This week's mini-goals

My schedule is pretty empty this week and I need focus or the week will drift by.  I am starting the week with delivery of a phone coaching session (yeah for a small amount of paid work) to an overseas client who is in the US today so the time is reasonable (yeah again).  Other than Pilates Wednesday afternoon and volunteering on Thursday morning the rest of the week has no appointments.  There is still laundry, groceries, cooking, cleaning, dog walking, etc. but I need some other areas of focus to be productive every day.  So here they are:

- NOPE, its too hot to drive over there! - Check out trendy fabric shop and possibly buy pattern and fabric to make PJ shorts & top -

- DONE - Do major pruning in front yard and continue clearing hill and woods in back.  Can I fill every yard waste trash barrel?  We have 15 of them - 11 are awaiting pick up today as the result of last week's efforts. - Tuesday filled 5 with major pruning work in front; Wednesday 6 more from woods/hillside!

- DONE - Set goals for second half of year and try to come up with one that is large and I am excited about

- Beat the heat by exercising early or indoors every day except Wednesday - Missed Monday but Tuesday & Thursday I walked the dog early.

- Play with my existing wardrobe for some July vacation packing options.  I like that Adrienne at The Rich Life on a Budget auditioned her outfits for her recent European trip and that Audrey at Putting me Together has been creating more looks with what she has.  Vivienne at The Vivienne Files also puts together wonderful travel capsule wardrobes.  Hopefully this won't lead to much shopping!

    1. Maureen, I think you are one busy woman from your blog posts! It's just hubby and I plus the dog in our home now which leaves each of us with lots of choices as to how to use our time. I've already failed on one goal - I took a nap instead of exercising yesterday LOL.

  3. I am jealous that you can sew well enough to make pjs (or any type of clothing). When I grow up...

    1. It's those 9 years of 4-H as a child! I don't know if I will make them or not as now it tends to cost more to sew than to buy. I have heard about this shop and want to see it though.

  4. Sounds like you have a nice week planned. I find that if I dont have at least a few goals each week, I end up sitting for two long or daydreaming away......okay on occasion in retirement but not as a regular thing.

    1. I can relate - I find that my afternoons especially end up being frittered away.
