July Goals

June turned out to be a more successful month than it sounds on paper.  June was intended to be the clean up month.  And while I got a lot of stuff cleaned up, there's still more to be done.  Just let me explain, okay?

Here were the June Goals:

  • Finish Craftsy classes.  I was aiming to finish about three classes.  Instead, the only one I finished was my hand embroidery class, but I was still feeling great about finally finishing it, and the dish towel I was working on.  Here's my review of the class.  Plus, I've already finished a second towel in July.  But, then I got an email from Joann's giving me a free Crafts class, so I enrolled in Mexican Street Food (affiliate link)!  It's been on my wishlist for a while.  So, I didn't actually make any headway, but it feels good to finish the old class. 
  • Finish sewing 1/2 the things I've started.  Big fail.  Just hauling it all out was kind of overwhelming. 
  • Finish the books I've started.  I finished two of them, am still reading one, and decided I should restart another one at a later date, so that leaves one book that I still need to deal with: Reading Like a Writer.  And it's on my radar. 
  • Finish cleaning my office.  This one was accomplished on a late night and actually only took a couple hours.  It's not perfect but it's definitely cleaner and I can work in it again without wondering if Hoarders is going to be coming to do an intervention. 
  • Read four books.  I read five! 
  • Finish memorization and finish prayer cards, write daily. Nope to all of them. 
  • Plan the second half of 2016.  Done! 
  • Exercise five times a week.  Uhm.  Nope. 
  • Daily devotions.  Yes, for the majority of days.
So, on to July!

  • Hang up my gallery wall.  This was a goal from February, but I think it may finally happen!  I ordered my prints, bought my frames, have it mapped out on my wall.  It's gonna happen!
  • Write one hour a day, five days a week.  I need to just start setting a timer or something!
  • Cook one new recipe a week.  I'm leaning towards something vegetarian, but I'm not opposed to something I pinned months ago and never got around to trying!
  • Take two fun excursions.  This is just to try to push myself a little more and try new things, or at least get out of the house.
  • Lose four pounds.  I want to shed twenty more pounds by the end of the year, so it's time to get buckled down.
  • Read five books.   I'm a little behind my goal of 48 books for the year, so if I get five down, I'll be nearly back on pace.
  • Sew up two of my WIPs from forever ago.
  • Daily devotions.
  • Love people more. I don't have much of a plan for this one, just trying to remind myself that I need to do better.
