My Goals for this Week 10/19/15


The scenic view of our trip up north last year

We accomplished my main goal of not eating out last week!   It's was hard but we made it through.   Saved some money too!  You can see what was served here at our house last week here.   

We will be eating out this week because we have plans to go up north for a scenic tour of the Fall leaves one day. Picnics that we have had in previous years haven't worked out well.  We have either ended up eating in them in the car or trembling by the picnic table because of the cold.   Not fun!


Here is what I managed to get done last week:


Write a book review.

A week without eating out.   Even though we always get a good deal when eating out I would love to see if we could go a full week with out it.  Since we been busy babysitting beautiful granddaughter I wanted a day without being in the kitchen. 

Start Cleaning Up the Garden.  I'll be pulling up the tomato cages and stacking them today.  Why today?   It's going to be 20 degrees cooler tomorrow!   

Finish daughter's flower garden.

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

Start cleaning and sorting the pantry.

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.   

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


Here is what I hope to accomplish this week:

Office Work

Write a book review.

House and Garden Work:

Finish daughter's flower garden.  We are almost finished -just need to get the old dead rose bush out of there.  It will be warmer towards the end of the week.

Stack tomato cages that were pulled and hopefully husband will get a good day to plow the garden.

Plant garlic after husband tills the garden.

Sort the boxes that hold that hats and gloves.

Sort my kitchen cabinet that holds the spices and baking supplies.


Personal Goals

Take a fall tour up north.

Exercise in some form -yoga or walking as much as possible. 

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