Goals and Resolutions 2014

I just realized that I forgot to post goals and resolutions last year. Here are some for this year:

  • Traverse 1000 miles in a self-powered manner. Would like to do more walking this year than biking, but however I get there, at least I'll get there. 
  • Spend (at LEAST) the first 1000 hours of 2014 junk-food free. This will be hard, but is doable.
  • Delete Twitter/Facebook from my phone. I realized I was spending far too much time being out, but not in the moment, it was making me sad. No more. (This is already DONE!)
  • My big one is to do something creative every day, and no wasting time on the internet till this is done. Blogging is creative - reading is not. 
What about you? Other than DeeMotivation 2014, do you have goals for this year? Please share, we can all work together to make our lives the best they can be!

Jacksonville - 1 day, 3 lifers

We (HFC David and I) took a trip up to Jacksonville to see the Snowy owl. If you didn't GOYB to join us, here's what you missed:

 First up: The star of the day, a magnificent snowy owl, sitting right out on the beach. I also got some nice video of her. Although this wasn't my life snowy owl, it was my first really good look at one.
The little one-legged guy on the far left is my life purple sandpiper.
 This is my life Harlequin duck.
My life Black Scoter.
This made me really sad. It was the second one-legged bird of the day, a ruddy turnstone who got caught up in string or fishing line. You can see his dessicated foot still tangled in the line. Poor little guy :-(

But other than the hurt bird, it was a great day birding. We got a lot of walking in on the beach especially as we were looking for a Snow Bunting which we never did find. But, we had an awesome time trying anyway.

Remember, you can see lot of cool stuff on the internet, but you can only experience it if you GOYB and join us on an outing!
