2016 Goals: September

The months just continue to fly by! I want October to slow down - it's one of my favourite months and I would like to enjoy it to the fullest!

16 GOALS FOR 2016:
  1. Read 30 books. 31/30 (YES!) 
  2. Try 16 new Ottolenghi recipes. 5/16
  3. Try 16 new (loose-leaf) teas. 16/16 
  4. Put up shelves and organize craft room. Make it inspiring. (There's still some organizing to do, but this is mostly complete. Our rowing machine has been moved down here and it doesn't feel cluttered, so I consider that a win.)
  5. Finish Amber art book - this year I WILL! (Only a few pages left!)
  6. Work in sketchbook daily. (Not daily, but at least weekly.)
  7. Blog weekly. (A slump compared to August, but hopefully cooler weather will help inspire me to cozy up under the laptop)
  8. Finish 2 cross-stitch samplers. (My goal for this month is to finish November and start on December.)
  9. Travel somewhere new. (Eastern Canada)
  10. Sign up for and pass my SOCRA certification.
  11. Make an inventory of all my books. (This has been on my to-do list for so long.. I really want to get it done this year!)
  12. Wake up earlier and practice yoga every morning evening. (I started a 30min daily routine last week and so far so good!)
  13. Make a weekly meal plan and prep veggies on the weekend. (Keeping up with this one pretty consistently.)
  14. Get rid of junk we never use (i.e. downsize our "things") and organize storage and spare spaces. (Step one: wardrobe (half done at this point). Step two: under-the-stairs storage.)
  15. Work on making the backyard nicer (plant flowers, landscape, garden). (At this point, this goal is pretty low priority..)
  16. Set reminders in my phone to make me check in on my goals at least monthly (and blog about it). (8/12 monthly reviews - missed June.)
This month I will continue to work on #8 & #14 and put a dent into #2.

What goals have you crossed off your list lately?
