31. Get a good set of pots and pans

This is my mom. One of the most generous people I know. These are my new stainless steel pots and pans. I LOVE them. I've been wanting to go all stainless steel for years now - but there was always some other pressing expense.

Most of what I have had was teflon coated. I began to feel uncomfortable using those years ago due to the toxic particles that it lets off. Here are some websites that speak to the dangers:

Anyway, back to the point. My sweet mother gave me this beautiful (and safe) set of stainless steel for my birthday this year...hence I get to check it off my list. Stay tuned to my other blog, Simply Your Life for a post on how I organized them. Which was just about as exciting as getting them.

7. Memorize More Scripture

I do not memorize things well. Never have (always been a terrible test taker) and most likely never will. I've tried posting index cards around the house. Didn't work. I've tried memorizing with a friend. Didn't work. So, here's yet another attempt to memorize more of God's word.

I did a post on my other blog, Simplify Your Life, about my "daily docket" or my to dos for each day. It's the picture above. On the top right corner of the sheet, I have a Scripture Memory section. I write it out every day, which will help me memorize it. I'm on verse 1, but so far I am doing a better job of remembering the verse (well, at least the general idea of it) than I have in the past.

So, I'm checking this one off. Yes, I know it's probably a little premature. But, I haven't checked anything off in a while and I'll be honest. I need to check something off. So, off it goes and onto the next thing on my list.
