My Big List of Goals I’m Going to Accomplish in 2022 Week 36 of 52

Posted by admin on

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

Remodel The Kitchen 

The kitchen looks exactly the same as it did last weekend. The Girl came for a visit and stayed an extra day and then I did a bunch of canning and never got around to getting the paint on the walls {it’s been primed though}. 

Oops. Oh well. That just means I’ll have to add painting to my to-do list this week. 

Sell Enough Rugs to Buy an AGA Stove DONE!!!

I hit my goal of selling enough of my 2022 hooked rugs and pillows in my Etsy shop to pay for my new Duck Egg Blue AGA cooker.

The cabinets are slated to be installed the first week in October and the AGA will be delivered the week after that. Countertops will likely be installed 4-6 weeks AFTER the cabinets are in so that means we will be without any plumbing in the kitchen {sink, dishwasher} until those are done. 

But at least I’ll have an oven!! 🙂 

Fill the Canning Cupboard 

The canning cupboard is almost full! This past week The Girl and I canned Basil and Tomato Garlic Sauce. 

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’ve decided to wait until fall to list my beach finds. I know this is cutting my selling season a bit short, but with so many other things going on right now, I just don’t have the time to add another thing to my to-do list.

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables.

Brown sugar glazed sweet potatoes. Mmm Mmm Good. 🙂 

Keep The Crafts… In The Craft Room.


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

No comment. 

1 Craft / Blog Free Day a Week {I’ve had 35 craft/blog free days this year so far.}

With all the canning that’s been going on lately, it’s been super easy to unplug and stay off the internet. 

Be More Intentional With My Time

I helped The Girl can 34 jars of salsa, 9 jars of ketchup and 7 jars of tomato sauce. 🙂 

Keep My Husband Busy 

The HH finished a bunch of projects last week but now I can’t remember what they were. He also helped out in the kitchen by seeding 2 batches of hot peppers for me {so I could dehydrate them}. I told him to wear gloves but he thought that was a dumb idea so he didn’t. 

Well… guess who was talking about how his hands were STILL burning after 2 days. Hmmm. Maybe he’ll wear them next time. 

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} DONE
  • Remodel 1 bathroom

  • Build an arbor for the wisteria {We decided to move the wisteria to another location instead}
  • Order 4 cords of firewood by the end of May and stack them DONE
  • Sand the floors in the entire house DONE
  • Install new garage door openers DONE {new addition}

My House Projects For This Year {so far}

I am hoping to get all my inside painting done on Monday and Tuesday of this week. That way we can start to work on finishing up the painting that needs to be done outside {it’s been too hot to paint outside this summer}. 

Things I need to get done this year:

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

Try 24 New Recipes {19 down, 5 to go}

I didn’t try any new recipes this past week but I’ve been craving some Dutch Oven Cinnamon Raisin Bread so I think I might take The Duck Lady up on her offer and use her oven this week. 

So far this year I have shared the following recipes:

Listen to 12 Audiobooks {12/12 so far} DONE

I’m currently waiting to listen to Hello, Molly!: A Memoir by Molly Shannon. Maybe I’ll get to listen to it by Christmas.
