30 in 30: An update

Well, I’m a third of the way through my 30 in 30 goals. Let’s see how we’re doing so far, shall we?

1-Read a classic novel. I have finished 7 chapters of Pride and Prejudice. I probably would have finished it by now had it not been for Season One of Modern Family consuming most of my evenings.

2-Run 30 miles (not all at once!) Miles run thus far: 0. Miles walked: 1. Not sure if we’re gonna get through this one.

3-Learn how to play a new hymn on the piano. Realizing I’m failing miserably so far, I choose a simple, 2-lined hymn: #137, Testimony.

4-Start a journal for my girls. Nothing yet.

5-Read a church book (suggestions?) Nada.

6-Sew an article of clothing for me that I will actually wear. Have not started yet. Although I have picked out something to make: Circle Skirt from Made.

7-Send a handwritten letter to a friend. Not yet. Haven’t even decided who the lucky recipient is yet!

Yikes. Guess I better step it up!

Instead of Testimony try Sweet Hour of Prayer (unless you already play that one.) My husband teaches piano and starts the kids out on that one when they're ready to start playing hymns. Good Luck!

Weird--I'm reading P&P and watching season 1 of Modern Family. Watched the whole first disc of it last night. SO FUNNY!
