May Goals


I plan to be harvesting strawberries and rhubarb. I plant to plant these vegetables and more (this is only about 1/3 of what I plant). Friday we will be going back to the Amish produce auction to hopefully be able to get the last of the vegetables we plant as it is a lot cheaper to buy it there than even the green house.

I plan to eat more from the pantry, eat 5 veggies and 3 fruit a day along drinking more water and walking the perimeter more often with the dogs. I plan to start back up on my yoga that I had to quit doing while dealing with the nose issues.I plan to be better organized about our meals. I don't think I can do the cook today, left over tomorrow as our one son does because Hubby takes leftovers for his lunch. I will have to make sure I prep as with the gardens going in and everything else, I won't want to walk in the house at 4 pm and wonder how to get dinner on the table by 5 pm when everything is frozen. I do have an Instantpot that two of my kids rave about their own. They forget to thaw and it seems to save them from eating out. One is single and the other is a family of 7 (or more depending on how many friends are at the table).

I plan to continue "decluttering/down sizing" what we have and deep cleaning and winterizing as I go.

I plan to finish getting stuff to start using the smoker that is attached to our grill and to use BOTH regularly.

I plan to create a picnic area close to the grill, an area for the portable fire pit and deal with a couple areas that we step off the front porch that is starting to be a mud spot instead of a grass area.

I plan to do my sewing on a regular bases. No sense having the fabric if I'm not going to use it.

I plan to start working on some afghans that the family needed mended and crafts for the Christmas gifts and new great grandson that is due in Aug.

I plan to paint the room I want to turn into my craft room.

I plan to get out of bed earlier as I think I am starting to over sleep...after of years of not sleeping well, the nose surgery side benefit was I can stay asleep. I didn't have sleep apena, was tested for that more than once.

I have a some classes I want to do that are available when I can work them in.

Have a Great May.

Blessed Be
