31 Days of Following a Checklist

            "Like the caterpillar that will one day be transformed, our daily habits transform us." Tammy Bennett

We're on day 5 (of 31 days) using the 10 item daily checklist, and I've yet to check off every item each and every day! I can't seem to drink 8 bottles of water, or list items on Ebay.  Today IS the DAY. I am sticking with the list before all else. Once again this is my daily checklist for keeping goal oriented one check at a time:
  1. List on Ebay/Etsy
  2. Write-Tweet-Blog
  3. Exercise
  4. Dinner from Scratch
  5. Clean indoors 1/2 hour
  6. Clean outdoors 1/2 hour
  7. Drink 8 glasses of water
  8. Eat Less Fat and Sugar-more vegetables
  9. Write Down all expenses
  10. Have Meaningful Conversation
To have the satisfaction of checking each and every one of them off is on my agenda for today. Some of the items that I was able to acomplish from the list yesterday were: Write, Tweet, Blog. Made Lasagne from scratch. Vacuumed, did 4 loads of laundry, 2 loads of dishes. Drank 3 bottles of water, and had several meaningful conversations.

Today's meal will be cheesesteaks and fried potatoes. Will be riding the bike and doing crunches and push-ups. Is it sunny where you are? We are so grateful that the rain has stopped here, and that the sun is shining brightly.

Gratitude List:
  1. Our warm home
  2. Family
  3. Friends
  4. My old Bicycle
  5. Our Chickens
What are you grateful for today?


  1. I think you're doing good with your list. I'm grateful for my friends, family, and my job.

  2. My list for today:
    healthy family
    financial comfort
    slippers at work
    good coffee
