As you may recall, I posted about my winter goals last fall/winter.
Then I posted an update to show how well I was doing and also to make myself get that butt in gear.
I did fairly well in most of the categories.
Read 10 books—Results
Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams (meh)
A Gift for a Rogue by Parks (ok)
Gypsy Rizka by Lloyd Alexander (TGR=Thumping Good Read)
Visions of Sugar Plums by Janet Evanovich (Jolly for the season)

Belly dancing and Writing—Results
I didn’t make any progress with the belly dancing, but I will get to it. Maybe over the summer.
Although I didn’t finish my short story, I did do some writing over the early spring time. I wrote some listening guides to accompany some old radio show homeschool business.
