Another week with company! I love hosting and having company especially family. My daughter and granddaughter spent a few days visiting and I couldn’t be happier. I just love being so close to family once again. Goal setting is happening but I have to say it is on the back burner, mic more fun exploring the area especially the Farmer’s Markets!
- 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. My page on Amazon and being linked to Amazon Affiliates is slowly paying off. I thank those of you who have taken the time to check my page out or if you have purchased items through the links you find on my blog. Every little bit helps to support the expense involved in running a blog.
2. Create a cookbook. This goal is slowly coming along. My office is set up and about 85% organized. My new thought is to create eBooks as I work on my cookbook. Perhaps numerous eBooks on the different chapters of the cookbook such as appetizers, bread, desserts etc. What do you think?
3. Have 20 minutes of exercise at least 5 times a week. I absolutely love where we live. So different from our life in Vermont. It is so easy to just walk into town and go pick up our mail or go to the library. When our company was here last week they wanted to take us out to breakfast. I had heard of a little restaurant in town called “Hits The Spot”, we decided to check it out. It was about a five minute walk which was just perfect. After breakfast we took the “long” way home and showed our company the center of town, including a visit to our wonderful library!
ten 5 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! No new parks this week but took time to enjoy one we had already visited. Had to make a quick trip to Tacoma last week and we made a stop at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge. It was the perfect spot to stretch our legs, enjoy a walk and eat lunch.
20 5 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. With my fist CSA order being delivered last Friday I had the opportunity to enjoy a kohlrabi for the first time! Made a delicious Kohlrabi and Avocado Salad, I will share the recipe tomorrow.
35 14 new books this year. No new books read this week. I am currently reading The Garden of the Evening Mists by Tan Twan Eng. Took me a while to get into the book but I am now enjoying it.
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 extended family yet! Enjoyed a hike in Forest Park this week as well, fun looking at the growth rings with my granddaughter.
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. Also found our that our local library has a pass so we can enjoy this museum for free! They also have a pass for the Japanese Gardens in downtown Portland. We visited years ago and I would love to go back.
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!
