My Big List of Goals I’m Going to Accomplish in 2022 Week 20 of 52

Posted by admin on

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

Remodel The Kitchen

All kitchen projects are on hold until the dishwasher, and oven are delivered. Which is a good thing… because I’m having too much fun playing in my new religious family sized garden plot to care about anything kitchen related. 🙂

Sell Enough Rugs to Buy an AGA Stove {$12,777.50 of $22,000 earned so far}

I’m more than halfway there! Luckily the stove isn’t supposed to arrive until the end of summer so I still have plenty of time to hook and sell new pieces. 🙂 

Fill the Canning Cupboard 

Hopefully 120 days from now this sucker will be FULL of homemade goodness. 

So far this year I have canned:

Not canned but in jars:

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.

Working on it! 

Yesterday I moved the cabbage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts from the lasagna garden over to the religious garden as the HH wants to work on leveling the field {the lasagna garden} area a bit more this summer. 

Keep The Crafts… In The Craft Room.

This marks 3 straight weeks that the crafts have stayed out of the craft room. Shocking, I know!

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

Garden by day, hook by night. That’s my summer routine. And I’m loving it. 🙂 

1 Craft / Blog Free Day {I’ve had 17 craft/blog free days this year so far.}

Keep My Husband Busy 

Our new batch of garden soil was delivered yesterday morning but because it had rained the night before, the ground was a soggy mess and so the HH didn’t want to ruin the grass by loading up 500 pounds of dirt in the bucket of the tractor and driving it over the grass. 

So he started hauling wheelbarrow loads full of the soil down to the garden.

And then the handle on the wheelbarrow broke. 

Mavis: But I just dug up the raspberry canes!!! Can’t you fix it? 

HH: It’s a specific piece of wood! No, I can’t just go cut a piece of wood and attach it. I’ll have to go to the hardware store and get a new one tomorrow. 

Mavis: But I need to get my raspberries in the ground today!!

Well, it took a little longer to haul the soil down to the garden… but he did it with 1 handle. 

He loves me. 🙂

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

My House Projects For This Year {so far}

My next project will be touching up the paint on the side of the barn {because the HH ripped the side of it off trying to move around the dirt pile with his tractor. Whoops.

Not a new recipe, but I did make a batch of cinnamon rhubarb jam this past week. Delicious!

So far this year I have shared the following recipes:
