Little by little we are adjusting to life in a “tiny home”, living in a one bedroom apartment is quite an adjustment from a four bedroom home! Nice to have all the boxes unpacked and having our little space now feel like home!goal setting 45

1. Find a new hosting site for my blog and make it secure.  Done! This was the first goal accomplished this year and I am so happy to have a secure website.

2. Monetize my blog. I have set up two affiliate accounts. You may be noticing links to my favorite items on Amazon. I’ve also teamed up with an amazing heirloom seed company, Mary’s Heirloom Seeds. Really don’t want to clutter my blog up with too many ads, however I sure appreciate any support in running this blog!                                                                        

3. Create a cookbook. This is definitely getting put on hold. I had grand ideas of accomplishing this goal but I think it will go at the top of next years’s goal list!

4. Be diligent about getting 10K steps in 5 out of 7 days a week. I’ve decided to change this goal to 3 out of 7 days a week! Despite the beautiful weather we’ve been enjoying lately I have not been getting my steps in, this goal has been an epic fail! I hope to continue this goal next year, perhaps with some adjustment. We’ve had some nice walks with the grandchildren this week while in Portland, OR. Nice to see the fall colors still hanging on.goal setting

5. As we continue to prepare for our house sale, continue to de-clutter. DONE!!

6. Read 25 books this year! Done! This goal may be completed but I am still reading! this week I finished the most interesting book called, A Warrior’s Circle of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow written by Lori Paul. It is an inspirational story of a man, Raymond Muckuk, who has run across the United States five time to raise awareness of the situations facing Native Americans. We had the privilege to spend time with Raymond three years ago when we spent a month in Keystone, South Dakota taking part in The Keystone Project. Very interesting and inspiring book.

7. Have a consistent meal plan each week and prepare ahead. This has been going pretty well. We are now off to watch our grandchildren in Portland so no meal plan for us this week. I’m sure my daughter will have a meal plan in place for our time spent with our grandchildren!goal setting
8. Finish 4 knitting projects. Completed! Made two hats and two scarves. This goal is completed but I would like to knit a few small projects for the holidays.goal setting

9. Clean out our freezer. Done! I miss having our larger freezers but I am not planning on stocking up while we live in this apartment. Shopping is done for the week ahead and that’s about it!

10. Take a few road trips and visit family and friends on the east coast that we will not see as often once we move to the west coast. Done! Having completed this goal we are now looking forward to a new year with new travel plans. I actually have a bit of family here on the west coast and it will be fun to catch up with everyone.


“You have to set goals that are almost out of reach.

If you set a goal that is attainable without much work or thought,

you are stuck with something below your true talent and potential.
