My Big List of Goals I’m Going to Accomplish in 2022 Week 18 of 52

Posted by admin on

Here’s my big list of things I want to accomplish in 2022:

Remodel The Kitchen

This is our current setup. Pretty awesome don’t you think? 

The {panel ready} dishwasher the HH ordered is still on backorder and we’re still waiting for the stove and the light fixture for over the sink. The next step is to install a new kitchen window.

After that we’ll have the electrician come out and move a few outlets and can lights so they’ll match up with the new cupboards that will be going in later this summer. 

Once the electrician does his bit, then we’ll be able to patch the walls, paint and get ready for cabinets. Yee-Haw.

Sell Enough Rugs to Buy an AGA Stove {$12,237.80 of $22,000 earned so far}

I sold 1 new piece last week and will be adding 12-14 more pieces to my Etsy shop on May 14th. 🙂 

Fill the Canning Cupboard 

Although the canning cupboard is in place, now we just need to add a boatload of home canned goodness to the cupboard. 

So far this year I have canned:

Earn Enough Money Selling {?????} To Pay For Our 2022 Grocery Tab By The End Of The Year.

I think I’ll just have to wait until things calm down before I list my beach finds. 

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables.

We were over near Whitefield yesterday so we stopped by the Amish stand and bought doughnuts and hand pies for breakfast. YUM-O!

Keep The Crafts… In The Craft Room.

Finally! The dining room has been put back together. Now comes the tricky part, keeping the crafts out of that space. This week I plan on organizing my craft space as well as the basement so the spaces have a better flow to them. 

Tap Our 2 Maple Trees and Make Maple Syrup {DONE}

It was a good experience, and we’re going to do it again next year {although I would like to find a few more trees to tap so our yield is a bit higher}. 

Make a Quilt Top

I made zero progress on my quilt top this past week. But I have until the end of the year to complete this goal so I’m not too worried about it. 

Be More Intentional With My Time

The puggle princess and I took a nice long nap yesterday… and it was lovely. 

1 Craft / Blog Free Day So far I’m 15 for 18 this year. 

Keep My Husband Busy 

The HH worked mostly in the backyard this week trimming up and thinning out trees. I suspect he’ll pull out the wood chipper next to get rid of all the branches that are still on the ground.

After that, he next projects include giving the dinghy engine and riding lawn mower a tune up, mowing and getting the dock and dinghy in the water. Then… we’ll order our 4 cords of firewood. 🙂 And after that, he can fill in the field with topsoil for me so I can get my garden planted by the end of the month. 

The honey do list. It never ends. 🙂

The HH’s Honey Do List {so far} for 2022

  • Take over cooking {I’ll still do the baking and canning}
  • Cut down the cluster of trees in the backyard DONE
  • Build a new set of stairs down to the water. 
  • Fill the field {with soil} 
  • Remodel 1 bathroom
  • Replace fireplace tile
  • Build window boxes for the front of the house
  • Build an arbor for the wisteria
  • Order 4 cords of firewood by the end of May and stack them in an artful way {like they did in the book Norwegian Wood}.
  • Sand the floors in the entire house DONE
  • Install new garage door openers {new addition}
  • Build a wood shed {new addition}

My House Projects For This Year {so far}

I finished painting the floors in the guest room {the floor was blue when we moved in} and although it took 4 coats of white paint, it was worth it. It’s a much lighter space than it was before, and that’s a good thing. 

Eventually we plan on replacing the half pine, half plywood floors in there with all pine flooring {we’ll do it at the same time we re-do my craft space}. But for now, I’m happy with the way it turned out. 

All that’s left to do now is wait for the set of light and breezy curtains and rod I ordered to arrive so the HH can hang it up and to eventually find a pine desk to put in there. And maybe find a proper nightstand too {because right now we’re using one of our old kitchen cabinets!}. 😉 

  • Finish painting the outside of the house
  • Finish painting the inside of the house {working on it}
  • Make something to hang above our new console table
  • Make it look like people actually live here HA HA HA
  • New window treatment for the kitchen window

Ginger Pear Jam

Try 24 New Recipes {9 down, 15 to go}

So far this year I have shared the following recipes:

Listen to 12 Audiobooks

I’m still listening to Taste by Stanley Tucci. 

Audiobooks I’ve listened to this year:  

Get a Fishing License and Catch a Fish

But first, we have to get the dinghy in the water {hopefully next weekend?}

My List of Garden Projects For This Year I want to Accomplish

I was supposed to get all my pepper and tomatoes transplanted to larger containers yesterday but we ended up going on an adventure so I’ll get it done today. Once I’m done with that, I’ll get my herbs and a few other seeds started indoors before putting everything out in the garden at the end of the month. 

  • Map out this year’s garden by April 1stdone
  • Plant apple or pear trees – We bought pear and plum – just need to plant them
  • Plant raspberry and blueberry bushes – raspberry canes arrived
  • Plant asparagus and rhubarb – 
  • Grow 500 pounds of food
  • Expand the lasagna garden
  • Finish clearing the front of the property
  • Get some garden pots for the front an back patio/porches

Create 12 New Rug Hooking Patterns and/or Kits Done! {14 out of 12 finished so far}

No new kits… yet. I plan on listing those {2 or 3 new ones} on Saturday the 14th, but I did manage to get some new wool bundles up in my Etsy shop last night. Lots of red, creams and blues {and a few black bundles too}. 

New Rug Hooking Patterns/Kits For 2022

Have All My 2022 Ornaments Finished by April 1st. Done!

I’m done with garden markers and ornaments for the year. Yipee! Next, I’ll be working on package toppers. Once I get those done, I’ll clean out the space I was using for pottery and reorganize the basement to better suit the space for all my rug hooking kits and patterns.

I’m thinking by late fall all the projects {craft space and kitchen} will be completed and this winter will be a super low stress one. 

52 Walks {We’ve gone on 10 of 52 so far}

There was a lot of walking this week. Mainly pushing the wheelbarrow from one end of the property to the other. 🙂 

Visit 12 Towns in Maine That I Haven’t Been to Before

We visited a new town yesterday! I’ll tell you all about it soon. 🙂
