August Goals

1 August 2013

Welcome to a brand new month, friends! August is here, and it is going to be marvelous!

Blueberry picking at Buckwheat Farm!

July was full and wonderful, capped off by our week long trip to Northern Michigan. Last month we also managed to organize the loft, which serves as a crafting and storage space for my shop. It had been a hot mess since moving day, but no more! Pictures to come soon! We also hung several pieces of art downstairs and have plans for several more. My bike is in the shop for its tune-up as we speak, and last night (squeaking in under the wire!) I submitted my life insurance application. We decided to postpone a rain barrel for the moment — for some reason I was under the impression that we could get one from our town for $10, but it’s actually $85 :(

August is shaping up to be quite busy — it’s traditionally one of the most hectic at work for me, and we’ll also be in New England for ten days. Therefore, my main goal this month is to spend the free time I DO have wisely, and then enjoy each minute to the full! Especially looking forward to lots of family time, boat rides, long walks, and lungfuls of the pine salt air that sings “Maine” to me. A few additional goals:

— Read To Kill a Mockingbird for no. 13 (my favorite book of all time — worth reading over and over!)
— Start the retirement series for Marvelous Money (whoo!)
— Host an adventure dinner party for no. 41 (WHOO!!)
— Help lead a service at the Island for no. 50
— Refinish our dining room table
— Hang our gallery wall!
— Hang our master bedroom curtains

You can see all of my 101 in 1001 goals here and my 2013 daily goals here. If you’d like to share your goals for August, I’d love for you to either list them in the comments or leave a link, and I promise I’ll check them out!

  1. I’m so excited to see some pictures of the house! And hear more about what this adventure party is….

  2. So, so excited to see you in Maine soon, Em!

  3. I love that To Kill a Mockingbird is your favorite book!!! It was one of my favorites in high school!! After reading your 101 in 1001 from a few years ago, I was also inspired to do one of my own, I haven’t gotten too far on it sadly, but I am trying to make it more of a habit to check my list! I have been wanting/meaning to get a gallery wall all set up, but I haven’t even gotten prints made yet! Yay for organization, I bet it feels so much better!! :)

  4. To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my all-time favorite books, too! I definitely make a habit of re-reading my favorite books every year or two.
