2013 Homemaking Slogan

Clip art is from Microsoft.
Thanks to the twenty-five visitors who voted.  I do appreciate your taking a moment to help.   Readers overwhelmingly chose the following slogan:  "I am a Domestic Queen in 2013."  How fun!  

Last year, I had only three goals and fulfilled only one (mostly due to being ill from August to December), so I am hoping to do better this year.  Perhaps having a Domestic Queen from history--such as Queen Margaret of Scotland--to inspire me will help.

So far this year, I have made what I hope to be a sustainable weekly/daily schedule.  My monthly and yearly schedules from past years are still serviceable, but I need to take an extra hour or so of rest each day: hence, the new weekly/daily schedule that has me resting nine hours a day (including my sleep time).  

Goals for 2013

Radiant Health:   Rest nine hours each day (more challenging than it sounds); work up to exercising for forty-five minutes a day, six days per week.

The Sweet Promise:  Purchase mini-van; publish the four books I have pending; commence new classes each month (except May).

Domestic Queen:  Cull one-third of my library; give away/sell possessions exceeding ten boxes per room to make anticipated move easier.

Character Emphases: Self-Control and Diligence

Femininity:  Have some fun most days!  I am becoming a little too Agnes-y, if you know what I mean.

Reading: Re-read Bible,Confessions of St. Augustine, Pride and Prejudice, Fascinating Womanhood, and The Art of Homemaking. Read anew Following Jesus, Christian Courtship, Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero, Killing KennedyHow Children Succeed.  I'll probably pick up a few novels to round out the bunch.

I realize that some of the goals are amorphous, and perhaps that is okay at this early stage of planning. 

Agape always,

Happy New Year to you Cynthia. Thank you for sharing your 2013 goals. They are very inspiring because they are different to the usual 'list'. I like the way you have lovely-named areas to focus on. Thank you also for maintaining this blog; it is a favourite of mine. Blessings to you.
