Welcoming 2013: Making the Most of the New Year

Welcoming 2013: Making the Most of the New Year

Today is my first day in the office for 2013. I intentionally took time off over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays to step back from work, enjoy my family and clear my head. Now I’m back and ready to hit the ground running! How about you?

 

In the past I’ve never been much of a believer in writing down my goals or making them for that matter. It all seemed a little woo-woo and out there. However in 2012 I worked with a wonderful organizer and business coach Paris Love (www.parisloveinstitute.com) who convinced me of the importance of setting goals.

Meet Me at the Mistletoe Market

Meet Me at the Mistletoe Market

I feel a little bit like an elf this week as I am scurrying around finishing preparations for my booth at this weekend’s Mistletoe Market. To me it is the beginning of the holiday season here in Middle Georgia and I loved seeing all the great products everyone was selling, visiting with friends and making new ones!

For those of you who don’t live in Middle Georgia, Mistletoe Market is a Christmas marketplace sponsored by the Balvaunuca Club. The club donates their proceeds from the sale to worthy community organizations. In 2011 they gave away $40,000! This year it is being held in its new location in the Miller-Murphy-Howard building at the Georgia National Fairgrounds in Perry on November 16-18.

Bed bugs in Dodge County

Bed bugs in Dodge County

Bed bugs have become an epidemic in a number of areas of the nation, and even hit homes in Dodge, Bleckley and Pulaski counties. Though the number of bed bug cases are not as large as bigger cities, there are still some out there. Glenn and Kathy Tedders and Spence Jones, of Glenn's Pest Control in Eastman, can attest to that. In the last year, the company has had to fight at least five cases of bed bug infestation in Dodge County.

One as recently as last week.

Effective immediately, we will have signs posted at the Cochran Farmers' Market.
