November Goals

Well, we're already almost a week into November. Time to update the monthly goals.  Before we get to November's goals, here's how September went.
  •  Set weekly goals.  I did this most weeks, and it really did seem to help me get stuff done that needed to be done.  I'm going to try to keep this habit going.
  • Read four books.  Nope.  Only got two done.
  • Sew 20 things.  Nope.  Sewed zero.
  • Clean my office/sewing room.  It's not as clean as I'd like, but it's much more usable now and in pretty good shape.
  • Start Christmas shopping.   Yep, we've started.  I also have some ideas cooking and am hoping to finish before December 1st.
  • Come up with morning and evening routines.  I think we're getting there.  In the last week I've started getting up an hour later which seems to be giving me more energy when I get home from work.  I've also worked on breaking tasks up into chunks.  Like, instead of starting a blog post from start to finish, I may just edit the pictures in the morning and then write it up after I get home.  And, I've been coming home on some of my lunches and throwing in a load of laundry or taking pictures when needed, or getting some errands done.  I live like four minutes from work so it's nice to run home to do something or cross something off the to do list.
Now, on to November.

November Goals
  • Read four books.  I don't think I'll make my goal of 48, but am hoping to beat last years total of 38 books.
  • Sew everyday.  Even if it's only a seam or putting a zipper in.  I think I get in my head that it's not worth turning the sewing machine on unless I have a couple hours to spend sewing, when really something is better than nothing.
  • Drink 64 oz of water a day.  This is less than I should be, but I think I'm not drinking nearly enough so 64 would be a start.
  • Pray daily.  I want to focus on a friend of family member each day and just spend a few minutes praying for them.
  • 10 minutes of planning in the morning.  I think it's important to just kind of go over what I want to get done for the day, how my goals are going, and have a little peace before I get started and out the door.  
And that's it.  I'm making it a pretty easy month on myself, but I want to focus on these things and work upwards from that.  Head over to My So Called Chaos to check out everyone else's goals for the month.
