November is one of my favorite times of the year. The fall scenery is just breathtaking in my little piece of this world. But this November holds a first for me, a book signing. Am I a little nervous?  Yes. Questions whirl in my mind. What if no one shows up?  Suppose I can't remember how to spell anyone's name, (I have been know to forget what I was doing as I was doing it.)  Having a book signing is stepping out of my comfort zone. I have decided that I will persevere and make it through this new adventure of signing my John Hancock to a book.  Except now, I wished I had used a shorter name.

I will be signing books in Trussville, AL on Saturday, November 21st from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Heavenly Handmade Treasures Event. Located at 6644 Roper Road at Trussville Southside Baptist Church. For additional information go to Heavenly Handmade Treasures Event on Facebook.

Stepping Out Of My Comfort Zone

Hello everyone, it's been a while. After taking a long break this summer, I have came back to my monthly blogging refreshed and ready to write. Following a last minute trip to the mountains of Tennessee, I am finally ready to embrace fall. The trip also made me grasp the need to go out of my comfort zone. While I have always been shy, I realize that I have never been an adventurous person, always playing everything safe or refusing to step out of my desired zone. After witnessing this from my son, who is even shyer than myself, I decided that he and I needed a push to socialize more. So starting this week, we're both going to step out of our cocoons and see what the world brings us. Who knows, we might even become mountain climbers.

What a long winter, we have been plagued by walking pneumonia, the flu and bronchitis the last few months that curtailed my goals. But now I feel wonderful and thankful that the winter months have passed and the sleeping spring flowers have finally woken. The sunshine has revived me. I have lost fourteen pounds and will continue on the desired path of losing more. I must confess my house, became some what of a mess while we struggled with various illnesses, but now I am eager to get back to organizing and redoing my closets. So remember if you have any setbacks on your New Year's goals, it's okay.  Just pick up where you left off and continue forward.

A Time To Start Over

Well, well, January is here, my least favorite month of the year.  I'm not a fan of wintertime anyway and all the sickness that comes along with the winter month makes me cringe. But January is also a time to start over, a time to set new goals for your life.

So on this first day of January, I'm setting myself some new goals. To get healthy, I've lost six pounds recently in a month by eating healthy and every 3-4 hours. This is supposed to keep your metabolism up. So I will continue this January and see if I lose some additional weight. Second, to memorize a Bible verse every month. Third, to exercise at least three times a week. Fourth, to study some grammar techniques to help with my writing. Finally the last goal is to try to organize more of my house.

Now the hard part, putting each of the goals into action. Wish me luck.

Tell me in the comments below what your goals are for the new year?

So as I end this blog, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and I hope everyone has good health, happiness, and God's blessings for the next year.
