2017 Goals Week 12

1.  Completely Finish the New House & Update Property
W put up the rest of the mini-blinds.  I know you are thinking it is crazy to live in a house for 5 months without all of the blinds in.  We live in the country.  Our neighbors would need binoculars to see in our windows.  That would be creepy no matter what window treatments we have.  We have progress even if it is small.

2. Plan Ahead for Birthday & Holiday Gifts
I ordered the book for March's birthday.  I need to keep my eye out for a diaper deal for a baby shower coming up soon.  I also need to choose a bridal shower gift for next month.

3.  Use the Garden to Be More Self-Sufficient
My goal this week is to spend at least one hour a day working in the garden.  I have plenty of weeding to do.  I also need to work on filling a raised bed and transplanting some seedlings and plants.

4.  Take One Class a Month
I am enjoying the French bread class.  My first attempt at baguettes was decent.  I can see where I can improve.  It felt time consuming, but I am sure that will change the more I make it.  The baguettes are perfect for crostini.  I have a second baguette lesson to do this week before moving on to a lesson on additional shapes.

5.  Pack Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes on a Budget
This week was quiet.  I have started checking prices on soap.  I am also continuing to work on wash cloths.  I am halfway done.  It looks like I will not get them all done this month.  I still have plenty of time to finish them.

6.  Boost Savings
My plan for this week is to eat from the freezer and hopefully keep grocery spending to a minimum.  I need to put more focus on the little things that save money.

Looks like you are making great progress on your goals. The French bread looks delicious. We live in the country too and need to still get blinds on some of our windows. It's more to block out the light in the mornings and to shade rooms when it gets too hot in the afternoon...more so than for privacy.
