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. My goal for tis year is to have my cookbook ready by November 2019. The recipes are there it’s just a matter of organizing the into a book! this week I finally started copying my recipes into an document which I can then have published. Have any of you ever self published a cookbook? Any advice?
3. Have 20 minutes of exercise at least 5 times a week. Every time the sun shines we’re out walking. It’s been such fun exploring Point Ruston! Such a beautiful walk on a sunny day, right along the water and if the day is clear you can see Mount Rushmore.
4. Explore ten parks or hiking trails in this new state of Washington we now call home! Haven’t had a chance to explore another park this week but I do think I’m going to purchase park passes, for both the national parks and the state parks. It will encourage us to do more exploring!
20 19 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus being on healthy eating. I love finding new recipes so this should be fun. I shared the recent salmon cakes I made, canned salmon is not something I grew up with but it’s a great item to have in your pantry and these salmon cakes were delicious!
35 33 new books this year. Finished my first second of 2019, The Masterpiece by Francine Rivers. Francine Rivers is another one of my favorite authors. It had been a while since I’d read one of her books. The Masterpiece is a wonderful story about two people that had very similar backgrounds and both wrestle with the ghosts of their past. It’s a reminder that God’s mercy can reshape the most broken lives and create a new masterpiece.
four 3 knitting or sewing projects this year. My first project of 2019 is complete and a second one is underway! I finished four cute felt ornaments (on the right) and I am currently in the midst of making four new placements from material a friend of mine gave me years ago! About time I made something with it!
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. The best news is that our local library has free passes to the museum so it won’t cost us anything!
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.
