Personal Goals

1. Read at least 20 books. 
I have read 2 books this month. I read Kurt Vonnegut's Hocus Pocus, this took me some time. Normally I devour Vonnegut, but I could not get into the swing of things with this one. I also read Stories: All New Tales. Lots of short stories by some of my favorite authors like Neil Gaiman and Chuck Palahniuk, but also introduced me to some new to me authors too. I enjoyed it. 

2. Complete 4 home improvement projects.
I have completed one project.

3. Grow an herb garden. 
This one should be starting soon.

4. Be nice to the sailor. 
We celebrated our ten year anniversary this month, so we were a little annoying with all the lovey dovey stuff. 

5. Blog at least 15 posts a month.
Nailed it!

Edited to add walking failure

The Walking Resolution

So far this year I have walked 34 miles. This is above the American average weekly, but I want to do better. My mini goal of walking 20 miles in March was not quite met when I only walked 14 miles. I am hopeful with warmer weather on its way, I can get on top of this.
