2017 Goals Week 19

9) Practice 12 spiritual disciplines.

For the rest of May, I will be translating and meditating on the book of Matthew.

Half-way done.

7)   Connect with one person a week.

I’m hibernating.

5)    Learn how to needle felt and create 25 sculptures. 


From the waist upwards he was like a man, but his legs were shaped like a goat’s (the hair on them was glossy black) and instead of feet he had a goat’s hoofs. He also had a tail, but Lucy did not notice this at first because it was neatly caught up over the arm that held the umbrella so as to keep it from trailing in the snow. He had a red woollen muffler round his neck…he was a faun. – The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Mr. Tumnus is almost complete. I ordered white-white wool to make snow for his base, and I have to figure out how to make an umbrella for him. I also started on the armature for a Mary, Joseph and Jesus trio. I have 10 sculptures complete so far.

4)    Complete 12 house/yard projects. 

3)    Move at least 15 minutes a day.


Chinook Bend Natural Area was a short 20 minute walk in Carnation. I needed on excuse to visit Carnation’s Tolt Yarn and Wool, and I had spotted this the week prior on an jaunt to a local farm. I consider this a walk, not a hike.

Twice last week I walked up a gravel road to the top of the hill behind our house. The view is so pretty of our valley from there. I was surprised the first time by a flock of sheep with half-a-dozen lambs “mbaa-ing” at me. They followed me a ways down the road from behind their fence. I’ve been back to visit them 2 times since!

2)   Fix my teeth. 

1)  Hike to 12 new places.

January: Hike to Twin Falls.

May: Climb Little Si.
