We had a few beautiful days this past week. We took advantage of the sun to explore another park! I am so thankful for the opportunity to post my goal setting updates 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 had the opportunity 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 all the work I have put into this project I am realizing I have a lot of work still to do. This goal will be moved to my goals to complete in 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 1 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! Although we explored our tenth park this week I totally forgot to mention that we explored the Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve with our grandchildren the other weekend! It was a beautiful day and the perfect place to visit!

5. Incorporate 20 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. COMPLETED! Although this goal is completed I continue to try and focus on healthy eating at least most of the time. It can be a real challenge around the holidays. Recently we enjoyed the Beyond Meat Beyond Sausage with Cabbage. It was delicious. If you haven’t tried the plant based Beyond Meat they are wonderful.

6. Read 35 new books this year. COMPLETED! I am currently reading a book due to be released in December called Secrets of Willow Creek by Tracy Fredrychowski. I applied for and was accepted to the launch team which meant I got to read the book before it was published! Next week I’ll be sharing my review. I am really enjoying the book!

7. Complete Four knitting or sewing projects this year. COMPLETED! Finally finished the back of my latest project!

8. Visit family on the west coast. We’ve sent a lot of time with our immediate family here on the west coast. Next year I hope to visit more o my extended family!

9. Explore Six new museums in the area. COMPLETED! Such a fun goal to have completed! Really have enjoyed my weekly goal setting updates. These are the six museums I visited this year:

Tacoma Art Museum (week 5)
The Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum (week 28)
Shafer Museum (week 35)
The Lan Su Chinese Garden (week 44)
The Rice Museum of Rocks and Minerals (week 46)
Columbia River Maritime Museum (week 47)
Guess it’s time to start working on my list for 2020!

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!
