We had our first company this past weekend! Our two sons, our grandchildren and a grand puppy! Full house for the first time since we left Vermont. We also had dear friends from Eugene, OR come spend the night. So nice to have company once again although we’ve been too busy to focus much on goal setting!

Goal setting is not easy when you have a busy week!
  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.  The days have been packed! Went on a five mile hike over the weekend and enjoyed a local farmers market! Beautiful weather so no excuse not to be outside!

4. Explore ten 6 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! Explored the Veronia-Banks State Trail a 21 miles beautiful trail ideal for bicycling, walking ro horseback riding. We did’t do the whole length but did walk a five mile segment. Can’t wait to go back on bicyles.

5. Incorporate 20 6 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. Made a delicious chicken dinner this week called West Coast Chicken, basically chicken cooked in an orange sauce. It was enjoyed by all!

6. Read 35 14 new books this year. I finished one book by Susan Wigg called Family Tree. I enjoy Susan Wigg as an author when I’m looking for a quick, light read. This book was about a small town in Vermont which is probably why I enjoyed the book so much!

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! We did enjoy connecting with our friends from Eugene!

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. Keep 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!

“My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose – somehow we always win out.”
