September seems to be off to a good start. We’re enjoying staying put for a bit and accomplishing those projects that we’ve been meaning to get to since we moved into our home. I’ve even had time to make some jam to fill our small pantry! Here I am once again 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. This goal is turning out to be so much bigger than I imagined! I am faithfully working on copying recipes from my blog to a document which I can then use to create a cookbook. Over 400 recipes which amazes me! Just trying to figure out whether I want to make one big cookbook or several smaller books. And do I want an actually paper copy or just an e-book? So much to figure out. I’m just happy I’m making progress!

3. Have 20 minutes of exercise at least 5 times a week.  I am really enjoying my exercise class. I can walk to class and am getting to know the women in the class. We meet for an hour Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. I just love having exercise scheduled into my routine. My husband and I also try to go for an evening walk before the days get any shorter.

4. Explore ten 2 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! No new parks to talk about this week. We were going to go to Mt. Hood over the weekend but the forecast for Mt. Hood was rain. Maybe next week my goal setting update will include a new park or hike!

5. Incorporate 20 1 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. Tried a new recipe using spiralized zucchini noodles and mushrooms! I actually made it twice this week and forgot to take pictures each time! One of the ladies at exercise week sent me home with a zucchini so I made good use of it!

6. Read 35 6 new books this year. Finished by twenty-ninth  book this week! I read Thin Air by Lisa Gray. It’s a murder mystery which means you read it quickly as you want the murder to be solved! the main character is Jessica Shaw, a private investigator. Her focus is on missing persons. She receives a photo of a missing child, only to realize the child is herself! Further investigation leads her to the information that her biological mother was killed the night she was abducted!

7. Complete Four 1 knitting or sewing projects this year. Just about time to pick up my knitting once again! We have rain in the forecast which means cooler weather. Just the time when you want to pick up knitting again. Looking forward to finish up one last knitting project to complete my goal setting update!

8. Visit family on the west coast. We have 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!

Begin with the end in mind.
