The move is behind us! The unpacking is in full swing. Not a lot to report on the goal setting update.

  1. Continue to monetize my blog. This is 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 or share with 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.  Well I have gotten over 10k steps each day since we moved! Lots of exercise moving boxes and unpacking! Not very exciting but it’s exercise! See all those little stars, those are the days I met my goal of 10k steps!

4. Explore ten 7 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! I recently got the new National Park Pass so you can be sure that we will be doing some exploring, just not this week!

5. Incorporate 20 9 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. Nothing to report this week, some nights we have a bowl of cereal! Too exhausted from unpacking!

6. Read 35 18 new books this year. I am currently reading Marilla of Green Gables by Sarah McCoy. If you are a fan of Anne of Green Gables you will love this book. Almost done and a wonderful relaxing book to read at the end of a busy day.

7. Complete Four 1 knitting or sewing projects this year. My mittens are put on hold while I unpack. Of course in all the unpacking I came upon a few more knitting projects that I just might have to add to the list!

8. Visit family on the west coast. We actually have family in Portland, a cousin of my mom’s and we are invited for dinner as soon as we get settled. There is also talk of a family reunion this fall!

9. Explore Six 5 new museums in the area. As soon as we get a few more boxes unpacked we’ll be checking the local museums out! I did hear that our local library is very active so we’ll have to see what museums they suggest!

10. Find A New Home COMPLETED! Wonderful to have this goal completed! Now to finish unpacking and make this home a home!

“It is not enough to take steps which may someday lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
