I had an awesome day yesterday. :) It started with a walk through the Botanic Gardens with my mum. We both took our cameras and wandered around snapping away.
We finally stopped for a coffee and relaxed in the shade watching the ducks.
From there we stopped in at Cathy's house to pick up a gorgeous gemstone necklace and earrings that she has made for my Greatest Shave raffle. I will post a pic when I take one, but I tell you, it is stunning, :)
We spent the afternoon just hanging out at Mums trying to stay cool. It was really nice.
From there I made my way back to the city to meet Megan for a coffee. And by "coffee" I do not mean Gelati and Iced Chocolate... :) I got there a little late and when I got there Megan was NOT playing Smurfs on her iPhone... LOL
We talked, and talked, and talked. Then got up to leave and talked, and talked, and talked... LOL It was such a fun night!
Today has been pretty restful. Quick trip to Spotlight this morning but other than that, I have done pretty much nothing.
I thought I had better do a round up of my 10 for 10 challenge. I have been avoiding it as I thought I had pretty much failed, but having a look I did okay.
1) Run/walk the Mothers Day Classic in May
Done. Ran the 4km in 38 minutes
2) Ride at least 3000kms
Nope. I stopped counting around the 1200 mark because it came so late in the year and I was injured so I knew I wouldn’t get there.
3) Finish the knitted blankets
Done. I finished in September.
4) Lose 30 kilos
I only lost 2.…
5) Be in a financial position to sponsor a World Vision child
Done - we have a 3 year old sponsor child from India.
6) Send at least one childrens story to a publisher
Actually I sent 2 off, one of them to 2 publishers. Both rejected, but at least I was brave enough to send them.
7) Run/walk the 12 km at the City-Bay in September
Nope - I was injured
8) Start my novel
Well and truly started. I am up to about chapter 8.
9) Go on an overnight hike (first stage of Heyson if funds permit)
Cancelled as I was injured. Tentatively re-booked for May 2011
10) Keep in touch with my interstate friends in the old fashioned way - by writing actual letters with pen and paper.
Sent a couple of letters.
Not a bad effort. Next week I will be posting my 11 goals for 2011. :)
100 Days of Gratitude
Yesterday I was grateful for a great day. Everythig was brilliant and I was just generally grateful.
Today I am grateful for chocolate. No particulr reason other than I love it and feel grateful it was invented. LOL
