Another busy week! We’re beginning to realize that this is our new life! No complaints, just loving life! Trying to move forward on the goal setting process. Writing a weekly post on my goal setting update helps keep me on track! Managed to get three hydrangeas planted in our front yard. It’s the first step in removing the grass and creating 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. 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.  Have I said how much I love where we live? This week we tried stand up paddle boarding! Had a family day at a nearby lake and spent several hours playing on the water. Such fun to enjoy a swim on such a hot day!

4. Explore ten 4 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! The new park we explored this week was Henry Hagg Lake, it was a perfect spot for swimming and paddle boarding. It’s a beautiful spot with numerous picnic areas, two boat launching areas and more than 14 miles for hiking. It was the hottest day we’ve had yet this summer so we spent our time in the water, not hiking!

5. Incorporate 20 4 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. This week our CSA contained sorrel, another vegetable I have never tried. I decided to make Sorrel Soup. It was pretty good, and had a slight lemony taste.

6. Read 35 14 new books this year. No new books read this week. I was hoping to finish  The Garden of the Evening Mists by Tan Twan Eng, however my Kindle loan expired and I know have to wait for it to be available again. So frustrating because I was enjoying the book!

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. Spending all our time with our immediate family. I have reached out to extended family to see if we can connect. Did have a wonderful time picking strawberries with my daughter and granddaughter.

9. Explore Six 5 new museums in the area. Finally got our library cards, now to grab a pass to one of the local museums. Just like when we lived in Washington these passes are popular!

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!
