September … A New Month and a New List!

This picture was taken this morning, September 1, 2013 on my drive to yoga class!  It was a spectacular view and I stopped to capture what I knew would be a fleeting cloud formation.   Just as fleeting was August, which is now behind me and September has rolled in to provide an opportunity for a fresh start and a new list of Twenty-seven Things!  I feel good about the things I did in August.  September’s list is similar in many ways but I’ve added a few more specific health related challenges.  Making the commitment to do something a certain number of days really helps me keep on track.  Yoga is one of those things and although I didn’t identify a specific number of my list, I do have a number of yoga classes I want to take this month and this morning’s class was a terrific start!   I also committed to a certain number of days where I plan to reach my 10,000 step goal.  Finally, because my husband has asked me to resume making smoothies in the morning, I have committed to do that for at least 12 days this month.  I think I’ll surpass that number but that is the minimum!

We will be vacationing in Washington D.C. this month and I really want to keep a travel journal and so I have put that on my list as well.   If it is on my list, I will get it done which is really the purpose of my Twenty-seven Things!

Today, September 1st is a wonderful Sunday, partly because I know I don’t have work tomorrow (holiday) and so it feels like a gift of another Saturday!  I’m relaxing, updating my blog, looking at Pinterest recipes to try, and getting ready for a golf game this afternoon with Morris and friends.   I have started a new book, The Round House by Louise Erdrich, just having finished her book, The Painted Drum this morning.  The Round House will be one of my September fiction books, along with the audio book, Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese.

So I am off to enjoy the rest of the day!  September holds so much promise and I am looking forward to visiting Washington D.C.  Here’s to a new list of Twenty-seven Things!  Cheers!
