Loving our Cultural Passes we get through the library. Managed to go to The Oregon Garden this week. Well worth the hour long drive and can’t wait to go again! As far as goal setting think it counts more of a park than a museum!

  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.  Still managing to get at least 20 minutes of exercise in each week, between exploring The Oregon Garden, picking blueberries and just walking to get the mail this doesn’t seem to be a problem!

4. Explore ten 3 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! This week we explored The Oregon Garden, which I guess is more of a park than a museum. It was a beautiful day and we’ll definitely be heading back. With 80 acres to explore we didn’t get to see everything!

5. Incorporate 20 2 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. Our latest vegetarian recipe was a delicious Lentil and Quinoa Pilaf. I’ll be sharing the recipe in a few weeks.

6. Read 35 11 new books this year. A book that I’d been waiting for in the library finally came in!  I just finished reading my 24th book of the year, The Huntress by Katie Quinn, which is just as good, if not better than her previous book The Alice Network. I found myself sitting and reading whoever I had a free moment.

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 water!

9. Explore Six 4 new museums in the area. We finally made it to The Oregon Garden which I decided really can’t count as a museum, more like a park! Such a beautiful spot to explore.

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!

“I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
Henry David Thoreau, Author Walden Pond
