Weekly Goals – September 9, 2012

Previous Goals:

Gardening:

  1. Finish reading Composting Inside and Out
  2. Empty out plant containers (no longer producing or have died) – Okay, technically I have two and a half (a very small one) to go.  However, I did the vast majority AND I turned the compost pile … so I’m counting this done.
  3. Preserve something (herbs?) I froze 7 sandwich bags of red bell pepper strips.  Each bag held two or three peppers.

Homemaking:

  1. Organize “to give away” pile to be more user friendly – I worked on this, but did not get it completed
  2. Declutter 1 thing each day
  3. Do 5 minutes Zone 1 work each day – not sure why I didn’t do this as I really was looking forward to working in this Zone.

Personal:

  1. Tell my husband “I love you” each day (on going)
  2. Do Bible readings 5 times
  3. Work on 5 Year Plan – this is something I have put thought into but nothing has made it onto paper or even finalized in my head.
  4. Do something each day to earn money (besides the vegetable stand)

My goals this past week went easier than I thought they would.  Perhaps because it seemed like I was on a roll a few days and got several of them taken care of.  Or maybe it is because I had to get them done due to other circumstances (we needed room in the fridge for a watermelon so I had to cut up some peppers).  Either way, I made more progress than I originally thought.

My hopes for this week are optimistic.  I can do this.  It is possible.  So,  here we go.

New Goals:

Gardening:

  1. Finish cutting bell peppers into strips and freezing
  2. Freeze basil
  3. Look for manure and wood chips to add to compost or garden

Homemaking:

  1. Organize “to give away” pile to be more user friendly
  2. Do 5 minutes Zone 2 work each day
  3. Start a “Year’s supply” list for my pantry (the ideal number of different items to have on hand for a year’s supply; 60 jar of spaghetti sauce, for example.)

Personal:

  1. Tell my husband “I love you” each day (on going)
  2. Do daily Bible readings 5 times
  3. Work on 5 Year Plan
