Another Round of Goals...
If you noticed, I have changed the Weekly Journal Prompt to a Monthly Journal Prompt - for this month only. I think that being thankful is a life long journey. But for this month with the Thanksgiving Holiday prominence, challenging ourselves to be specific about thankfulness seems appropriate.
What do you think? I hope you will take this to heart and, if nothing else, spend a few minutes each day being thankful. I will be posting my list weekly.
Well, I promised to let you know how I did with my October Goals.
Lose 6 pounds - Accomplished
Finish 3 gifts - Accomplished
Have three gifts halfway done - Accomplished
Sort and pack books donated 50% - Accomplished and did better - donated 70%
Secure storage unit - Accomplished
Set up shelves in trailer - Accomplished
Scan pictures and documents - Continuing
Sort kitchen utensils - not done
Clean out trailer storage and repack - Cleaned out, but not repacked - need to finish trailer first
Sort three boxes of my grandma's things - not done
Sort framed pictures - not done
So what else did I accomplish last month? Well, I finished packing all of the living room things and all of the everyday and seasonal decorations. I took several loads of 'stuff' to Goodwill. As a matter of fact, I took a very large load today - back, middle and front seats to the top.
And I began to sort my studio as to what I am taking in the trailer and what I am packing. I even packed all the fabric.
By the way, I am only up to box 28. And all the boxes are either book size (12 X 12 X 12) or small size (12 X 14 X 12)!!! Remember, when I moved in I had well over 200 boxes and all of them larger than what I am using now.
I'll post my November goals tomorrow, but basically, they include getting it all done!!!!
I also read, created and wrote this past month. Here's my latest...
I hope all of you are enjoying the gifts of November...gathering in, thoughts of thankfulness, wonderful soups and stews, nesting...
Thanks for spending some time here...
See you tomorrow...
