Here we are in the second week of January already! How are you doing with your goals? Written them down yet? I find when I’ve got them written down and in front of me I can focus on getting them completed!
1. Continue to monetize my blog. This is an ongoing goal. I made a start last year and plan to continue on with it this year. Part of this goal involves getting my readership up. If you enjoy reading my bog please recommend it to your friends. The more the merrier!
2. Create a cookbook. You may remember this goal was on my list last year and I finally put it aside. With making a cross country move and packing I did not have time to complete this goal. I would like to have my cookbook ready by November 2019. The recipes are there it’s just a matter of organizing the into a book!
3. Have 20 minutes of exercise at least 5 times a week. Every time the sun shines we’re out walking, despite the rainy week we managed to get ourselves outside for four walks this week.
4. Explore ten parks or hiking trails in this new state of Washington we now call home! January first we had our chance to explore our first Washington Park of the year. To encourage folks to get out and hike all the state parks are free January first. We drove to Port Townsend and explored Fort Worden. It was a beautiful day perfect for exploring and enjoying time with the family.
5. Incorporate 20 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus being on healthy eating. I love finding new recipes so this should be fun.
6. Read 35 new books this year. Finished my first book of 2019, The Auschwitz Escape writen by Joel C. Rosenberg. I’d forgotten what a good writer Joel Rosenberg is. This book takes place as the Nazi war machine is rolling across Europe. It is a real page turner which is why I finished it so quickly!
7. Complete 4 knitting or sewing projects this year. I have several big sewing projects I want to complete as well as a few smaller ones. Looking forward to moving into our own home and having a little more room to sew. Four sewing and knitting projects should be doable. First project to complete is a set of placemats! I friend of mine gave me the material and I think it will be perfect for contrasting!
8. Visit family on the west coast. No immediate plans to visit family and friends on the west coast. I have been in touch with an old high school friend who lives in Olympia, WA. We plan to get together so she can give us a tour of her home town.
9. Explore 6 new museums in the area. There is so much to learn about this new area we are living in. First on the list will be the Tacoma Glass Museum.
10. Find a new home. We met with a realtor this week! We weren’t so much looking for our next home but the realtor was showing us the different areas. We saw two houses we liked but the location was wrong and there was no room for gardening. Luckily we have time.
