My Big List of Goals I’m Going to Accomplish in 2022 Week 22 of 52

My Big List of Goals I’m Going to Accomplish in 2022 Week 22 of 52

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

Remodel The Kitchen

Cabinet guy is coming out this week to measure {hooray!} and so now we just have to finalize the whole drawers vs doors thing. {I’m leaning towards more drawers than doors. 

Sell Enough Rugs to Buy an AGA Stove {$15,417.40 of $22,000 earned so far}

I made another sale, selling one of my *new* rugs for 2022 in my Etsy shop this past week and will be adding more items next Saturday at 6pm EST. I’m about 70% of the way to my goal… and that feels good! 

Fill the Canning Cupboard 

Last week I canned 2 new recipes! One in the pressure canner, and one using the water bath method. I’ll share more about the recipes next week. 

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.

We are still working on the wonderful box of fruits and vegetables my in-laws sent. YUM YUM. 

Keep The Crafts… In The Craft Room.

I made it through a 5th week with no crafts in the dining 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

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 HH and I went on a last minute date yesterday and hung out with some goats. More on that later. 

1 Craft / Blog Free Day {I’ve had 19 craft/blog free days this year so far.}

Keep My Husband Busy 

It was a busy week for the HH. 

He got the dock in the water, launched the dinghy, finished tilling up the garden for me and mowed the back 40. Next up are garden boxes for the front of the house and building a new set of stairs down to the water. 

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 {We decided to move the wisteria to another location instead}
  • 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}

All house projects are on hold right now as I finish up my planting. July always seems like a good month for house projects as it’s usually when everything has been planted and there isn’t too much to harvest until the end of the month. 

Once I get everything planted {fruit trees, squash, beans for drying} then I’ll bust out the paint cans. 

  • 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

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

Still no oven… but I do plan to share another canning recipe in a few days. 

So far this year I have shared the following recipes:

Listen to 12 Audiobooks {11/12 so far}

I think The Boys has been my favorite book so far this year. The audiobook selection isn’t very exciting this month so I don’t have another book lined up yet. Maybe next month when the library adds more titles something will catch my eye. 

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.

HH if you are reading this HURRY UP and get us some fishing poles!!!

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

My {sad} little order of sweet potato slips arrived on Friday and I got them into the ground yesterday after the HH finished tilling. I hope they make it. I’ve only planted sweet potato slips once before and while we got a nice crop, the slips looked much better than the ones we received this time around. 

Other garden projets that need to be completed this summer:

  • 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 
  • Plant asparagus and rhubarb – 
  • Grow 500 pounds of food
  • Expand the lasagna garden We created a new garden plot instead
  • 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! {16 out of 12 finished so far}

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!

52 Walks {We’ve gone on 12 of 52 so far}

Ciggies and Fireball. It looks like someone bought the 10 pack and had a goooooood time. It’s too bad they threw their empties on the ground and walked away though….

They could have turned those puppies into some serious cash {and bought even MORE Fireball} had they only known they could turn those empty containers into salt and pepper shakers. 🙂 🙂 🙂 

Thanks Tanya for the picture. You made my day. Ha!

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