Unpacking after a cross country move has definitely been a lot of work. However with the exception of a few boxes left in the garage we are pretty much unpacked and just have a few pictures left to hang on the walls. I am so glad the majority of the work is behind us because it’s time to get outside and create some gardens!

  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.  My goal for this year is to have my cookbook ready by November 2019. with my office set up I need to buckle down and get this goal underway! the office is set and other than the garden calling me I have no excuses!

3. Have 20 minutes of exercise at least 5 times a week.  Next thing I want to do is plan on daily exercise, either find a class to join, an online workout or even a daily walk. We did enjoy a nice walk while visit your daughter in WA this past weekend. Couldn’t have asked for nicer weather!

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 6 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. The new recipe this week was a spaghetti squash casserole called, Creamy Spaghetti Squash with Ricotta and Spinach. Delicious casserole which makes a great side dish or a meatless main dish. Here is a picture of the casserole before it was cooked. We then proceeded to enjoy it and I didn’t take another picture!

6. Read 35 15 new books this year. Finished reading Rise and Shine, Benedict Stone by Phaedra Patrick. I was concerned I wouldn’t;t have time to read it before it was due to be returned but once I got into it, it was quick reading! Phaedra Patrick also wrote The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper which I just loved!

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! Spent the weekend in Washington with our family there.

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. Hoping this might be the week we check out this museum.

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!

Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act.
There is no other route to success.
