Here we are in the month of September! So much has happened in the last year! Selling our home in Vermont, moving cross country, finding a new home, moving again, and travel. No wonder the days are flying by! Here I am with my goal setting update!

  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. I have been working hard to accomplish this goal. I have a set number of recipes to work through each day. I sure hope I can get it all done by the end of the year!

3. Have 20 minutes of exercise at least 5 times a week.  Between the exercise class I joined in town which meets three days a week and daily walking this goal is finally being accomplished each week!

4. Explore ten 2 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! No new parks to talk about this week although we did enjoy a trip to the coast last week and explored two different beaches! amazing how different beaches can be from one another.

5. Incorporate 20 2 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. No new recipes this week, instead relied on old favorites like the Southwestern Veggie Taco! I just love this recipe!

6. Read 35 7 new books this year. Finished Cimarron  this week. I read this story many years ago and always remember it made such an impression on me.  It’s a fascinating story about the Oklahoma Land Rush originally written in 1929! By the time I finished the book it was not as good as I remembered!

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. We made plans to visit friends in Eugene, Oregon later this month. Have to see if we can make plans to visit some extended family as well.

9. Explore Six 3 new museums in the area. No new museums this week. Have to look and see what other museums our library pass covers!

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!

You wanna fly, you got to give up the thing that weighs you down.
