What I'd Like to Get Done This Week ~ February 3, 2020 ~ Updated 2/8/20


Hello!

So good of you to drop in today.  

I've been thinking of things I would like to get done over the next week or so.  You know how it is. Always something to do. So, here are some things I hope to do this week. I think I'll come back here and change the items to italics as I do them just to give myself a little encouragement along the way.



Planning: 
  • menu
  • grocery list ~ My sweet man did my Aldi shopping for me! I ordered some grocery items online for pick up at Walmart, too. They'll bring it right to my car Saturday at noon! I got $10 off my first order. You can try it too if you use this link:  http://r.wmt.co/v/laura_2516
  • projects ~ I've got a list of ideas and it's growing!

Cooking:  

  • wheat bread ~ Monday
  • baked chocolate chip cookies with my eldest son
  • jalapeno jelly - I'll have to put this off until next week. 

Reading:  I need to make a service announcement here. ~giggle~ I am not going to finish all of these books this week. I am merely reading a bit of all these books this week. I'm not a speed reader. I just thought I'd put them all here so that I can make some progress in each of them. This list is just to motivate me.
  • YouVersion's Canonical Reading Plan. ~ Reading Jeremiah now. It's a long book!
  • The Hobbit by Tolkien for my book club ~ I've listened to a a couple of chapters.
  • An Island Christmas by Nancy Thayer. Yes I'm that girl who loves Christmas stories year round! I did finish this one.
  • God's Will for You by Gloria Copeland ~ I've read a few pages.
  • Mother Culture by Karen Andreola to pg 96
  • Walden by Thoreau 
  • Papa's Wife ~ read a bit on Monday
Knitting:
  • Knit with friends Tuesday evening
  • Finish the socks on my needles ~ All done! They're laying in my gift box waiting for Christmas.
Sewing:
  • More bowl cozies ~ I made five!
Studying:
  • Blogging resources
Working:  
  • List two items on my Ebay
  • Lots and lots of laundry
  • Look for mending that needs to be done. I actually threw out two items that were too badly worn to be mended.
Writing:
  • Work on cookbook
  • Blog post planning
  • Write two or more blog posts this week.
  • Enjoy candlelight
  • Prepare lamps with new wicks and oil.
  • Spend a couple hours with a good book and a nice candle
  • Meet a friend at the local coffee shop

If I finish all this list, I'll have been very busy indeed. I also need to spend time with my kids and do some ironing and cleaning. Thanks so much for dropping in! I'd love to hear some of your plans for this week. It's so nice to have a chat over the back fence  internet with you today!

  1. That would surely make for a busy week. That is a lot of books for one week - I do maybe one or two on a good week!
    Don't over do it - and remember to relax and enjoy!
    Blessings

    1. I've been quite busy, and I won't finish, but I did get a lot done. I am not going to finish all those books, I'll just read a bit of each one. Progress....
      Blessings,
      Laura

  3. Wow! You have a busy week planned! I love Karen Andreola. Though I've not read Mother Culture, her Charlotte Mason Companion was my ever-present friend through my homeschooling years. And I would love to read Walden. That has been on my want-to-read list for 5 years now. I need to get at it!!

    Blessings,
    Patti

  8. I absolutely love Nancy Thayer!
    My favorite book of hers is Three Women At The Waters Edge.
    Papas Way is great! I have the trilogy by Therese Bjorn and read them all at least a half dozen times.
    Do you find that writing things done either before or after doing them helps you to accomplish more?
    I’m looking for a way to do that.
    Thanks for writing. I enjoy every post.
    God bless,
    Helen
