WOW it is June 15th. Trust me that old saying that the older we get, the faster time goes is true. Not only did June get here, but the rain stopped (finally) and it is hot.
I am reading over my May goals and feel pretty good considering how busy the month was with things not on my goal list, and finishing up school with lots of subbing while teachers were using up their last vacation days. I am excited what I did get done, and not focusing on the things I did not. Setting goals is working, and when I miss one or two I just move them to the next month.
So here is how I fared in May with my goals, and I my planned June goals. I feel retired again with school out and the phone not ringing to sub although it has rang at least three or four times a day with solicitors – you know the IRS, a free emergency phone system or hearing aids for the older generation like me.
I had this post almost ready to post on June 8th (my birthday), but on June 9th as I was headed to bed I broke a glass in my right hand and cut two fingers deeply and spent hours in the ER getting 15 stitches. Needles to say I am not sure I will get those June goals accomplished because I can barely type right now, but I am leaving them in hopes I can get some of them finished.
With much excitement and anticipation for the month of June here goes:
Five-Minute daily devotion on Acts – First-Five App – Stay caught up and not get behind. (Completed)
Complete 5 Habits of a Girl That Doesn’t Quit. (Completed)
See that coffee cup. I need to PRAY MORE and WORRY LESS. I have a whole lot on my heart this month, and I know I’ll be calling out Lord to God and on my knees this month. I already have.
Five-Minute Daily Devotion on Acts – First-Five App – Stay caught up and not get behind. Finish Acts and begin Numbers on June 6th. Oops it is June 6th today. (It’s June 15th and I can’t write so I am already behind on Numbers and Acts had a couple of days to finish.)
Begin Bible study at church on June 8 (Happy Birthday to me). It’s called The Best Yes by Lysa TerKeurst. I’ve done it before as a volunteer team leader for Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies, and I can not wait to do it with my church family. (I attended on June 8th but again I am behind because I can’t write in my workbook, and we were out-of-town today so I missed the video.)
Begin the Bible Study The Husband Project by Kathy Lipp with Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies on June 20.
Walks in the neighborhood with both the boys, and yes continue snuggling on the sofa with my husband. Total success and we also had a Dairy Queen night with my mother-in-law, and a trip to South Texas and a trip to the Animal Safari with my son, daughter-in-law and grandson.

Mini-trip with my daughter, son-in-law and grandson.
Fishing Tournament with our son, daughter-in-law and grandson.
Family Reunion with my husband’s family. Can’t wait.
Wear pedometer (7,000 steps a day), Exercise 3-4 days a week, eat healthier, walk the boys at least twice and plan one week of meals. Lose 2 pounds. This one was a success also. So proud of myself because most days I walked more that 7,000 steps and many of them were up to 12,000 steps. I am eating healthier and guess what I lost those 2 pounds. Now if I can keep them off.

Have lunch/coffee with a friend. I am sad to say I didn’t meet a friend for lunch or coffee in May. I just could not work it in my schedule, but I did talk on the phone to one for a very long time while driving to my blogging weekend six hours away.
Be The Blessing – OK I am going out on a limb here because it is June 6th and my birthday is in two days. This year I am 66. It seems impossible. I wish I was 30 and knowing all I do now, but we don’t get do overs. Anyway two days from now if I can get it all organized I want to be a blessing and give 66 things. I was up until 1:00 this morning making a list of 66 things and I have not been able to come up with that many, but maybe my friends and family can help. (Did it and it was great.) (Here is my planned post. I haven’t been able to write about all the wonderful things that happened.)
Would you join me on my blog post for my birthday and share how you have performed a random act of kindness. Here is my post on that.
Clean the front flower beds and mulch them. Trim azaleas. TOTAL FAILURE but we did get one flower bed cleaned. The rain was just too much and we could not get out when we were home to do them, and if we could we had to mow between the storms.
Clean the front flower beds, mulch them and trim all fifteen azaleas.
Clean out winter clothes. Bring summer clothes downstairs.
Clean out make-up drawer.
(I am not sure any of the house goals will happen.)
Continue to pray about where my emphasis should be. So many questions on my heart right now as to how I should proceed. (Still no firm answers)
Lesson 2 – Blogging Course. Review and clean-up my first 15 blogs. Failure
Linky Page – Complete cleaning it up. I worked on it, but it’s not finished. I’m hoping to finish it up the second week in June.
Attend Blogging Gathering with friends in Louisiana. I did get to attend the gathering. It was a six-hour trip by myself driving both ways, but I had a whole lot of time to talk and I called a lady I used to work with, and we talked for 45 minutes. Helped on that lonesome road when there was no traffic and nothing to see.
