We’ve been enjoying our first fall in Oregon. The days have been a mix of sun and rain and the nights have been much cooler. We planted two espalier apple trees in our backyard. They will provide some greenery and hopefully a little fruit at the same time! As we head toward the end of the year I am so pleased with the goals I’ve accomplished this year. It really helps to write a goal setting update each week.

  1. Continue to monetize my blog. Thanks to all of you who have checked out my page on Amazon! If you haven’t yet just click on the link and pay my storefront a visit! I would so appreciate it! Even if no purchases are made Amazon like to see traffic to my storefront! I do appreciate all of your support!

2. Create a cookbook. It seems that this next stage of creating a cookbook is even more work than moving all the recipes into a document! Trying to get a little done each week, this goal may be accomplished in 2020! I look forward to the goal setting update that says this goal is completed!

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 we spent the weekend in Eugene, Oregon and it was fun to explore that town again.

5. Incorporate 20 Completed! Made a delicious vegan pumpkin mac and cheese this week. It was so good and creamy. Hard to believe there wasn’t any cheese in it!

Also made my Autumn Apple Cake for a family dinner. Everyone loved it.

6. Read 35 2 new books this year. Finished my thirty-fourth book, The Guest Book by Sarah Blake. I had been waiting for this book for weeks! It was well worth the wait. The Guest Book was a great story spanning three generations. Moving back and forth across the three generations in the story and trying to figure out how everything tied together kept me reading, I couldn’t put the book down!

7. Complete Four knitting or sewing projects this year. Completed! I have started on a new project, a baby sweater! I had enough yarn on hand and the pattern. I love knitting baby sweaters because they go so quickly!

8. Visit family on the west coast. We’ve had fun with company and traveling to see friends. Still have family to visit however!

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!

If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.
