October Progress Goals Update!

I have really enjoyed sharing the goals that I had for the year! I’m not sure if anyone actually reads them/or is interested, but I’m pretty proud of not giving up after 1 month!

1. Begin beekeeping: Our bees are doing great! I need to winterize the hives. I also, with lots of help, tried to save a tree hive. But they didn’t make it. But overall this has been a good season!

2. Make a pollinator garden: I can say that we have definitely completed this challenge! So many different flowers!✔️

Echinecea is even growing finally! 

3. Vacation somewhere different:(Now that the boy is getting older!) The boy went to a weekend scout camp, but nothing else new to report


4. No new fashion in 2016: I know most females would freak out over this one! I didn’t get a single item again! So, this is pretty much a ✔️
5. Reduce garbage: (Did you know the average American produces 4.4 lbs of garbage per day?!?!) Only 1 bag of garbage this month from the kitchen. We also had to throw out some unusable items from the garage.
6. Complete the 2016 in 2016 challenge: That means getting rid of 2016 things in our home this year! We really got caught up this month! I’m loving this challenge!

1,654 items out of here!!

7. Finish the kitchen remodel: We still need the baseboard put in, but that’s it! We will be finished this year!
8. Build an arbor and plant some grapes:Still at a stand still! But the grapes won’t be growing anymore this year and the posts are set. This is kind of a completed!

9. Expand the garden: We have definitely completed this for the year! We added on several raised beds and a three sisters garden! So we can give this a ✔️

Garlic for next year! 

10. Preserve more food: I think I can definitely check this off! We canned so many green beans, tomato sauces, jams/jellies! We are already loving the taste of summer in our canned food!


11. Organize the least organized place in the house, the garage: I got rid of so many items from the garage! I’m hoping to have a craft show here this month or next in there!
12. Treat my crafting more like a business: Only a few online sales, but I sold a good bit at 3 different craft shows this weekend!

Craft showing!!

13. Work on budgeting and paying down the house: We had a certain number that we were shooting for being at for the end of the year, and we are there already! So this goal is already a big ✔️!

Only 2 months to go!!! How are your goals going?!?

  1. I think it would be good for me to write deadlines for my goals otherwise it is so easy to let them drift on. That said, life is said to something that happens when you’re busy making other plans, and I’m glad of an up-coming opportunity, though perhaps not the need to buy a new car (opportunity and car not related).
