We enjoyed a wonderful week away, but after all the traveling we have done this summer it is good to be home. I’m looking forward to staying put for a while and completing my goal setting!

  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. As you might imagine I didn’t make much progress on the cookbook last week, but I am home now and I have a 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.  We enjoyed hiking along some wonderful trails while we were away. No problem getting our exercise in.

4. Explore ten 2 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! Our drive through the Cascades was incredibly beautiful. Definitely an area we would like to go back to. So many places to explore.

5. Incorporate 20 2 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. This past week I did not do any meal planning or cooking. It was wonderful to enjoy meals made by someone else. The challenge was making healthy choices!

6. Read 35 6 new books this year. Did not finish any books this week but did start on my 36th book of the year! Cimarron seemed like an appropriate book to start while exploring eastern Washington. It’s a wonderful story about the Oklahoma Land Rush originally written in 1929!

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 caught up with friends from the east coast visiting in Washington. Wasn’t a long visit, but fun to see such dear friends!

9. Explore Six 3 new museums in the area. We explored a fascinating western museum in Winthrop, Washington called Shafer Museum.

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!

In the realm of ideas everything depends on enthusiasm… in the real world all rests on perseverance.
