Looks like our clear sunny weather may be coming to an end. The weekend ahead looks like there is rain in the forecast. We’ll have two of our grandchildren for a long weekend so I hope we get some clear weather! Hard to believe the end of the year is just weeks away! Another week flown by and time for 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, realizing this goal will be completed 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’ll have our grandchildren for a long weekend so if the weather is good we might get a hike in!

5. Incorporate 20 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. COMPLETED! Still trying to focus on healthy eating. I did make an amazing pecan pumpkin bread, which while not entirely healthy was delicious!

6. Read 35 new books this year. COMPLETED! Currently reading two books! One is written by the husband of a woman in my exercise class. It’s called Those Were The Good Old Days! Written by Melvin Van Domelen. It’s fascinating reading all about the local history. I also just started The Pioneers by David McCullough. My husband thought it was a good read.

7. Complete Four knitting or sewing projects this year. COMPLETED! Have not made any further progress on my current sweater but at least this goal is complete for the year!

8. Visit family on the west coast. Busy week last week with our daughter and family visiting. We have grandchild duty this week so no visiting any other family!

9. Explore Six 2 new museums in the area. No new museums this week, we had company all week. However this weekend we’re hoping to explore the Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria, Oregon. It was founded in 1962 to preserve the rich maritime heritage of the entire Columbia River region.


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 aim for nothing, you’ll hit it every time.
