This week’s Thimble List

I’m going to try to make creating a Thimble List a weekly thing here at the blog.  I hope you will too.  If you aren’t familiar with a Thimble List, I blogged about it here.

Simple things to do this week that make me happy….

1.  Ride my bicycle almost every day.

2. Fit art/painting into my schedule just for practice.

3. Try some new recipes for healthy, low calorie meals

4.  Visit the library and find some great books.

5.  Start reading a new novel.

6.  Shop at Trader Joe’s for some good organic food.

7.  Spend time with a couple girlfriends for good conversation, laughter and togetherness.

What’s on your thimble list for this week?  If you don’t have one, I suggest you consider writing one…it’s good to make lists!

  1. I love reading your thimble lists….I should do the same!
    Have you heard of “green monsters”? They are healthy shakes that incorporate organic spinach into them…..supposedly the fruit tastes mask the spinach…..I’m going to get up the nerve to try one this week….just need to shop. Are you game?


    1. Ew….I’m not sure Tammy…lol….did you get that recipe out of Gorgeously Green on a Diet? I was reading that book today and she had some organic-y stuff in there you can whip up. I think I’ll let you taste it and let me know…how’s that sound? But thats a great thing to put on YOUR Thimble List, lol…
