I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, but I write down some goals for the new year. This year I separated Household/Yard/Remodel Goals from my personal goals.
Household/ Yard Goals:
Gravel on the driveway
Buy a new weedeater( B’s died last fall)
Replace B’s office windows and restructure the wall.
Fix the carport roof( needs support beams added and a new felt roof)
Support under the house( this is an old house with a post and beam support system which frankly sucks)
I’m sure there are more…..
Some personal goals:
Keep on keeping on! I actually have a list I’m working on so I’ll update it when it’s done.
Keep using cash envelopes for some things. This has worked out well and I plan on continuing with food, misc, chicken food, and household the main ones.
Wow, have we gotten rain. There is flooding everywhere and the ground is saturated. We have a break today and then more rain is due this week. Well, we do need it.
Today we started the New Year with a walk, of course. I put a loaf of sourdough in the oven and then put my starter in the fridge. I’ll not make any more bread for a while as I have been freezing at least half of each loaf. I do plan on making a sandwich loaf in the bread maker later this week though.
This week I plan on swimming and going to the gym at least once. I’d like to swim at least 2x but I’ll see how the week shapes up.
My labs came back with a 1.7 increase in Kappa Light chains so I’m now at 27.7mg/L. That’s still fairly low so I’m ok with it and there wasn’t a big jump. It’s when there starts to be doubling increases, I’ll start to worry. 😦

Keep on keeping on – sounds quite sensible !
I do have some goals I’m working on too though.
I’m so happy to see you’re still blogging!! Your goals are wonderful, and I do agree with cash, much easier to stay on track that way! I hope you’re doing well! 💞
Hi Carla, I thought I recognized your name. I’m doing well and still doing the same old same old. How about you? are you still in Nova Scotia was it?? Your kids must be almost grown up. Are you still sewing??
Depends.. we were here 5 years ago and now are back.. lol! This time to stay… And yes, my babies are much older now, oldest 2 stayed in Ontario and youngest 2 are with us. Yes, still sewing!!
I do remember your move to Ontario. It was a cute house. Do you still have a blog?
Just started my new blog… https://thrivingsimply.ca
I hope you aren’t floating away or snowed under with all the rain and snow in your area! House are a never ending source our goals aren’t they. I look forward to hearing what this year is like for you and that perhaps we will meet in person.
We made it thru this one but it was rough with the rain and wind. In the past, we’ve gone to a hotel when the wind gusts go over 50mph. This time the gust got to maybe 40. We have still so many 100 ft ponderosas that it can get very scary. And, I think it was about 10 years ago when that huge storm went thru we did have 3 huge trees fall, one right after the other. Thankfully they did miss the house. It would be so much fun to meet in person. If you move to the Berkeley area, maybe then?
We are looking every day at homes coming on the market near our son. So far nothing we would like to buy but it is a strange house buying time. We haven’t even lined up a realtor yet but seriously thinking about it. So maybe we will get to meet later this year!
