It definitely feels like we have entered into a different season here on the west coast. Our forecast now includes rain! We haven’t had rain all summer as you might imagine the lawns and gardens are very happy! Hard to believe it’s time for another 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! Every little bit helps with the expenses!

2. Create a cookbook. I continue to work away at this project. Trying to sort through at least 20 recipes from my blog each day! The goal is to be finished with copying all the recipes into a document by October first! At the same time I am updating each post as I go along so it’s taking a lot of time each day! Thank goodness I do a goal setting update each week to keep me on track of completing this goal!

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. Still trying to get a daily walk in although with the rain it doesn’t always happen!

4. Explore ten 2 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! No new parks to talk about this week.

5. Incorporate 20 1 new recipe into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. Tried a new recipe called Green Surprise Dip from the cookbook Simply in Season. I had some Swiss Chard from our CSA and the dip is amazing! I’ll share the recipe soon!

6. Read 35 5 new books this year. Finished my thirtieth  book this week, An American Princess: The Many Lives of Allene Tew. Enjoyed this book which tells the story of Allene New and spans her life of five marriages! If you’re interested in reading this book you can get it for your kindle on Amazon for only $1.99.

7. Complete Four 1 knitting or sewing projects this year. Decided to bring my bag of knitting with me on our short road trip. Always enjoy knitting in the car, no new projects finished yet! Looking forward to the goal setting update where I have completed my last project for the year!

8. Visit family on the west coast. Over the weekend we had a wonderful visit with friends in Eugene, Oregon. Still have to find time to visit the extended family we have on the west coast.

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!

It’s harder to stay on top than it is to make the climb. Continue to seek new goals
