This past weekend we finally made use of our library pass and visited the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum. Such an amazing museum. We’ll definitely be heading back! I’m so glad that I write a weekly post on goal setting because it keeps me motivated!

  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. I do thank all of your who have taken the time to check out my Amazon page and purchased from the various links in my bog posts. It is slowly paying off and it’s nice to have some money coming in to pay for the expenses of blogging.

2. Create a cookbook.  Breaking this goal down into smaller goals has been a big motivator! I am currently in the process of copying and pasting all 400 recipes into a document which we can then have published. amazing what you can accomplish when you just look at something a little differently.

3. Have 20 minutes of exercise at least 5 times a week.  My husband and I are back to working out on a daily basis. Much as I don’t really enjoy getting up and working out first thing I feel so much better afterwards! I sure feels good to be moving again on a regular basis.

4. Explore ten 3 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! No new parks or hiking trails this week.

5. Incorporate 20 2 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. Been trying to eat less meat. The winning recipe this week was a Homemade Sushi. I’ll be sharing the recipe next week.

6. Read 35 13 new books this year. Back on the wait list for  The Garden of the Evening Mists by Tan Twan Eng, since my Kindle loan expired and I know have to wait for it to be available again. So frustrating because I was enjoying the book! Finished the book The Library of Lost and Found by Phaedra Patrick. I just really enjoy this author and this book did not disappoint!

7. Complete Four 1 knitting or sewing projects this year. Just one more project to complete this year. However knitting has been put on hold until the weather cools off.

8. Visit family on the west coast. No plans for any extended visits anytime soon. The countdown has begun for our big trip to the east coast. Looking forward to seeing all our friends and family and spending some time on the beach!


9. Explore Six 4 new museums in the area. We didn’t make it to The Oregon Garden yet, instead we went to the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum with our son. One of the highlights of the museum is The Spruce Goose, the largest flying boat ever made. It made all the other planes in the building look tiny in comparison. Wonderful museum and so much to see we will definitely have to go back.

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!
