My Goals for this Week 11/3/15

Completed fireplace surround -Vickie's Kitchen and Garden


I can't believe that I was able to finish my fireplace surround yesterday. This is November and it was 70 degrees...in Michigan. Can you believe it? This had been on my goal list all summer and I was finally able to find time to get it done! If the weather holds up we could have a bonfire this weekend. Fun!  



Fireplace surround needed help!  -Vickie's Kitchen and garden

I just wanted you to see this picture to let you know that not everything goes right the first time.  This was what it looked like before we decided to buy pea gravel to help make the blocks more level.  It takes trial and some error I guess.

While I was at it I got some white rock to place on the front path leading to the house. I underestimated the amount of rock it would take to get the job done though. I may be able to get more and finish the job by the end of the week.  All depending if the weather stays nice.



Here is what I accomplished last week:

Write a book review.

Company Logo

Finish reading Crystal Paine's (Money Saving Mom)  new book Money Making Mom.  Without giving too much away let me say so far I'm picking up a lot of great tips and some much needed encouragement.     You can read my review here. 

Finish the surround for the fire pit in the backyard. Depending on the weather.

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

Clean the top and inside of the refrigerator.

Finish infinity scarf and make more dish scrubbies.  The scarf and the scrubbies are both pretty simple patterns. Something I can do while watching T.V.

Go out for Breakfast with my husband. 

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.



Here is what I hope to accomplish:


Office Work

Write a book review.


House and Garden Work:

Clean out both of my closets.

Clean the top shelf of the front closet.

Get more rock for the front path if this beautiful weather holds out.

Start putting outdoor umbrellas, chairs, etc. in storage. 
I was using these yesterday but I know our time before winter hits is very limited.   


Crocheting

Finish infinity scarf and make more dish scrubbies.  The scarf and the scrubbies are both pretty simple patterns. Something I can do while watching T.V.  (I got half of the scarf done last week)



Personal Goals

Take grandson on his day off if possible to the Bear Store. Of course granddaughter will come too!  

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. I need to get back to doing this.

Read the Bible and memorize more scripture.
