Top HaHeWi for January 2014

Wow! What a week! How did you cope with the polar vortex?

The Deuce is finally going back to school tomorrow after being out last Friday and three days this week due to the winter conditions. Louisiana does not play ever since Katrina. If it looks like, feels like, smells like bad weather conditions…everything gets shut down. And thank goodness it did. Did you see the madness in Atlanta? In the four years that I lived there, it snowed at least once every year. Don’t get me started on when I lived in Indianapolis and Detroit. It has to be really bad for anything to shut down there. But they salt and shovel the roads to minimize problems. I don’t miss that at all!

True to form, we Cajuns here in Louisiana are referring to our slushy white stuff as SNEAUX. Here are some pics of how it looked at my house…

So…what is HaHeWi?

For my longtime BAW readers, you may remember when I posted tips on things to do to be (Ha)ppier, (He)althier, and (Wi)ser and called them HaHeWi Tips. As I mentioned in my 1 Year Blogiversary post, I’ll be doing a monthly reflection of things I accomplished with these traits.





The biggest HaHeWi of January for me was celebrating my 1 year Blogiversary. I started Being A Wordsmith on a whim and I am so glad I stuck with it. I am very proud of what I have created and continue to nurture. It has given me a huge network of support and motivated me to publish my novel, Acting On Her Behalf.

This month I began a new monthly feature on the blog called Rewind Repost. I do an update on a previous post. You can read that here.

I added an Instagram icon to the site and started using this form of social media more. I had to do a Google search for Instagram for Dummies. That’s how clueless I was about it. 

I received an ALL CLEAR from my annual PET Scan. Yay!

Hubby and I had an awesome date night at our first Mardi Gras Ball. You can read more about that here.
