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

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

It’s that time of year again, the time to set goals and to start the year off on a positive note. Somehow when you write your goals down, and share them with friends {or just put them on your fridge so you can see them everyday} goals are so much easier to accomplish. 

If I can make a list of all the things I want to accomplish in 2022, so can you. No excuses! Just do it. 

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

Remodel The Kitchen

The biggest goal by far this year will be to remodel the kitchen.

I know exactly what I want to do: white lower cabinets {but probably not upper cabinets}, white walls, black soapstone or a dark quartz countertop with a matching sink, a built in microwave and a pantry. 

Sounds pretty straightforward, don’t you think? 

Summer, would be the perfect time to get this project underway if you ask me, the weather would be nice and we could cook outside. So hopefully our timeline will match up the builders. 

Sell Enough Rugs to Buy an AGA Stove 

Oh, and an AGA cooktop stove in duck egg blue. 🙂 Yep, if this is the house…. then I might as well go all out and pick something I know I’ll still want 20 years from now. 

AGA’s are quirky, unique and PERFECT for baking and slow cooking and I’ve always wanted one. Plus, I think one would look pretty darn cool in my coastal Maine kitchen.

The only catch is, the AGA is a wee bit pricey. As in $22,000! {OH MY WORD!} 

Some people drive fancy cars, some people still have kids at home and are saving for their college education and some people want to travel. All I want to do is stay home, bake cookies, drink tea and hook rugs all day long. 

But the price tag. It’s a doozy. And so in order to pay for the AGA, my goal is to earn it by selling a boatload of rugs this year. Plus it will keep me focused on creating new patterns and kits, which is another goal of mine. 

Remember when you were a kid and you had to save up for a bike, or a new pair of skates, and the anticipation of each week inching closer to your goal? Well that’s sort of how I feel about this stove. 

I have no idea how many rugs I’ll need to hook/sell to earn the AGA… but I know it will keep me busy doing something I love… and that’s rug hooking. 

Fill the Canning Cupboard

We ordered a new canning cupboard last fall, and with a little luck, it should be here sometime in March. My goal is to not only fill the canning cupboard with loads of homegrown goodness, but it try a few new canning recipes this year as well. 

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

Anyone want to take a guess what it is?

The “product” will be absolutely FREE to me, but I think it will be kind of fun to see if I can turn it into enough money to pay our entire grocery bill for the year. {More on this later}

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables

I could be doing WAY better at this than I am now. But just to clarify, any fruit in pie form does count

Keep The Crafts… In The Craft Room!

Seriously, the craft situation is out of control at our house and I need to do a better job at keeping the crafts… IN THE CRAFT ROOM. 

So each week I plan to post a picture of our dining room to help rid me of this bad habit. 

Tap Our 2 Maple Trees and Make Maple Syrup

How hard can it be, right? 

Make a Quilt Top

2 years ago I bought enough fabric to make a quilt {or two} and haven’t done anything with it since. This will probably be the hardest goal for me to accomplish this year because I am not into sewing. Quilting takes precision and patience and is insanely time consuming and honestly, it’s not my favorite thing. 

I plan to make the quilt top and then ship it off to my friend Zoë so she can quilt it for me with her big fancy machine. 

Be More Intentional With My Time

On Monday mornings I will create a weekly to do list of the tasks that need to get done that week and together, the HH and I GET THEM DONE. {Note to self: Tell the HH about this.}

1 Craft / Blog Free Day 

At my husbands request….

Be a normal wife. At least one day a week. Put down the dye pots, and the rug hook and turn off my computer.

I suppose every second of the day doesn’t have to be spent being productive, right? {Did I seriously just say that?}
