Goals For June


As you might have expected most of my attention and spare time has been spent on Laverne.  We even managed to take her out for a weekend getaway, which is exactly one of the many reasons I bought her.  Still, I did manage to get a few things done around the house.  Quite a few, in fact.


But first this is what I have planned for this month:

1.          Make or purchase a gift for someone
2.         Send a card or letter to someone
3.         Family Nite Out or Outing
4.         Be creative - sew or craft something
5.         Do some investment cooking
6.         Go on a hike
7.         Learn to do something new
8.         Take my children out for a thrifty date
9.         Complete a small home improvement project
10.       Try another new recipe
11.        Sell something on eBay
12.        Enjoy a Family Movie Nite or a Family Game Nite!
13.        Complete a retirement project
14.       Donate something (or some things) to the thrift store
15.        Invite guests over for dessert, appetizers or a meal

Left is before; right is after
Wow!  Big difference!

And without further ado, this is how I did last month:

1.          Make or purchase a gift for someone
2.         Send a card or letter to someone
3.         Family Nite Out or Outing
4.         Be creative - sew or craft something
5.         Do some investment cooking refried beans
6.         Go on a hike
7.         Learn to do something new  restored some cabinets!
8.         Take my children out for a thrifty date
9.         Spring clean the kitchen pantry
10.       Try a new recipe vegan carrot cake - yum!
11.        Go through and organize camping equipment
12.        Enjoy a Family Movie Nite and a Family Game Nite!
13.        Refinish motorhome cabinetry  that was just the tip of the iceberg!
14.       Clean garage
15.        Invite guests over for dessert, appetizers or a meal

Pulled a boatload of weeds

And the rain finally stopped so I was able to complete this one from last month:

11.        Prune the fruit trees


I also completed this from several months back:

9.         Complete a small home improvement project rebuilt the front gate

Spruced up the barn star

May was a pretty darn good month, I'd say.  I'm looking forward to getting some more things done in June.  How are things going with you?  Any major, or minor, projects tackled and accomplished?

  1. Kudos on all your accomplishments! I really like the way you write your lists--some work items, some fun items. Laverne is adorable and I enjoy seeing all your improvements to her. I'm sure Laverne appreciates it--doesn't every gal love a makeover? :^)

I have someone coming over tomorrow to give me a quote on some yard work and hauling away my branch pile plus couch and chair...I should be able to keep up with the yard work after it's done...completing small quilts, hooked rugs and punch needle pieces is also on my list...Love Laverne and all the work you're putting in to her...she's a doll!
