My Goals for this Week 9/28/15 and My Favorite Things this Past Week

Some of my favorite things this past week:


Eclipse.
The moon was half gone when I took this picture!


I enjoyed watching the eclipse last night but I gave up on taking pictures.   You would think that I wouldn't have a problem with a clear sky.  Every picture I took though looks just like a full moon! Probably need a better camera to capture it.

I stayed up long enough to see the moon covered up and then decided it was my bedtime! 






It was so much fun going to the grandson's 6 birthday party!   He told his Mom the next day, "Mom I'm six now your treating me like I'm 5."


Mustard Greens -Vickie's Kitchen and Garden


Yes, the mustard greens were one of my favorite things last week.   We had enough to pick for dinner but I was glad in a way they had slowed down their growth.  I needed a break from canning!  Now, I'm ready and I'm praying for a good rain to make them grow more. Don't you feel sorry for God listening to people like me.  I imagine him saying what does she want now...a break then a rain!  



What I managed to get done last week:



Write a book review.
Write another guest post- working on this now!  I have to take pictures and then I'm through.

Continue to harvest Mustard Greens and can them towards the later part of the week. I canned 7 quarts (2 bushels) and would like to can another 7 this week.

Plant tulip bulbs that I purchased.

Make up spice mixes that are getting low.  Cooler weather has brought my cooking indoors.   I need to make up chili seasoning next week.

Harvest rosemary and thyme.  I believe I overplanted my burlap bag but there is still some to harvest and dry.  One plant would have been plenty.

Exercise in some form -yoga or walking as much as possible. I walked the beautiful grand baby in her stroller every day I had her.  I'm not going to set a number I think just make sure I exercise as much as my schedule will allow.   We even went bike riding one night.

Earn at least 15 Swagbucks a day.  Since I've been doing this I've earned three $5.00 gift cards!  Many times I just earn this by searching.

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

Read the Bible more.  I've been concentrating on memorizing bible verses.  I totally blew this last week.


Here is what I hope to accomplish this week:

Office Work

Write a book review.

Write another guest post- working on this now!  I'm pretty much done and need to let my smart daughter Eva proofread it.   She always talks about my run on sentences!  

Kitchen and Garden Work:

Continue to harvest Mustard Greens and can them towards the later part of the week. I canned 7 quarts (2 bushels) and would like to can another 7 this week. Without a good rain the mustard greens did not grow as well.  Rain is in the forecast for tomorrow so hopefully they will be bigger later this week.

Make up spice mixes that are getting low.  Cooler weather has brought my cooking indoors.   I need to make up chili seasoning next week.

Clean the refrigerator before I shop this week!
