Goals for the Week of December 6th

My three simple goals for this week.

I feel like I did really well with my goals this past week. I didn’t stick exactly to the cookie dough making, but I did get 5 batches of candy made. So I think I’ll count that as a win.

I also was able to move all of our strawberry plants this week. The wind finally died down and the temperatures warmed up a bit, so on Thursday I spent 2.5 hours moving them. I think we started out a few years ago with about 15 plants. Those 15 have multiplied to over 100. It was a lot of work, but I’m glad to have it done. Now fingers crossed, they all survive.

My goals from last week,

Make Two Batches of Cookie Dough for the Freezer

We ended up making 5 batches of candy this week instead. I’m going to call this a win even though it was candy we made instead of cookie dough.

Finish Christmas Shopping

We picked up the last of our gifts this week. I even was able to get our Christmas cards ordered through Snapfish. (affiliate link) I used the coupon code JOY15 to save 50% off our photo cards and got free shipping too. There is also a coupon code, MERRY60 for 60% off store wide. Both are good through 12/6/2015 so hurry if you need to order your photo cards!

Write 3 Posts this Week

I was able to get my 3 posts written, but I had to retake a set of photos for one of them. I thought they were fine until I viewed them on the computer, which I did after I picked all the equipment up. 🙁

My 3 Simple Goals for this Week

Goal #1

Make two batches of cookie dough and three batches of candy this week with the kids.

Goal #2

Wrap the presents we purchased and address the Christmas cards as soon as they arrive.

Goal #3

Write three posts for this week. It’s hard to get motivated to sit down and work when there is so much to do. I need to keep this goal on my list to keep me accountable to keep up with my writing.

  1. Wow, that’s a lot of strawberry plants! How nice to be able to have that many fresh strawberries each summer 🙂

    I’m feeling your pain about sitting down to work while there is so much else to be done. I did get my whole house cleaned from top to bottom this morning and the laundry is almost done…so at least that’s out of the way for now. I’m hoping to get the rest of my gift guides posted and a sponsored post written this week.

    Have a great week Shell!
