I love this time with the Lord. Now, I have always spent time in His Word each day, but I haven't started reading the bible from start to finish like this before. I love how much I am learning about why we needed Jesus. It has raised some questions in me as well. Like how the people didn't run out of animals to sacrafice? They had to kill a bunch of animals....and they never ran out. Why the Israelites kept turning from God, even though He provided for them at every turn? How silly men can be for listening to those crazy women that led them down to distruction? Anyway, it has been so enjoyable each day.
My hubby comes home next week for a visit and I am so excited. This year has been rough with him traveling so much, but we are so grateful he has a job during a time of lay offs. My daughter is coming in this weekend from Lubbock and I get to spend some much needed mommy daughter time. I can't believe how much I miss her not being here at home. We are going to be making some domino necklaces for her friends. She has worn hers and they just love it, so we are going to make them some to suprise them. That should be tons of fun.
Talk at you all soon!
