June 2018 Goals Wrap Up

I’m a little late with my June Goals Wrap-up. June was a busy month!

Green = Successful, Purple = Partially successful, Red = Not accomplished at all.

  • Surviving Jr Master Naturalist camp (every morning) the first week of June (I even had fun!!)
  • Keep Quicken caught up for 2018
  • Prepare for house guests later in June, including putting away yarn and Christmas boxes in the guest room
  • Plan some fun outings for the last two weeks of June while Kat, Fiona, Freddy, and Blackie are visiting – they were only here for one week and it was so very hot, they didn’t want to do anything
  • Work towards finishing the auction/probate legal stuff on my dad’s estate
  • Complete DCMGA Newsletter for July 2nd publication date
  • Continue regular blogging here on Musings, Mischief, and Mayhem
  • Continue walking / exercising – more swimming & yard work than walking
  • 100% ETL and continued weight loss – I have a major weight goal to reach by June 17th – I did make my goal, briefly, and then bounced back up a couple of pounds. This seems to be my normal pattern. Then it takes another 2-3 weeks to get back down to that goal weight, and then I can begin losing more. Odd, but that seems to be what happens every time.
  • Set up the plant terrarium for my begonia cuttings/rootings
  • Finish one picture project – the one for Mom’s very belated Mother’s Day gift
  • Decide on paint color for new inside wall of the bonus room with help from Kat & Fiona

Time to set some July goals!!

Already accomplished this month are making sure the gutter guy came back and finished up the downspouts to the rain barrels and mailing off my cousin’s wedding gift afghan.

May 2018 Goals Wrap-Up

May was a very busy month, which explains why I only managed three blog posts the whole month.  Hopefully I’ll do better in June!

Even though May was busy, I did manage to keep up with several goals.

Green = Successful, Purple = Partially successful, Red = Not accomplished at all.

  • Keep Quicken caught up for 2018 (huzzah!)
  • Catch up on the housecleaning, including putting away yarn and Christmas boxes in the guest room
  • Order soil/mulch to fill the veggie bed and other beds as needed
  • Plan dates for our trip to NY and possibly combine with a trip to AL/FL
  • Work towards finishing the auction/probate legal stuff on my dad’s estate
  • Complete DCMGA Newsletter for June 1st publication date
  • Continue regular blogging here on Musings, Mischief, and Mayhem
  • Continue walking / exercising
  • 100% ETL and continued weight loss (down 10 pounds since January 1st!!!)
  • Do one picture project
  • Decide on paint color for new inside wall of the bonus room

In addition, I began crocheting an afghan for Fiona’s dog, Blackie (he keeps stealing hers when they are sleeping!), finished the compost bin area flower bed (adding  ore soil, filling in with more plants, and mulching), and just generally spent a lot of time outside with my plants/gardens while it was still relatively cool.  I also attended a multitude of Master Gardener meetings and activities, including the Garden Tour on May 12.  We took friends with us and made a day of it – lots of fun.

Tomorrow I’ll post my June goals.
