This last week has been so beautiful! Clear blue sky days and cooler nights. We’ve been taking advantage of the sun and getting some good walks in. Can’t believe we’re on week 44 of the goal setting updates!

  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 updates 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!

4. Explore ten 2 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! No new parks explored this week we did enjoy the Chinese Gardens but that’s more of a museum I think then a park! Love sharing my goal setting updates each week, sure keeps me motivated!

5. Incorporate 20 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. COMPLETED! Still trying to focus on healthy eating but this week I made a big batch of homemade spaghetti sauce! The grandchildren were spending the night and I was told they enjoy spaghetti. My husband also loves spaghetti so I figured why not!

6. Read 35 new books this year. COMPLETED! Just because I met this goal doesn’t mean I’ve stopped reading! I read two mystery books this week by Kate White. the first one was The Secrets You Keep and the second one was Such A Perfect Wife. The books were such page turners I couldn’t put them down!

7. Complete Four knitting or sewing projects this year. COMPLETED! I’m continuing to knit and making good progress on the baby sweater I started!

8. Visit family on the west coast. This week family is visiting us! Our daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter from Washington are here for the week! Such fun having them visit!

9. Explore Six 2 new museums in the area. Finally got around to visiting the Kan Su Chinese Gardens this week. It has been called the most exquisite, authentic Suzhou-style garden outside China. It was so beautiful.


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!

You should set goals beyond your reach
so you always have something to live for.
