This was a busy week as we prepared to head east for a big family reunion. Looking forward to being back on the east coast and catching up with family and friends. Made a little progress on goal setting however.

  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 keep plugging away at this goal. Even put it on my laptop so I could work on it while we’re on the east coast!

3. Have 20 minutes of exercise at least 5 times a week.  No problem maintaining this goal during the summer. Much harder during the dark, cold winter months!

4. Explore ten 3 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! No new parks this week instead we will be enjoying time on a lake in New Hampshire. No place better to enjoy the weekend.

5. Incorporate 20 1 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. Another vegetarian recipe this week, Grilled Vegetables with Couscous. Such an easy recipe and so delicious. Just grill some vegetables and toss them with couscous. What could be easier! I’ll be sharing the recipe soon!

6. Read 35 10 new books this year. After reading The Huntress I considered taking a break since I enjoyed the book so much but instead I went ahead and read The Great Unexpected by Dan Mooney, my 25th book of the year. I really enjoyed this book about two roommates in a nursing home with different outlooks on life. Despite their opposite outlooks they become good friends and go on some crazy adventures.

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 visits with family on the west coast, instead we are catching up with family and friends on the east coast!

9. Explore Six 4 new museums in the area. No new museums on the west coast, hoping to check out at least one while we’re on the east coast. There are several old houses that I would love to visit in the town we grew up in.

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!
