Well hard to believe that it is the beginning of August already.
Well this month is going to look a little bit different. We actually have a ton of stuff going on. Sarah leaves for 5 days for a dance camp. (Hubby and I will be all alone for 3 of those days!!!!!!! ) We have two birthdays. ( Hubbies, and our middle son's) Also I have an anniversary to attend and my niece is getting married. Sarah is usher and I am making her a quilt that she is having everyone sign and doing the baking. So needless to say...
Oh yea and did I mention school is starting back up at the end of the month?
What can I say we thrive on being busy I guess.
Good thing I really enjoyed my down time in July. :)
Oh yes and then there is picking the garden and freezing the produce. Hopefully some canning thrown in for a little fun. LOL
So instead of 3 specific goals I am having 3 general ones with some specific points in each.
1. Work on me.
This is going to include daily bible study, working out at least 3 times a week on the elliptical, drinking at least 1.5 litres of water a day and I am also hoping I can get in the routine of using a prayer journal. I also want to try and keep the house orderly. I know when everything is tidied up and organized I feel so much better.
2. The stuff for my niece's wedding.
I have all the jean material that I have on hand cut out. Today I am running to town to grab some coordinating fabric and some more old jeans from the thrift store. I am hoping to have all the blocks cut out by the end of next week. (Fingers crossed) I also need to do the baking. About 6 cookie sheets of squares and probably 5 dozen cookies. Once I get started it will go fairly fast. I just got to get started, the wedding is on the 24th.
3. Getting ready for our next journey.
School is starting up again in a little less than a month so I need to get the planning done. I have tackled the school area and tidied it up, now I just need to find a home for all the stuff that was just put there. LOL
I am also trying hard to get my cookie dough business up and going. I am going to use all the profits to help fund our adoption. I really hope this works as I am not sure how else I can bring in some money to help. :)
Well here is to the month of August. May it be full of memories, love and laughter.
I am linking up today with Aurie come on over and set some goals for yourself this month. :)
