1. Read one non-fiction book per month :
Not happening unless you want to count cookbooks.
2. Monthly date with the husband :
In the last few weeks we have traveled to Branson MO and enjoyed some time with our current everyday family of three. I also fit in an at home date with the husband with a tray type dinner eaten in bed while watching a movie together. While the youngest ate pizza and watched a movie downstairs.
In the last month we have played many games but one of the favorite things was a trip to a place called the Boardroom which was pretty cool, pricey but it was fun to spend an evening with all the children playing lots of different games. In fact we came home with a new game called Code Word.
4. Try a new recipe each week - This month there hasn't been much cooking going on as I have been spending more time outside,cereal does count as a meal right. I am looking forward to more cooking once school lets out for the year and the garden is producing.
The last few weeks have all been about the garden from adding fencing to building beds and so much more.
Had some extra help in moving this pile of dirt from the front to the back to fill the new beds.
|Old beds moved to new spot|
|Fencing added to separate the dog from my garden|
|Fire Pit all cleaned up|
|Building the new beds|
|All the new beds in, fencing up, lattice up.|
|Spring Veggies planted and starting to grow|
Still haven't done the garage but have gone though the boy's clothes and after seeing how big the doesn't fit pile is, will have some shopping to do for summer.
7. Loose some weight-
Need a new plan
8. Learn a new skill -
I made soap, it wasn't nearly has hard as I thought. I did a hot process soap using a crock pot and have been using the lavender coconut oil / olive oil soap I made. Just the other day I made another using coffee, and have plans this week to make another using oatmeal. I can safely say that everyone is getting soap and towels for Christmas.
9. Reduce trash-
Bit by Bit
10. A Financial goal-
Getting there dollar by dollar
