Just when I thought we were home for awhile we headed to Washington to celebrate our youngest granddaughter’s birthday and our anniversary! Seems like just yesterday we were waiting for our granddaughter’s arrival and now she’s turning three! Here is my goal setting update for the week.

  1. Continue to monetize my blog. Thanks to all of you who have checked out my page on Amazon! I so appreciate those who have made purchases through my links and my page. Running a blog has many hidden expenses and I appreciate all of your support!

2. Create a cookbook. Making progress! I have a daily goal of working on at least ten recipes a day. Of course at the same time I am updating old blog posts as I go along. So many recipes and so many blog posts!

3. Have 20 minutes of exercise at least 5 times a week.  In addition to our daily walks I thought I was going to have the opportunity to check out Orange Theory Fitness with my two daughters. I love working out with them. The nice thing about Orange Theory is that you can make the workout as intense as you like. Sounded like it would be a good workout. However we decided to spent the morning exploring a nearby beach! Fun for everyone!

4. Explore ten 3 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! This week we are heading to the foothills of the Eastern Cascades to celebrate 39 years of marriage! I imagine there will be at least one hiking trail to explore. The goal setting update continues!

5. Incorporate 20 2 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. My favorite recipe this week was couscous with grilled vegetables. I love this recipe and will be sharing it on Friday!

6. Read 35 6 new books this year. Finished the book It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way by Lisa Terkeurst. The full title of the book is It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way: Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered. Life doesn’t always turn out the way we imagined. God does have a plan for our lives even if it’s not quite what we think it should be.

7. Complete Four 1 knitting or sewing projects this year. Just one more project to complete this year. However knitting has been put on hold until the weather cools off.

8. Visit family on the west coast. This week we’ll actually be visiting with some east coast friends who will be on the west coast for a wedding! It will be a quick visit but so fun to catch up!

9. Explore Six 4 new museums in the area. No new museums this week. Hopefully we’ll get back on track in the next couple of weeks. Nice to have a goal setting update each week as it keeps me on track!

10. Find A New Home COMPLETED! Wonderful to have this goal completed! Our new house is finally feeling much more like our home. The majority of the unpacking is behind us and we just have some art work to hang on the walls. So nice to have this goal completed!

Keep your fears to yourself, but share your inspiration with others.
