Can you believe it’s October already? The colors are changing and with all the rain we’ve had the fields around us are all turning green. So different from Vermont where the leaves are turning such beautiful colors right now but the fields are not turning green. Hard to believe it’s time for the goal setting update week 40!

  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 was my goal to have all the recipes put into document which I can then edit to create the cookbook. I have been so diligent to get to this stage of the project. As of Saturday all 400 plus recipes have been transferred into a document which now must be edited once again before bing printed!

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!

4. Explore ten 2 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! No new parks explored this week but we found a wonderful apple orchard! We love driving out in the countryside this time of year as it’s just beautiful!

5. Incorporate 20 Completed! Tried another new recipe Skillet Beans and Sausage. This is one of those comforting meals that is perfect for a cool autumn evening. I used turkey kielbasa to make the recipe a little more healthy. the recipe will be shared next week.

6. Read 35 4 new books this year. Finished by thirty-second book, City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert. It took me a while to get into this book but once I did I couldn’t put it down. It’s all about love and finding yourself. The story takes place in New York city during the 1940’s. A young girl from an affluent family comes to live with her aunt who runs a little theater. Very entertaining story.

7. Complete Four knitting or sewing projects this year. Completed! I used up a bit of yarn and made another hat! So nice to have this weekly goal update completed! I’m already thinking ahead to next year and have sorted throughly remaining yarn and looked at various patterns to figure what my projects will be for 2020!

8. Visit family on the west coast. We’ll be back down in Eugene in two weeks to visit friends but not family visits planned right now. Just 12 more weeks of sharing my goal setting update!

9. Explore Six 3 new museums in the area. No new museums this week. I took a look see what other museums our library pass covers, thinking we may have to go to the Chinese Gardens in Portland soon.

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