Shallow Inlet - Victoria
I've been busily reviewing books for my dear friend Rel and am very excited to report I am into my 17th book for the summer. My goal is 20 by the time I go back to work. I have 8 days. Not a problem!!!
Rather than setting resolutions for the new year I read about someone who sets a theme instead. I like that idea much more than making goals that probably won't ever be accomplished. I decided our goal for the year should be "healthier" . We have discussed the idea as a family and whilst the children were miffed a time or two when I reminded them ice-creams are not healthier everyone agreed it is a good thing after all. For myself I have begun a journey with "The Maker's Diet". I read the book about 7 or 8 years ago and appreciated the Biblical perspective the author gives. Obviously there are always bits and pieces that are either impractical, impossible or inappropriate for individual circumstances and one must take a balanced view on what will work. I do remember the first phase being a challenge but worthwhile and given the holiday season excesses it is probably quite timely to spend some time detoxing from the things I have not avoided as I should have.
Meanwhile, it is good to be home.
