Goal setting is an ongoing process and I constantly remind myself to enjoy the process and not think I have to complete all my goals in one week! The process of unpacking and making this house our home has been much more time consuming than we realized it would be! We are now down to hanging artwork! And yes, we still have large bags of packing material in our living room.

  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. Considering how fast time is flying by I am realizing that I need to break this goal down into bite size pieces. My office is pretty much set up, I have a new computer desk and it’s time to get cracking on this goal! No more excuses!

3. Have 20 minutes of exercise at least 5 times a week.  While it’s not been hard to get exercise in while unpacking and setting up our home my next aspect of this goal is to find a local gym or pool to join. I would love to find a pilates reformer class.


4. Explore ten 6 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! No new parks this week. Looking forward to re-visiting some of the parks we enjoyed in the past!

5. Incorporate 20 7 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. Finally getting back on track with meal planning! Made two news recipes this week, a delicious Taco Bean Soup which I cooked in our crock pot and a delicious Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast. If you are interested in the recipes let me know and I will be glad to share them!

6. Read 35 16 new books this year. Read Reader Player One, by Earnest Cline, a book which my son recommended. It is more of a science fiction type of book and not something I usually read. However it was enjoyable and gave me a small glimpse into the gamers world.

7. Complete Four 1 knitting or sewing projects this year. Just one more project to complete and I’m hoping it’s the mitten that I’ve started. However this is getting put on hold for a bit.

8. Visit family on the west coast. Been so busy with our immediate family we haven’t had a chance to connect with the entered family yet!

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! Our new house is finally feeling much more like our home. the majority of the unpacking is behind us and we just have some art work to hang on the walls. So nice to have this goal completed!
