Photo of the Day: Abandoned Goal

I took this photo three years ago during a visit to my husband’s grandfather’s farm just after he passed away. It’s such a beautiful, peaceful place. It certainly doesn’t feel like it’s been three years; yet so much has changed during that time.

Check out the original blog post to see a few more photos of the gorgeous farm.

Day 59: Climbing to new heights

The local Y is having a Mt. Everest challenge from February to mid-March. Different types of exercise are worth so many feet, and the goal is to “climb” to the summit. For example, 30 minutes of running is the equivalent of climbing 1000 feet. My personal goal was to reach the top within a month, and yesterday I made it! I’m flag number nine, and it looks like I’m about the tenth person to finish. I love reaching goals! I think I even get a free Y towel.
