Can you believe we’re nearing the end of September? We keep thinking about the wonderful time we had in Eugene, did you know they have the most wonderful bike trail? Now that we’re home it’s time to get back on track and finish a few more projects that have been on our to do list! So once again I am here with my goal setting update!

Before I go any further I do want to announce the winner in my Celebrating Blogging Giveaway! Congratulations to Tony M! I hope you enjoy the books!

  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. October first is my goal to have all the recipes put into a document which I can then edit to create the cookbook. I’m in the home stretch! I have less than 50 recipes to go through and update and move into my ever growing document. Then the real work begins!

3. Have 20 minutes of exercise at least 5 times a week.  So nice to have this goal a part of my weekly routine. I’ve been faithful to go to my exercise class three times a week, I just love being able to walk there! Couldn’t be more convenient! Plus we did a 13 miles bike ride when we were in Eugene! I think it’s time to get some bicycles!

4. Explore ten 2 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! No new parks this week. Hoping to find an orchard where we can pick apples, think that would count?

5. Incorporate 20 Completed! Tried anther new recipe using zucchini! Yes we’ve had an abundance of zucchini this summer, I grew some of my own and also received some from our CSA. Made Zucchini Dill Pancakes for dinner the other night. Nice fresh light supper! Will certainly be making them again. I’ll be sharing the recipe next week!

6. Read 35 4 new books this year. Finished by thirty-first book, only four more to go before I can check off this goal. I’m waiting for a few books on my list to come in at the library so I read another book by Elizabeth Berg called The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted and Other Random Acts of Liberation. I didn’t realize when I started the book that it was a series of short stories. This is actually perfect especially when you are reading at the end of the day. Some of them were so funny I actually was laughing out loud!

7. Complete Four 1 knitting or sewing projects this year. I have one project to complete and although I did do some knitting while we were traveling last week I did not complete anything. I took a hard look at the projects I still have to complete and decided to make my granddaughter a hat! It will probably be my last knitting project of the year.

8. Visit family on the west coast. No plans in the near future, I am waiting to hear back from a great aunt and a second cousin regarding visiting them. For the time being we’re just enjoying being home.

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! Looking forward to completing this goal and being able to give you my goal setting update and let you know it’s complete!

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 a few family photos to hang on the walls. So nice to have this goal setting update completed!

It’s important to set your own goals and work hard to achieve them.
