It feels like fall now and it’s been a rainy week! We planted a few trees on our small property and are thankful for the rain. As the year moves toward December I’m working away at completing all my goals. 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! although sometimes the walk is wet!

4. Explore ten 2 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! No new parks explored this week although we did explore a new pumpkin patch with our grandchildren! Loved seeing the fields of pumpkins!

5. Incorporate 20 COMPLETED! My husband made an excellent eggplant pizza this week using eggplant we received from our CSA! It was so good! It’s the second one he’s made.

6. Read 35 new books this year. COMPLETED! Finished my thirty-fifth book, Stilettos to Stetsons by Janice Hood. A friend at my exercise class gave me this book to read, when I saw the title I imagined it was some romance novel. In actuality it was a true story written by Janice Hood about her life. She lived in England and her husband dropped dead of a heart attack when she was in her late 40s. Eventually she is visit friends in Texas and meets a Texas rancher and falls in love. It was actually a very good story and I learned a lot about ranching in Texas!

7. Complete Four knitting or sewing projects this year. COMPLETED! Making good progress on my latest project, a child sweater! Almost finished with the back. 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!

The greater danger for most of us isn’t that our aim is too high and miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.
