Setting Monthly Goals for October 2021
If you read this blog regularly, you know that I’m a big fan of monthly goals. I keep them simple and usually include at least one fun goal that is something I know I will enjoy.
First, Let’s Look at September Goals
With my kids going to public school (in person, for the first time since March 2020) and I am only blogging and freelancing as a photographer and writer from home (not teaching myself), I made good progress on my September goals.
I swam on weekdays, made great progress on my book, and finished sewing my bag. Isn’t it pretty?
It was a lot more complicated than my messenger bag to put together! I enjoyed making it and learned a couple of new techniques. I couldn’t find the exact pattern I used online, but it’s very similar to this Annie Unrein bag.
We threw a fun pool party for Anna. I still need to schedule Lily’s birthday party.
Mike and I enjoyed weekly dates.
October 2021 Goals
Here are my goals for this month:
- Keep swimming on weekdays. Focus: mindfulness
- Keep up with the Linus mystery quilt challenge I signed up for. Focus: education
- Finish the manuscript for my book! Focus: education
- Schedule Lily’s birthday celebration and hopefully fit it into this month as well. Focus: gratitude
- Keep up weekly dates with Mike. Focus: gratitude
- Sew Anna’s Halloween costume. She wants to dress up as Sara from A Little Princess. I love that she chose a book character this year! Focus: gratitude
- Keep blogging here, as well as at least a little at Great Family Reads and Top Toy Finds. Focus: education
