Monthly Goals Link-up : Oct. 2017

3 Oct

You guys! It’s officially fall! Okay, okay, I know it has been for over a week now but I’m celebrating it now. I woke up with a craving for pumpkin muffins this morning, so that’s going to hopefully happen this week.

I got to go to Bend in September to meet my newest nephew. (have I told you guys this already?) I made it a point to get to see all of my nieces and nephews that are in town this trip. Family was the priority this go-round.

I have done pretty well on my goals this past month, well…On the ones that I knew I’d do. If that makes sense. Anyway, let’s just hop to it, shall we?

Recap of Monthly Goals:

Integrate new scene into ‘Amelia’ – I’ve only worked on this a little bit. But I did finally save it on a flash drive!

Post Regularly – I missed a few (or more?) that I’d intended to write

Lose weight/work toward health – for more info, check out Health Update Aug/Sept 2017

Read more books on Jewish living –  I’m currently reading Jewish Roots by Dan Juster

Write a letter to one person a month  – nope

Try a new recipe – Mostly this month I’ve thrown meals together but I did make 2 from Against All Grains – the Banana Pancakes and Vanilla Granola. I most likely fudged both recipes, making them with things I had on hand, rather than following them exactly. But they both were yummy and I really want to make the granola again. It was the first time I’d made soaked-nut granola, also oat-free and I loved it!

Watch/Read a documentary/biography – I watched part of Gordon Buchanan’s Tribes Animals and Me.

 

Recap of Sept goals:

Finish Adirondack Chair before the rains come – nope and I doubt now that it’ll get any work done on it until spring/summer next year. For now, it’s sitting in my office. Sad.

Work on Disability – I did call a disability lawyer beginning of this month but haven’t heard back from them. I haven’t called them back either though soo….

Scrapbook Laura’s visit – I’m 3/4 of the way done with it!

Deep Clean bedroom – we bought a bed frame finally! Getting that really helped give me the motivation to finish cleaning the room.

Two things I didn’t think I could do, but I did!

~Drove to a friends’ house and back – that equals an hr drive! I was so excited that I was able to do this!

~Drove to Bend and back! – it’s 3 hours one way so I was nervous about it but I did fine!
