Two weeks before we move into the New Year, can you believe it? I’m so glad I challenged myself to goal setting this year. By writing my goals down and looking at them weekly I was able to accomplish so much.
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. This is an ongoing goal and will probably continue next year. 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. As we head into the New Year I plan to focus more on this goal. How nice it would be to cover the costs of having a blog! In addition to earning money by placing ads on my site I have also made up a Blessing Jar. If you’ve always wanted to write down your daily blessings I have made it so easy for you to do this. Check out my post on The Blessing Jar.
3. Create a cookbook. This is definitely getting put on hold. This goal will put at the top of next year’s list.
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! We’ve had a week of rain and the only walking we’ve done this past week was running errands!
As we continue to prepare for our house sale, continue to de-clutter. DONE!!
Read 25 books this year! Done! However this doesn’t mean I’ve stopped reading. I am reading The Baker’s Secret, and it was definitely worth the wait! It’s one of those books that I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see it made into a movie.
7. Have a consistent meal plan each week and prepare ahead. Work in Progress. My meal focus for the weeks leading up to Christmas is to eat healthy! Not always an easy thing with all the goodies around. On the menu this week: Tortilla Pizza, Chicken Stuffed with Basil and Mozzarella and Turkey Chili!
Finish 4 knitting projects. Completed! Having fun wrapping the two scarves I made earlier this year. Also looking ahead to what projects I plan to complete next year. Knitting or quilting or both? Two of my favorite books are Quick and Easy Projects for the Weekend Quilter and One-Skein Wonders. I may just pick my projects from these books!
. 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!
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! Looking forward to visiting family on the west coast in 2019. I have a cousin in British Columbia, she and her husband own the first organic brewery in Canada, (Crannog Ales) not to mention an amazing farm. I can’t wait to plan a trip to visit!
