Welcome to Playful Meaderings, WordPress blog, a sharing place to air my thoughts about books, travel, humor, spirituality, Nevada, family and the people who influence me. I invite your comments and l want learn more about you, too. I am not championing a cause or a lifestyle, just imparting meanderings to aid in a more positive life.
My 2012 New Year’s Resolution was to read 75 books in one year (see first post, “Hello World”) while working full-time at a food bank, teaching Sunday School, geeking out on ancestry researching, keeping up with our two teenage daughters, two dogs, one mucho crazy cat and one saint of a husband. By the end of the year I read 84 books — Woot! Along the way, I have come to the realization how much I love reading, how books intertwine with my life, and how reading helps me chill out.
I was delighted to be Freshly Pressed in August of this year. The topic was the 1/2-way mark of mark of my reading challenge. You can read the post here.
For 2013, I am challenging myself to keep up the reading (fun!) while making more and better efforts to invite people in to share our lives. What does that mean? Right now I envision being more spontaneous. Meeting up with friends, reaching out in all situations to make new friends, being more open to a fuller life.
What influences you and how are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions? Love to hear from you!
