Weekly Goals

Set Goals

Here are my goals from last week and how I did:

Spiritual Goals

1. Daily mass and meditation, and rosary. (on-going)

2. Memorize Psalm 62:2-3 (“My soul rests in God alone, from whom comes my salvation. God alone is my rock and salvation, my secure height; I shall never fall.”)

Family/Mothering Goals

3. Write love note for Michael and hide it in his work bag.

4. Do last minute shopping and preparations for Andrew’s birthday party next Saturday. The party was a great success! Pictures and update to follow soon.

5. Read “Wake Me in Spring” and take Andrew to library to get more books.

Personal Development

7. Exercise on treadmill for 30 minutes.

8. Stay on top of my course work.

9. Re-knit Kindle Cover and start scarf I’m making for a friend. (I get bored knitting scarves, so it takes me a long time.)

Blogging goals

10. Plan posts and writing schedule for the month of April.

11. Write first draft for e-book. (I’ll get this done eventually!) I was going to take this off, but decided to keep it up one more week. If I have it in front of me, I may actually get it done!

Since we have just entered into Holy Week, I am paring down my goals for this week:

1. Besides my daily mass, rosary and bible time, spend some extra time in prayer and reflection on the mysteries being celebrated this week.

2. Help Andrew write out and mail his thank you notes.

3. Keep up with college course work.

4. Plan out blog posts for the month of April.

Menu Madness: June 13-19, 2010

Well, the menu never got done last week. I was in the process of putting it together when I found out about my cousin; so, although I wrote up an outline, I never got the menu posted.  (She’s doing okay, btw.)

We are going to be spending some time with family over the coming weekend, so I won’t be planning for those days.

Without further ado, here’s my weekly menu for next week:

Wednesday: Waffles with strawberries
Thursday: Fruit and yogurt platter

Saturday: Blueberry pancakes
