We’ve had a busy last few days! Watching our two grandchildren has kept us busy with barely anytime to focus on goal setting updates! We made plans of things to do while our grandchildren were with us which of course all got changed!

  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. This goal is not going to be completed this year. Despite al the work I have put into this project I am realizing I have a lot of work still to do. Guess it will be moved to my goals for 2020!

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 hiking trails this week, our grandchildren did not want to hike and the weather wasn’t that great so we kept ourselves busy in other ways. Writing goal setting updates each week helps keep me focused on the goals I want to complete but it doesn’t mean that get accomplished!

5. Incorporate 20 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. COMPLETED! No new recipes this week! I am planning on making a carrot fennel soup soon. I got the recipe from our CSA and it looks delicious.

6. Read 35 new books this year. COMPLETED! One book finished this week, had to return The Pioneers before I could finish it! I did however finish the book Illumination In The Flatwoods by Joe Hutto. It was a delightful read. I loved the author’s descriptions of raising his turkeys and taking them for walks everyday.

7. Complete Four knitting or sewing projects this year. COMPLETED! Managed to get a little more work done on my latest project. My grandson admired it and asked me if I could make him a sweater!

8. Visit family on the west coast. We have been so busy with the immediate family we haven’t had any time to visit any extended family!

9. Explore Six 1 new museums in the area. One more museum to discover before the end of the year! Over the weekend we had hoped to visit the Columbia River Maritime Museum but our grandchildren did not want to spend time in the car. Instead we went to the Rice Museum of Rocks and Minerals. It is located right in our town! The museum is much larger than I realized and well worth the visit especially for our grandson who is fascinated with rocks! I’m so glad that visiting this museum was part of my goal setting updates! Our favorite rock was the Alma Rose!

10. Find A New Home COMPLETED! Wonderful to have this goal completed! Our new house is finally feeling much more like our home. We are looking forward to celebrating the holidays with our family!

but your arrow will fly far higher than if aimed at an object
on a level with yourself. “
