Goal setting is not always easy when you’re in the midst of unpacking! I have to say that unpacking is almost harder than moving! We have been unpacking everyday since we moved in and there are still things in boxes. However the upstairs is all set up and the living room kitchen area is almost there. Just have to hang some art work and I can start working outside in the garden!

  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 slowly getting my office set up, I am so thrilled to have my own little space. Right now I’m working at a table but I’ve got everything I need at my fingertips!

3. Have 20 minutes of exercise at least 5 times a week.  No problem getting exercise these days. Most days I am getting my 10K steps! Mother’s Day we took a break and went to Astoria with my daughter and her family. Our weather has been beautiful. It was nice to get steps walking around outside rather than back and forth from the garage getting boxes to unpack!

4. Explore ten 6 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! In addition to walking around Astoria we also explored Fort Stevens State Park. Beautiful scenery.

There were signs warning of that we were in cougar country! Not something I’ve ever seen before!

5. Incorporate 20 9 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. I wish I had a fabulous new recipe to share but meals have been hit or miss lately! I love my kitchen and can’t wait to really start incorporating some new recipes into our meal plan!

6. Read 35 17 new books this year. I finished reading Marilla of Green Gables by Sarah McCoy. I really enjoyed this book. The author did  a great job following in the footsteps of the original writer of Anne of Green Gables, L.M. Montgomery.

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. Found out we actually have a little museum right in our town, the Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals. It sounds worthy of checking out.

10. Find A New Home COMPLETED! Wonderful to have this goal completed! Looking forward to having the packing behind us and not a daily activity!
