Small Successes

Over at Faith and Family Live they do "Small Successes" on Thursdays to help moms stay encouraged by the little things.

Well, I'm not a mom yet, but that doesn't mean I don't need encouragement :).


1. I canned tomatoes using a pressure canner. Which is no small feat, considering I've had a fear of them instilled in me since I was a small child. (a la "Mamie's friend lost her whole face when her pressure cooker exploded." and similar true tales).

2. I baked my first loaf of yeast bread. Not banana bread. YEAST bread. It was tough and our jaws were sore after a few bites of endless chewing, but it's a start! I'm no longer afraid to bake bread.

3. I exercised yesterday. Inspired by this crazy post, I actually did it. OUCH. I haven't known pain like this since... well... the last time I exercised.
