Ah, the last day of February!  Time to evaluate my month's goals and set new ones for March.

February's Goals: How Did I Do?

Bible: Study the Book of Romans (Um, no.  Again, I totally let this slip, and I feel awful about it.)

Craft: Learn to Knit (This I managed to do.  I made a couple of swatches (like this one) using the knit stitch.  I'm still learning to purl.)

  • Finish Entries for Festival of Breads (Done.)
  • Valentine's Day (Done, I guess.  DangerBear and I decided we weren't really doing anything special for Valentine's Day this year.)
  • Catch Up on Household Filing (Done.  Wow, does that feel great!  I had a stack of paper about eight inches high, but I forgot to take a picture.)
  • Start Tracking Expenses (Nope.  I just kept putting it off.)
No, I didn't accomplish all of my goals, but I did more than I would have done if I hadn't set goals at all.  I'm trying to look at what worked and what didn't, so I'll have more success in March.

Goals for March

Bible: This month, I'm going to try something different.  I have an audio Bible, so I think I'm going to try listening to the Bible in the car when I pick up/drop off Chickpea at school.  That should work out to at least an hour each week.  To keep me accountable, I've added a little widget to my sidebar.  Bible Shared will let me track my progress, in terms of chapters read.

Craft: I'm going to continue with knitting.  I thought I'd be able to pick up the purl stitch really quickly, but I still need more practice.  My goal is to make a pretty little square with a heart design.  It should go quickly once I get the hang of it.

  • Set up some kind of system to deal with papers, so I don't keep getting buried!
  • Research and start planning our garden (also known as Chickpea's farm business).
  • Straighten up the house at least once each day.
  • Completely clean the kitchen before going to bed, including unloading the dishwasher.
  • Follow my laundry routine.  (Wash clothes on Monday and linens on Wednesday.)
  • Take my multivitamin every day.
  • Drink at least three glasses of water each day.  (Our drinking glasses hold about 12 oz.)

    you did a great job on your goals! I sort of forgot mine. lol. Though, I have been keeping the kitchen clean and that in itself is a huge mood lifter. ;) :D

    For my reading I've been trying to get through Isaiah. This isn't a light reading book of the Bible that's for sure, and with the kids noise, I sure am having a hard time concentrating and meditating on it. I need to find a time when it's quiet. haha. ;) ♥

    Thanks, Sarah! Keeping the kitchen clean is definitely a mood lifter. I always feel so much better when I know my kitchen is neat and tidy. I'm hoping you find some quiet time to do your Bible study.
