After several days of unseasonable cold weather we’re back to slightly warmer temperatures and rain. We managed to get some planting done this past week. We planted three new bushes in our backyard which was fun. 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!

2. Create a cookbook. Now that the recipes are moved into a document the work continues. Thinking I may create several smaller publications instead of one large compilation.

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 explored three nurseries. I love walking around nurseries especially if they have a section where they have various plants planted so you can get an idea of what they look like in a landscape setting not just a pot. We were looking for a tree for our front yard.

5. Incorporate 20 Completed! No new recipes this week instead I relied on tried and true recipes such as Parmesan Pork Chops and Beef Stew with Sweet Potatoes. Sometimes it’s nice to revisit family favorites!

Beef Stew with Sweet Potatoes

6. Read 35 3 new books this year. Finished my thirty-third book, Five Presidents by Clint Hill. I don’t usually read historical books but this book was  fascinating. Clint Hill was a secret service agent and served under five presidents from Eisenhower to Ford. It was so interesting to read about a part of  history that took place in my lifetime, but which I don’t remember much of.

7. Complete Four knitting or sewing projects this year. Completed! Now that my goal is completed for the year I can take a look at what other projects I was to complete in 2020 and what new projects I want to start.

8. Visit family on the west coast. We have a trip planed to Eugene but this past weekend we had company at our house! An unexpected visit from my daughter-in-law’s father! Fun time and nice to get to know him a little better! 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 go to the Chinese Gardens in Portland soon. I’m thankful for my weekly goal setting update as it sure keeps me focused on the goals!

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!

One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals.
