Setting Goals - Planners and Calendars

Its a New Year!   What are your Goals?  

Do you use a Day Planner?  Or..a Calendar on your Phone for your Appointments and Reminders?   I use both of these.  They help to remind me of my daily tasks, Birthdays, and Appointments.  

 Here is a photo of my Day Planner that I bought a couple of years ago. 




 There are several features that I like about this Planner :  Monthly and Weekly pages, Address list, Birthday pages, Clear ziploc type page to keep notes in, and a handy pen loop on the side of the Planner.

What are your Goals for 2016?


My Goals include to exercise more, eat healthier, finish some books that I have started, and to post often on my blog.  =)  I'm looking forward to seeing what this New Year brings!


I have added some Planners to my Amazon store

Currently Reading "Glazed Murder" by Jessica Beck


I'm currently reading "Glazed Murder" by Jessica Beck.   This is a Cozy Mystery book set in the Donut Hearts Coffee Shop in April Springs, North Carolina.

I dont like scary books, but I do like cozy mysteries.  If you have never read a Cozy Mystery -- they are less scary than a regular "mystery" book and the mysteries are "solved" by regular people ( not Policeman or Detectives, etc )

About the book:
Meet Suzanne Hart, owner and operator of Donut Hearts coffee shop in April Springs, North Carolina. After her divorce from Max, an out-of-work actor she’s dubbed “The Great Impersonator,” Suzanne decided to pursue her one true passion in life: donuts. So she cashed in her settlement and opened up shop in the heart of her beloved hometown.
But when a dead body is dumped on her doorstep like a sack of flour, Suzanne’s cozy little shop becomes an all-out crime scene. Now, everyone in town is dropping by for glazed donuts and gruesome details. The retired sheriff warns her to be careful—and they’re all suspects. Soon Suzanne—who finds snooping as irresistible as donuts—is poking holes in everyone’s alibis…
If you like Cozy Mysteries ( especially ones that feature Desserts )  - I think you will like this one!  There are currently 21 books in this series.  




Jessica Beck writes 4 different cozy mystery series.  For more about Jessica Beck and her books be sure and visit her website    jessicabeckmysteries.net
I've added a addition to my blogs sidebar in honor of Thanksgiving coming up this month!  I read a friends blog this morning,  and she had a great idea!  She added a "30 Days of Thankfulness" on her blogs sidebar, listing one item each day that she is thankful for!
I thought that was a great idea, so....I have started a list on my sidebar also.  =)

What are you Thankful for this month?
