By the time you read this post we will be on our way home. I am looking forward to getting back to my regular routine and updating my goal setting week from home rather than on the road! However we had a fabulous time with family and friends and it was so hard to say good bye to everyone!

  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.  This week this goal is moving to the front. Time is flying by and if I want to accomplish this goal this year I have to make it a top priority! I look forward to updating my goal setting week when this goal is accomplished!

3. Have 20 minutes of exercise at least 5 times a week.  Hopefully this goal will be a routine. While on vacation it was not a problem, we were with swimming, riding bicycles or walking everyday! Now that we are back home I have to continue.

4. Explore ten 3 parks or hiking trails in the state of Washington or Oregon! No new parks this week. Time to plan a few day trips. Love having these goal setting weeks to keep me motivated to accomplish my goals!

5. Incorporate 20 2 new recipes into our dinner plans with the focus on healthy eating. Spent the last week with our oldest daughter and she made a fabulous Vegan Noodle Salad. I think I could eat this for the rest of the summer, it was so delicious!

6. Read 35 9 new books this year. Racing to finish the book The Pull of The Moon by Elizabeth Berg. I thought I would do a lot more reading while on vacation. It just didn’t happen. By the time I crawled into bed at night I was too tired to read. Problem is I have several library books on my kindle that have to be finished before they have to be returned.


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. What a fantastic time we had visiting family and friends on the east coast. Now we’ll have to make plans to visit some extended family on the west coast!

9. Explore Six 4 new museums in the area. Not sure if this counts but we visited the Yale Peabody Natural History Museum. I had visited this museum often as a children and then again with our own children. So you can imagine how much fun it was to visit the museum with our grandchildren!

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!

The thing about goals is that living without them is a lot more fun, in the short run. It seems to me, though, that the people who get things done, who lead, who grow and who make an impact, those people have goals.
