The biggest goal of the year has been accomplished! We have a new home! As of Saturday we are now the owners of a new home in Oregon! Over the next two weeks we will be moving in! Looking forward to unpacking everything! Probably won’t be having a large vegetable garden at our home as it is a small lot however I can walk to the community gardens!

  1. Continue to monetize my blog. My ongoing goal. Have you taken the time to check out my page on Amazon? This page is where I put all the items I just love, from favorite cookbooks to gardening tools. Please check it out. Another aspect of this goal involves increasing my readership. If you enjoy reading my blog, please recommend it to your friends. I sure appreciate all my new subscribers!

2. Create a cookbook.  You may remember this goal was on my list last year and I finally put it aside. My goal for this year is to have my cookbook ready by November 2019. I am so excited, once we are settled in our new home I will have my own office and will no longer be working at the kitchen table. This cookbook is going to be completed!

3. Have 20 minutes of exercise at least 5 times a week.  We are back to packing up our small apartment so no sitting around! The first load was delivered to the house this week. We’ll be moving in mid May!

4. Explore ten 7 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! Explored the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge in Olympia, Washington. This refuge is located on the Nisqually River Delta in Southern Puget Sound and consists of three thousand acres of salt and freshwater marshes, grasslands and mixed forest habitats. We were blessed with a beautiful day for the hike.

5. Incorporate 20 9 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. Made a delicious Greek Salad with Feta and Artichokes. So good and made enough to last for a few days. I’ll be sharing the recipe next week. We’ll be enjoying this salad again!

6. Read 35 19 new books this year. Finished my sixteenth book! One of recently discover authors is Elizabeth Berg, I have read other books of her’s and this week I finished The Art of Mending. It is the story of three siblings (I can relate) and the memories they share about their childhood. What do you do when one of the siblings has very different memories? do you believe her?

7. Complete Four 1 knitting or sewing projects this year. Still working on my mittens! I finally got on YouTube and look at a few videos on knitting a cable pattern. It’s not difficult just had to be reminded how!

8. Visit family on the west coast. Heading back down to Portland this week to walk through the house and move our first small load in. Be glad when we are settled and can visit some of the extended family in the area!

9. Explore Six 5 new museums in the area. Beginning to wonder if the library really has this pass as it is never there! We have two weeks to secure this pass and visit the museum before we move to Oregon, then we’ll be exploring museums in the Portland area!

10. Find A New Home COMPLETED! As of Saturday we are homeowners once again! Now to move in, unpack and get settled!

I don’t I don’t know if you thought about submitting do-it-yourself projects to Home talk website, but I’ve made a lot more money there than I have on Amazon.

Thanks for a great idea, I will definitely look into that! 🙂

It also really boosted my readership. For one project featured in their email I got over 13,000 hits in one day
