My Goals for This Week 8/3/15- Cabin Fever in the Summer!


This creek at the nature preserve tells how hot and dry it's been here.   Usually it's higher and flowing steady. 


The heat was on last week and someone forgot to turn it off.   I had cabin fever in the summer.  Something we are not used to in Michigan!   Last night's rain bought much needed relief with a high today only in the 70's.  Love it!  

So with that said a lot of things are still on the list including those stones and firepit.   I'll be working on those this week!

Here is how I stayed busy last week:


Zucchini bread Recipe


One early morning I heated up the house a little making Zucchini Bread.   I'm just about ready to make and freeze a few more loaves.  

 Ready to pick beans


After a closer inspection we decided to wait just a tad bit longer on picking all those green beans.   It was hot, dry, and the beans could be just a tad bit fuller.   We picked enough for dinner though.



 Courting Trouble


I had lots of time to read a book and Courting Trouble proved to be a winner.   I picked this copy up at a garage sale for .25 cents!   


Here is what I accomplished last week:


Write a book review.

Hang out the laundry as many times as I can. 

Clean the den.   The den is the hottest part of the house it's really like a sunroom.   

Clean the refrigerator- I cleared out the freezer side last night so half is done.


Go out with girlfriends ...hopefully this week.

Go fishing (take grandson) and remember camera

Keep exercising at least twice a week.   

Earn at least 15 Swagbucks a day.  Since I've been doing this I've earned two gift cards and I'm on my third.   Many times I earn more than 15.

On back on my diet plan (Trim Healthy Mama).   I'm working on this every day.   I'm not perfect but I keep trying!  

Read the Bible more. 


Finish spreading white rocks around flowers.

Continue weeding gardens and harvesting produce

I have been making the fire pit and I'm halfway done -Need to get more bricks from daughter. 




Here is what I hope to accomplish this week:

Write another guest post.
